DNP 2022 Spring Oral Defense Presentations

Blue and gold banner, with chevron and arrow designs, showing date of DNP Oral Defense Presentations

Thursday April 21 and Friday April 22, 2022

The Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program at San José State University began its independent operations in Fall of 2019, and has been supporting our students toward innovative, evidence-based thinking ever since.

You are invited to join us for a live, virtual presentation as our current cohort presents and defends the culmination of two years of hard work! Presentations take place over two days: come for both days, for one day, or just part of a day - any way you are able to attend, come for healthcare innovation and inspiration by extraordinary doctoral candidates.
