I recently graduated from Simmons College with a bachelor's of science degree in nursing. I attended the college as a non-traditional/returning/adult student. My program was five semesters long. While I feel the nursing department went out of their way to ensure I had the best clinical experience, I am dissatisfied with their customer service and respect for students. In the mix of traditional students and adult students, I felt the adult students were forgotten about easily or were disrespected. Our busy schedules (most of us had families, other jobs, lived far away from campus) were often mocked in the department and it was commonplace to be told "you have too much on your plate." The professors were not the best and the brightest but did an overall good job of teaching the subject matter and preparing us for the NCLEX exam. It is quite possible that Simmons College offers a better, more organized, more respectful graduate program for nurses but if you are considering Simmons for a second bachelor's degree I would highly advise you look elsewhere.
