Augsburg DNP Website



Immersion courses and practicums are integrated into all of Augsburg’s nursing programs—BSN, MAN, and DNP. These educational experiences are not medical missions but explore the principles of transcultural nursing and holism of each community. Preferential emphasis is placed on settings where one encounters persons underserved and struggling with poverty, despair, and access to basic health care and supportive services. Participating in these opportunities are life-transforming and allow students to gain understanding into the socio-cultural complexities that lead to health and healing in communities locally and abroad.


Augsburg Central Health Commons Blue Tree LogoAugsburg’s Health Commons sites are nursing-led drop-in centers led and organized by nursing faculty members and students.  Through the years, Augsburg nurses have met community members who have welcomed their service. In the relationships that have developed, nurses continue to experience the mutuality of health–when someone grows stronger, that strength helps everyone in the community. Since its opening, the Health Commons has been supported by donations of both time and supplies from people of many backgrounds who want to help. The original partners continue to support the Commons, and nurses from the wider nursing community also assist in its operation.
