What our students are saying

“The BSN program at HBU is very challenging and very rewarding. It’s not as simple as just attending classes and receiving a piece of paper. The program is designed to push you to your limits and expand the way you see patients. I feel the program has molded me into a better person, and I know it can do the same for many more nurses.”

Mark DeSouza

“The healthcare community in Houston recognizes the quality of HBU graduates. In addition to the academic component of the school, HBU’s religious component also makes the BSN experience unique. It has helped me manage delicate psychological experiences, from observing possible abuse situations in pediatrics, to seeing geriatric patients struggle with day to day activities. I cannot say enough positive things about HBU’s BSN program and recommend it to anyone pursuing their advanced nursing degree.”

Nadine Turner

“I did extensive research and learned that HBU had an academically rigorous program and small class sizes which appealed to me. It has a very good reputation and, in talking with students at a variety of different schools, I realized I could really challenge myself and learn significantly at HBU.”

Pablo Ramos

“To me, the greatest strength of the program was how well the entire staff was involved in my success. Even though I was 5 hours away from the University and never met anyone face to face, I felt like they were down the street and as if they were all family. This a very important quality especially when one feels alone or like giving up on those beautiful weekends when your actual family members are having a good time while you’re stuck in a room studying. The entire staff involvement makes you push through these tough times.”

Roberto Ramirez

“As a Christian affiliated school, I think we all need some sort of support in times of difficulties. Personally, as a Christian, I rely on God’s help and HBU provides that help and guidance at those times of difficulties. This does not mean in any way that the school is only for Christians. I had the privilege of taking classes with individuals from different religions or with different faiths. HBU is a home for everybody.”
