Post-graduation Employment Outcome Data: The Baptist School of Health Professions (BSHP) strives for 70% placement in the field post-graduation as prescribed by the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES), our institutional accreditor. The BSHM program has not met the 70% benchmark in recent years; therefore, ABHES has issued a Program Specific Warning. This warning required the school to propose a teach-out plan. Should the plan be implemented, BSHP would provide all required programming for degree completion to currently enrolled students.

Length: May vary depending on general education transfer credits awarded, as short as 3 semesters (1 Year).
