Reaching New Heights

It doesn't get bigger than Magnet®

Journey to Magnet®

MoBap is proud to be the first in St. Louis County to be recognized as a Magnet® hospital, the highest credential a healthcare organization can receive for nursing excellence and quality patient care. 

A History of Nursing Excellence

Nursing at Missouri Baptist has a long and rich history of delivering exceptional patient care. Not only do we employ a culture where quality meets compassion, we are the destination where nurses come to train and expand their clinical careers. 

In 1895, we opened the Missouri Baptist Nursing Training School. Nursing students worked 10-hour days at the hospital in addition to their studies. During its 105-year tenure, the school graduated 4,300 students. 

The Barnes-Jewish Goldfarb School of Nursing opened at Missouri Baptist in the new Clinical Learning Institute in 2012. This atmosphere of education and research allows our nurses to continue to explore new beginnings. Leveraging the strengths of our past in combination with a strong nursing vision for the future, the Missouri Baptist nurses reached new heights in professional practice.
