A master’s in nursing from Augsburg focuses on health in community life, both locally and globally, and supports students to envision new models of holistic practice across care settings.
Choose the Transcultural Nursing in Community track, designed to prepare nurses for advanced practice across care settings in culturally diverse communities; or the Transformational Leadership track, designed to develop nurse leaders’ ability to critically analyze, articulate, and develop effective strategies to cope with high level healthcare disparities.
The distinguishing feature of our program is the opportunity to complete life-transforming practicums and courses in one or two week immersions in Namibia, Guatemala, Mexico, England, Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, South Dakota, and Minneapolis. These allow students to gain understanding into the socio-cultural complexities that lead to health and healing in communities.
Most courses meet for five-hour classroom sessions, six or seven times in a 15-week semester, and include an online component. Normally, students complete the program in two years, or at your own pace. Classes are offered on our Minneapolis and Rochester, Minn. locations.
