    Hi Adventure780- I have been doing some research on this new program. It seems like a good program, but is expensive, just like most of the nursing programs in the area. If you contact the admissions department, they are really helpful and more than happy to answer all questions. They are willing to walk you through the application process, if you need help.

    Simmons has one of the best NP programs in the state. They are preparing to take their first online cohort, it has typically been a brick and mortar school.

    You might get more responses in the MA Nursing Programs section.

    I just came across this online program recently. It looks awesome and as far as their traditional program goes....very successful. I am in the process of my application for the oct start date. The admissions office seems very helpful!

    I'm surprised they aren't letting you try to fix things for Oct cohort since the final deadline hasn't approached yet. Did they give you any reasons for not accepting you?

    I submitted mine on Sunday. They said it takes about 4-6weeks to notify decision. Ill definitely share whatever I can either way.

    My BSN was 3.8 and my ADN was much lower. I still have not heard anything back yet and classes begin oct 15 for the next up coming cohort.

    they should go by bsn gpa since that was after your adn. Good luck hopefully they will tell you soon so you can get your supplies and organize yourself
