Master of Arts in Nursing

You want to transform health care. Augsburg’s Master of Arts in Nursing degree will empower you to make change in your field.

Nurses today and in the future must practice confidently in diverse communities and in complex institutions. A master’s in nursing from Augsburg University focuses on health in community life, both locally and globally, and supports students to envision new models of holistic practice across care settings.

Within the context of liberal arts education and guided by the values of the Lutheran Church, the Master of Arts in Nursing program prepares nurses for transformational leadership and transcultural nursing practice across care settings with particular emphasis on promoting health equity locally and globally.

student experience

“I chose Augsburg for their flexibility for working students. My experience with the faculty has been nothing short of amazing. They say it takes a village to get through some things in life- and Augsburg faculty is part of that village. Faculty make themselves available but also care about their students and their well-being. You are not a number at Augsburg, you are a unique individual. My current program is helping me grow professionally by creating a more culturally competent leader. There are many things that make Augsburg special. One of the factors is the equity and inclusion Augsburg strives to achieve. You are respected and celebrated for the individual you are, and you have a safe learning environment that is judgment free. You should choose Augsburg for its rich curriculum, cost, connection with faculty and cohort, and unmatched experiences.”
