The Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program at Augsburg College is an innovative program with two tracks of study for nurses
with baccalaureate and masters degrees in nursing. Students in the DNP program benefit from one-on-one interaction with faculty
who have broad experiences in a variety of cultural contexts locally and abroad.

  • The post-master’s DNP-TCN (Transcultural Nursing) track prepares nurses for advanced transcultural nursing leadership in
    community life, integrating holistic practice modalities that uphold and improve human potential across care settings and care
    systems. See:
  • The post-baccalaureate DNP-FNP (Family Nurse Practitioner) track is focused on nursing leadership and integrative primary
    care of families across cultures and care settings. Graduates of the DNP-FNP track of study will be eligible to apply for
    certification as Family Nurse Practitioners through the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). See: http://www.

The Augsburg College Master of Arts in Nursing program has two tracks of study—Transformational Nursing Leadership or
Transcultural Nursing. Both tracks prepare nurse leaders to assume a wide variety of roles and responsibilities throughout the health
care system and in emerging care settings in communities. Organized into 33 semester credits---15 semester credits in a Nursing
Core and 18 semester credits in one of the two Tracks of Study. Practica are taken concurrently with most courses and are
integrated throughout the program and equal 405 practicum hours. Time to degree completion takes an average 22 months when
studying full-time (two courses per term), and 32 months when studying part-time (one course per term). For more information see:
