"My experience with Simmons has been wonderful. I feel as though I have the tools needed to go into my first clinical in urgent care with confidence. I start next Wednesday and have enjoyed my Immersion Weekend here in Boston. Thank you Simmons faculty for all you do and for future endeavors!"

"Simmons has been a new adventure, it’s great that they offer online because it works with my family and work life. I’ve met great life long friends at Immersion and really value the time here even tho it’s more expensive it’s worth the price. There’s lots of flexibility in schedule."

"The program is a well organized program with well throughout immersion weekend activities and classes. I think that the only improvement can be the Coursework load during semesters with clinicals and the order of some of them. Scholarly inquiry does not need to be 2 semesters at all but health assessment should be."

"Good Program. I picked Simmons mainly because they have clinical placement specialists that find your clinical site for you. The classes are also live and taught by APRNs. The one downside about online program is that it is fairly new so they make changes each term."

"The online MSN program is very convenient. There are weekly live sessions that you have to attend with your classmates and professor and I like the idea of that. It keeps me on my toes and allows me to stay on track. I can also do the school work at my own pace, as all the work for the term is available. I am not graduating until next year, but I know I made the Right choice!"
