"Awesome FNP program. Great staff. Very supportive throughout the length of the program. The professors are very knowledgeable and do their best to prepare students for real world challenges the FNP will face. There is very little “fluff”. It’s all straight forward."

"Because this program is online it’s easier but wish it was cheaper. They try to help you find clinical placement but because I am in Boston it’s really difficult. I recommend networking for clinical site when you start the program. Go ahead and apply"

"I chose Simmons based on thorough research and I was not disappointed. Even though Simmons is an online format degree the personal touch and the commitment of the professor reminds me of my home town university. Each professor knows my name and becomes invested in my determination to learn. The 2SN format and the weekly class room approach keeps me focused. The clinical placement team takes away the stress Of finding a preceptor and allows me to focus on learning. The friendships and connection that I have made will always be valued. I have absolutely no regrets in my choice."

"Has a good reputation that will certainly open doors. When people ask what program I am in and I say Simmons they sit up and take notice. It is expensive but you get what you pay for! It has been hard work but I feel like I will be well prepared for my career. I’m sad that they are changing the program to only one semester of Pharm because I feel like that was something that no other program has and many people I spoke to were very impressed by that."

"The school is unorganized, courses need serious review for being up to date. The courses are often under review/change which severely impacts the students. Very expensive. They claim to place you in clinical but you get push back. I would choose another school if I could go back and do it again."
