You care about the health and wellness of others — and want to use your intelligence and compassion to improve patient care. Our 5-year BS/MSN program will help you make a difference in the rapidly evolving field of health care.
Students complete an accelerated BS in Nursing curriculum prepared for the registered nurse licensure (NCLEX) exam. Upon passing, you’ll move into the graduate portion of the program, which consists of three components – foundational courses, primary care and research. We prepare students to deliver primary health care to diverse populations across the lifespan.
We have close relationships with the world-renowned teaching hospitals and research facilities that surround the Simmons campus like Brigham and Women's Hospital, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston Children's Hospital, and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Our students expand their knowledge by completing clinical rotations and practicums, attending lectures and taking advantage of research opportunities.
Simmons nursing students have a reputation for being the best and brightest in their field. Graduates of this program are prepared to take the family nurse practitioner (FNP) certification exam and find success in positions in a variety of healthcare settings and in Doctor of Nursing (DNP) programs.
