High-demand track added to doctoral nursing program

The Augsburg College Nursing Department added an innovative, accredited, and high-demand track to its Doctor of Nursing Practice program to respond to the evolving needs of nurses, communities, and the medical industry. The new track, DNP—Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP), is geared toward preparing students who already hold their bachelor of science in nursing to apply for certification as FNPs through the American Nurses Credentialing Center. It is the second doctoral program offered by Augsburg. The first doctoral program, the DNP—Transcultural Nursing Leadership, readies nurses who hold a master’s degree in nursing for advanced transcultural nursing across care settings and care systems.
