The Baptist Health System School of Health Professions evolved from a private cluster of health science schools sponsored by the Baptist Health System. The School of Nursing was the first school, chartered in 1903. Surgical Technology followed in 1955, Medical Imaging Technology in 1959, and Vocational Nursing in 1988.

In 2010 the school began to offer Online programs and courses. In 2012 the school was approved as a baccalaureate degree granting institution and will launch the RN to BSN degree completion program.
