What Students Are Saying

2.84 Average Rating
BCHS is truly a hidden gem amongst the many top-name colleges in the Mid South. It offers the same education (if not better) as any other school youâ??re considering offers, but for a fraction of the price. The BCHS staff is always there to help you and will do their best to do so.

It is a good school if you want to go into the medical profession. Ive only been here for a little while but the class sizes are small...between 20-35 students per class. I really enjoy going here to Baptist.
Angela from Memphis, TN
Baptist Memorial College of Health Sciences is a great school with a Christian atmosphere. If you want to be a nurse, this is what I would suggest. The teachers are nurses and doctors, etc that teach you with experience.
