Enrolling in a DNP program was a personal goal for me, and since I love to continually learn, this was the perfect program to couple with an active career."
- Kinga P. Olson, DNP, FNP-C (2019 Graduate)
Part of being a graduate of the DNP program is having a write up of one's Doctoral project published. But the scholarly work doesn't stop there. Many alumni continue to produce and share work vital to the nursing practice and healthcare of their communities.

Are you a graduate of the DNP program? Either though the NCC/Fresno partnership or of the SJSU solo program? Do you have advice for future students, an anecdote about your time or how your degree is helping your career? Just want to leave a note with a comment (or a thank you) for a faculty or staff member?
Please do! This alumni survey was made specifically for alumni to have a place to be heard. In the survey you'll have a chance to give permission for your comments to be used online, in presentations, or even just as helpful advice to current DNP students. If you just want to leave a note, and not have it shared, you can indicate that, too.
We're excited to hear from you!
This investment in yourself is well worth the short-term sacrifice. I had several goals I wished to pursue as a result of receiving my DNP: obtaining a faculty position & publishing. I am happy to say I have achieved both due in part to the terrific support and guidance I received from faculty and fellow alumni of this program."
