Seven 4-semester credit hour courses, including:

A minimum grade of C in each nursing course and a cumulative major GPA of 2.5 are required. Students also must complete Augsburg’s residence and general education requirements.
The Critical Thinking (CT), Quantitative Reasoning (QR), Speaking (S), and Writing (W) graduation skills are embedded throughout the required courses in the Nursing major and are met by completing the major.
Students petitioning to transfer in upper division nursing courses from another institution to meet requirements in the nursing major at Augsburg must consult a nursing advisor about potential adjustments to their course requirements to fulfill each of these graduation skills.
The BSN program has been planned so that courses in the nursing major can be completed over 16 months of full-time study taking two courses per semester. Students can pursue their studies as quickly as 12 months taking three courses per semester, based on personal choice.
More time may be required to complete the total course of study depending on the number of liberal arts (general education) courses individual students need to complete the BSN degree and the number of credits each student transfers to Augsburg University from other colleges or universities. Students in Nursing may take non-nursing courses in both the Day and Adult Undergraduate programs. Students will be assigned to a nursing faculty adviser to develop a plan of study.
