Degree: Nursing

Caution !!very expensive & misleading. Recorded lectures horrible & class meetings, but still NO TEACHING. Registering for classes a nightmare, NOT be able to work FT and pass. Fail/drop rate for a few classes is 75%. Unfair and secretive testing. Brick and mortar school but, admissions reps are recruiters!! Selling that Simmons program is different but it really is the same or worse than other online programs. Some of the required textbooks were written by the instructors.

Just horrible, flaky and lazy instructors, they will retaliate if you complain, they do not teach you. For the money they charge, you can finish 2 FNP programs somewhere else.

In your online lectures you end up being split into groups and... Read More

The online weekly live sessions have the potential to be a wonderful... Read More

I do not recommend this program. I am a good student just looking for a program that is accountable. They don't let you review quizzes or exams -so if you fail you never get feedback. This is a new rule but I wish I had done a different program. Many other problems such as poorly constructed exams and some bad teachers. Find another program.
