Courses Offered

  • NUR 742A or 702 2-credit Practicum Experiences (Doctor of Nursing Practice Program)
  • NUR 500 P
  • NUR 541 P
  • NUR 505 P

*Course specific and hours of credit:

Graduate students enrolled in NUR 541P-A, NUR 505P-B or NUR 500P-B or for DNP practicum NUR 742-A will earn 2 course credits for 90 practicum hours.  Students who are in NUR 541P, NUR505P or NUR 500P must be enrolled in the following courses concurrently in order to use the practicum hours towards required practicum sections.  For example, you must be taking NUR 541 and NUR 500 in the same semester you travel in order to use towards the assigned practicum (NUR 541P + NUR 500P).  If you are in one of the DNP tracks, and you are taking only one MAN course (NUR 500, NUR 541, or NUR 505), then you can enroll in a NUR 701 to count 45 hours towards your required DNP hours as well as the required practicum course (NUR 500P, NUR 541P or NUR 505P).  If you are in the MAN program, and you are only in one course, then you can only count these hours as 45 hours.  All students, despite the differences in courses or programs, will be expected to participate in the immersion experience equally.

Duration:

This immersion course is typically a 9 day experience that is offered in February or March of each year.  Space is limited, so please indicate your interest in participating in the course by emailing Sharon Wade (wades@augsburg.edu).
