Prepare to make a difference.
Our dual degree program allows you to achieve your goals — and advance your career. You'll earn an MS in Nursing from Simmons and an MS in Society and Human Development and Health from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health (HSPH). Our graduates are eligible to take the family nurse practitioners (FNP) certification exam, and practice as FNPs with a strong concentration in maternal and child health.
You'll be prepared for a rewarding career as an advanced practice professional, delivering appropriate and individualized health care to all populations, and taking on leadership roles in public and private institutions serving women and families.
