BC vs. Northeastern direct entry MSNs

  1. Mom really wants me to move back to Boston, of course, so I'm looking at direct entry Masters programs. Anyone want to weigh in on these two? I don't think there are any other options in Boston, are there?

    Hi ChrisA!

    I have been looking at Boston Direct Entry nursing programs as well and you should check out MGH Institute of Health Professions (Mass General Hospital). I highly recommend going to the info session as it was one of the best I've been to! The faculty seemed very positive, approachable and enthusiastic about their students and the program. They seemed eager to please their students' needs and the connections the school seemed to have with surrounding Nursing opportunities appeared to be quite advantageous. On the whole, although it is a very young program, they gave the impression that they were very organized and very focused on their students. I have also been to BC's and Northeastern's info sessions but I liked MGH the best. Check out their website (http://www.mghihp.edu/).

    Also, Simmons College in Boston has a direct entry program as well. One other nursing program I looked into was U Mass Worcester Med School. Although it isn't in Boston and I'm not sure how far from the city you were looking into being but this school is worth looking into. It has limited areas of study for nursing but I thought it looked like a decent program.

    I hope that helps some and best of luck with your applications! I'm going to be doing my own this summer!

    Hi Kai,
    Why do you think Regis is a ripoff? I did not apply there but am just wondering. I applied to Simmons, NEU, and MGHIHP. Am on the wait list at MGH and have not heard from NEU or Simmons..which makes me nervous. A friend of mine advised me to reapply everywhere next yr if I don't get in this yr, and to apply to Regis. She is at MGHIHP though. Any thoughts on these schools and which you would choose?? Thanks! And where are you applying or where do you go?
