Jessica Francis - 7/13/2019
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2020
"Simmons does prepare us well. Clinical placements could be better. There are many different aspects that could improve. Overall my experience was a positive one. One area that could be improved is clinical placement communications. Immersion could improve by adding more education which would be useful in our practice."

Ally R - 7/13/2019
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2020
"This program was in my career planning because it is incredibly convenient. As a mother of two small children and a wife of 8 years, I have been given the tools and support to pursue my career goals from 2,000 miles away from the maim campus. My brother convinced me to choose this school after he graduated from the program while being in a similar situation to my own. Simmons is conducive to the busy life that nurses inevitably own."

"This program is a really great hybrid program that incorporates online didactic and asynchronous work. It is a rigorous program, but provides a really good knowledge base that is better than some brick and mortar schools. Faculty is helpful and and kind."
