Campus Immersion

Campus Immersion in Boston

All Nursing@Simmons students travel to the Simmons School of Nursing campus in Boston, Mass., to participate in a clinical immersion experience. During the visit, students learn and grow as future Family Nurse Practitioners, and have the opportunity to network and form lasting bonds with fellow students and faculty.

Clinical Seminars and Workshops

Throughout the immersion experience, students participate in seminars and workshops to prepare them for success in their clinical courses. This includes an in-depth suturing workshop that covers hands-on wound assessments, suture closure techniques, and post-closure wound management; a seminar introducing Typhon, the electronic system students will use for logging clinical hours and patient experiences; an overview on programmatic clinical requirements and expectations for placement; and a clinical placement Q&A session with our Nursing@Simmons student ambassadors.

In addition to these workshops and seminars, the campus visit enables students to connect with their peers, advisors, and faculty for advice and support. The immersion experience culminates with students receiving their white coats and participating in a White Coat Oath, followed by the opportunity to unwind during a celebratory group dinner.

Immersion Cancellation Policy: Simmons reserves the right to cancel or reschedule immersion experiences due to weather, enrollment, or other factors that may impact the overall student experience.
