Simmons School of Nursing

Since 1902, Simmons University School of Nursing has been preparing nurses to make a meaningful difference in health care by taking the next step in their careers. The School of Nursing campus is located in the renowned Longwood Medical Area of Boston, Massachusetts, Simmons School of Nursing serves as a prominent authority in the New England region.

As an innovator in health care education, the School of Nursing employs expert faculty members who are leaders in their fields. The College of Natural, Behavioral, and Health Sciences Dean Judy Beal has been honored as a fellow by the American Academy of Nursing.

Simmons School of Nursing is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) and by national and regional discipline-specific agencies in the health care fields. The Nursing@Simmons programs are each accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) through 2019.

We are dedicated to providing our students with a powerful return on their educational investment and are committed to their long-term success. New legislation brought about by the Affordable Care Act, combined with an aging baby boomer population, will result in a sharp increase in the need for talented health care professionals. Simmons School of Nursing graduates are primed to fill those roles.

The future looks bright for nurses, as health care employment is projected to increase 18 percent from 2016 to 2026, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). Simmons School of Nursing is committed to helping its nurses achieve their educational and professional goals.


The FNP and RN to MSN programs are accredited through 2019 by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), a national accrediting agency that ensures the quality of nursing programs.
