Master’s in Nursing—Direct Entry

General

Program Description

Simmons University’s Master’s in Nursing—Direct Entry (MSN) is designed for students from all academic backgrounds looking to pursue a master’s degree in nursing. Whether your bachelor’s degree is in psychology, chemical engineering, or English, once you've completed the prerequisite courses for admission, you'll be on your way to an MS in Nursing and a career as a family nurse practitioner. 

The MSN is an RN (Master’s in Nursing to Registered Nurse) program and nurse practitioner program that only takes 3 years to complete. In the first four semesters of the program, students complete the pre-licensure nursing curriculum. They learn from industry leaders and are adeptly prepared for the registered nurse licensure (NCLEX) exam. Upon passing, newly-certified RNs move into the program's graduate portion, which consists of three components—foundational courses, primary care, and research.
