DNP-FNP courses are all offered using a variety of hybrid formats—immersion in a cultural context, on-line, in person, video-conferencing, etc. In general, one’s physical presence in class is required at least once or twice per month. Classes are held on Augsburg’s campus in Minneapolis and at the Rochester sites at Bethel Lutheran Church or at the Hermitage Farm Center for Healing.
Classes taught in an immersion format off-campus and abroad are optional, however, students are highly encouraged to enroll in these life-transforming experiences. Video conferencing is used to connect Rochester and Minneapolis for some classes, however, all students and faculty must be prepared to travel at least once a term between Rochester and Minneapolis for classes.
