"The availability of online classes for working people, people with children and busy schedules is a huge plus. Great program for a self motivated, independent person. The people you meet in this program will become your lifelong friends as well. Definitely consider this as an option."

"Simmons prepares you for certification, it’s challenging, it’s on line and helps me work around my work schedule. Student support staff Jay Tallmadge is the best! Immersion was a great time! It brought all the faces together, we met classmates and learned a lot about each other"

"Great online program, very rigorous but it definitely is preparing me to be an FNP. I feel like the online program is preparing me to be a competent NP. They also assist in finding you your clinical placement which was an essential component for me when choosing a program"

"My time at Simmons has been an amazing experience. Classes have been informative challenging and transforming. I believe that the FNP program at Simmons University fully prepares new practitioners to take on the challenges that the future holds. As I continue with the last year of my studies at Simmons I hope to continue to improve and evolve with my assessment skills along with my use of medications and more. It has been a challenging road but I’ve been met with many new friends in the program who have supported me as I have them and we continue to move forward together."

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2021
"Great program especially for those that are unable to attend a traditional program. The virtual classroom keeps you accountable and makes you feel like you are still in a classroom. The teachers are always available for questions. Immersion weekend is so much fun, you get to see all your fellow classmates in person."

"Wonderful university. For their online program you learn everything from the comfort of your couch but still get the college feel. They help you set up clinical which can’t be said for other universities. During an intense program like APRN, this helps decrease the stress level tremendously. Each semester they have student support specialists that contact you to make sure you are on track and help you with whatever you need. Tuition is a bit pricy, but worth it!"
