    SIMMONS: GREAT NURSING PROGRAM

    Nursing program is spectacular and the location is the best. It's located in Boston and has a bunch of world-class hospitals right down the road. Plus, it's the city and there is so much to do and see.


    Course Curriculum - 

    Very in-depth and the teachers are always trying to help us out. They are on the ball when you aren't doing well and covers everything you need to know to become a component nurse. After taking the classes I feel well versed in the info.
