Sesquicentennial: An Oral History of Augsburg’s Nursing Department

Please help us celebrate the history of the Department of Nursing at Augsburg University! The department has a long history of commitment to social justice, human rights, and care for marginalized communities in both local and global settings since its inception.

In preparation for the University’s Sesquicentennial, the Nursing Department wanted to capture what they do in a narrative history that would reveal their unique vision, identity, and philosophy. Over the last few years, oral histories were recorded from current and retired nursing faculty, directors of the Health Commons, and key informants from the community.

Enjoy watching this video that captures our exploration of themes: The People, The History, and The Practice. This project was not only valuable, but insightful and inspiring for those who continue with this work. We had hoped to share this video at a celebration luncheon in April, which had to be cancelled due to the pandemic.
