UC College of Nursing doctoral students to showcase research

Nine graduate students have been selected to participate in the college's April 25 showcase

The University of Cincinnati College of Nursing will host its second Doctoral Student Project Showcase on April 25 from noon to 5 p.m. in Procter Hall and online via Zoom. The event allows PhD and Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) students the opportunity to present their work and offers the public insight into the breadth and quality of student research happening in the college.

Nine student presentations were chosen from abstract submissions in three categories: evidence-based practice/quality improvement, research and literature review. Submissions were anonymously scored and selected by UC College of Nursing faculty.

The showcase will include in-person and virtual components:

  • Noon to 2 p.m. — Students will display their research posters in Procter Hall's third-floor atrium.
  • 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. — Students will give a short presentation (5 – 7 minutes) on their projects and answer questions via Zoom.

The event is free and open to the public. To attend the virtual session, register on Eventbrite.
