The Augsburg Department of Nursing is designed exclusively for registered nurses (R.N.) who want to increase their opportunities in the healthcare field.
Grounded in a tradition of excellence since 1978, Augsburg’s BSN program is fully accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). The program is structured for practicing RNs to complete a baccalaureate degree on a timely and flexible schedule. With a respected reputation of hybrid learning (in-class and online), exceptional students, and competent faculty, the BSN program caters to RNs in the Twin Cities and through our Rochester, MN campus. Augsburg also offers an RN to MA in Nursing for students with a non-nursing bachelor’s degree and an accelerated RN to MA in Nursing program.
The scope of nursing practice is changing and expanding; nurses practice in hospitals, clinics, corporations, parishes, government agencies, schools, and community organizations, or in their own private practices. Wherever they work, nurses provide comprehensive health care for persons, groups, and communities of diverse cultures and socioeconomic levels throughout the life span.
