Augsburg College




The Augsburg Department of Nursing is designed exclusively for registered nurses who want to increase their opportunities in the health care field.

Augsburg offers nursing courses on alternate weekday evenings to accommodate the schedules of busy nursing professionals. Nursing students are admitted to either Weekend College or the Rochester program, and classes are held on both campuses.

The scope of nursing practice is changing and expanding; nurses practice in hospitals,
clinics, corporations, parishes, government agencies, schools, and community
organizations, or in their own private practices. Wherever they work, nurses provide comprehensive health care for persons, groups, and communities of diverse cultures
and socioeconomic levels throughout the life span.

The bachelor’s degree equips nurses with a working knowledge of the biological, physical, social, behavioral, and nursing sciences. The nursing program at Augsburg also provides educational opportunities to increase their skills in critical thinking, clinical investigation, and decision-making that prepares them to handle challenging new positions in today’s health care field.

Augsburg’s nursing program, leading to a bachelor of science degree with a major in nursing, is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). Graduates of the program are eligible to apply for public health nurse registration in Minnesota. With two additional courses, they are eligible to apply for school nurse certification.
