Leadership Development

  • The Center for Nursing Leadership

From the bedside to the boardroom, The Center for Nursing Leadership provides you with growth opportunities at every stage of your
 career. Whether you are a new clinical leader, manager or supervisor or a future executive, we have the training, experience and guidance
 to take you further.

Learn the leadership essentials that will set you up for success at Baylor Scott & White Health. The Bootcamp onboarding program combines online and classroom learning so you get the support and training you need to hit the ground running as a new clinical leader.

The Foundations of Nursing Leadership program is designed to develop nursing managers and supervisors through interactive classes and group mentoring sessions facilitated by trained mentors. This year-long program emphasizes the application of new learnings in the workplace and skill augmentation in peer mentoring groups.

Our Executive Fellowship program targets and trains our high-performing, high-potential leaders at the manager and director levels to reach even higher. This select program is hosted every two years in partnership with  Southern Methodist University Cox School of Business, Executive Education, and it functions like an executive MBA program for clinical leaders. The fellowship includes four functional areas, including:

  • A 10-course curriculum
  • An individualized career development plan (CDP) based on a formal 360 and personality assessment
  • Mentorship from a senior Baylor Scott & White Health executive
  • A capstone project approved by facility senior executives


Growth plans are important at every stage of your nursing career. Through our Succession Planning program, you work with talent development resources to build out a roadmap for success based on your individual goals and skills. This includes identifying where you might need additional education and training, mentorship and experience.

Evidence shows that national certification coupled with formal education improves patient outcomes by enhancing the knowledge and confidence of the nurse. Nurses at Baylor Scott & White Health have access to national certifications in different specialty areas through our Certification Rewards program. At all levels in nursing, we encourage and recognize the value of professional certifications.

  • We strive through faith and tireless dedication to elevate, inspire, and change nursing for the better.
