Brittany Atkinson - 7/13/2019

"Simmons is a very rigorous program that offers top of the line technology. I like how the NP program is a distance program where you take classes live online with your professor and fellow classmates. Simmons also have a clinical placement team that will find your preceptor. My advisor found a clinical placement in less than 2 weeks. We also have immersion where we check off assessments, learn to suture, and finally meet our classmates."

"Loved the online program. Allowed me to stay local and learn from a great platform. The fact that all students are from various locations enriched my exposure and added so much to conversations and future practices. Student support was always available if any questions. Instructors were knowledgeable and held us to a very high standard. Which will help when acing board exams!"

"The program does ensure that you know how to perform a head to toe assessment and determine differential diagnoses. It is a self driven program though. You will have to study on your own a lot. You will pass the boards based on the board pass rate. If you can self start it is a great program."

"I picked Simmons University because of the blending learning style. I enjoy the interaction with other nurses across the United States. I enjoyed the immersion weekend and suturing lab so I could be well prepared for my clinicals. I'm seriously considering my DNP after this weekend."

"I’ve really enjoyed attending Simmons university. I’m an online student, and how the program classes are set up is phenomenal. You do get the “in person” feeling/experience even though you are attending online. I also had to drop down to part time and take a leave of absence (maternity leave) after my second child was born, and my student advisor was amazing to work with. She made the process smooth and seamless."

"The Nursing@Simmons program is easy to navigate and offers classroom learning that mimics a traditional classroom. Professors are knowledgable in their speciality and helpful when it comes to class work and guidance. Furthermore, there are numerous other faculty/specialists to guide and support you throughout the program."

"Nursing at Simmons online program is super flexible and is very convenient for someone like myself who is still working while in the program. The online classes are face to face so I feel almost no difference from sitting in a classroom. It is a very rigorous program at times, which can be a good thing."
