The Baptist Health System School of Health Professions began as separate schools that were all founded by the Baptist Health System. The first, The School of Nursing, was founded in 1903, followed by the Surgical Technology school in 1955, the Medical Imaging Technology School in 1959, and the Vocational Nursing School in 1988. Eventually, they were all combined into one institution and went from awarding only diplomas to degrees.


The school supports both campus and online learning and students can enroll in one of the following departments:

  • Professional Nursing
  • Surgical Technology
  • Medical Imaging Technology
  • Vocational Nursing
  • Baccalaureate Nursing
  • General Education Studies
  • Healthcare Management

Students attend to earn a Bachelor’s of Science in RN (BSN) or a Bachelor’s in Science in Healthcare Management. There are associate degrees in Medical Imaging, Professional Nursing, and Surgical Technology. Diplomas are awarded in Vocational Nursing. Finally, future healthcare workers can obtain a Post Professional Certificate in Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Diagnostic Medical Sonography, or Computed Tomography.
