Augsburg College seeks candidates to direct and teach in an exciting new track in the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program. Launched in the fall of 2013, the Post-BSN to DNP-Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) track prepares advanced practice nurses to lead healthcare innovations and provide integrative primary care to families across cultures and care settings with emphasis on eliminating health inequities locally and globally.
Augsburg's Doctor of Nursing Practice program is fully accredited by the Commission of Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) and is one of three nursing programs offered at Augsburg College. The BSN completion program is designed for Registered Nurses with Associate of Science degrees who wish to earn a baccalaureate degree in nursing. The Master of Arts in Nursing (MAN) program offers tracks of study in Transcultural Nursing and Transformational Nursing Leadership. Likewise, the DNP program also has two tracks of study: Transcultural Nursing Leadership (DNP-TCN) and the recently launched DNP-FNP track.
Major responsibilities of this 4.5/6 position include directing and purposefully planning for the Post-BSN to DNP-FNP track of study, teaching graduate courses in the DNP-FNP track to adult students in a hybrid format using video conferencing, face-to-face classes and Web enhanced instruction that includes travel between the Twin Cities and Rochester. Additionally, facilitating student admission to the FNP-DNP track and student advising is expected along with committee assignments in the Department and participation in the larger College community through service on committees. Maintaining an innovative program of practice as an FNP is essential. Scholarship that complements teaching and practice is encouraged.
Requirements for this position include an earned doctorate in nursing with current certification as a Family Nursing Practitioner; experience in holistic integrative health care, transcultural nursing and teaching in graduate and undergraduate nursing programs is essential.
