Hi, I was accepted to both Simmons' and Columbia's direct entry NP programs and am having a hard time deciding. I was wondering if anyone had any insight into why one program might be better than the other or if one has a better reputation. For what it's worth, I am from an hour away from Boston. Simmons is an FNP program, while I am into Columbia for adult (but it's easy to switch tracks). Columbia grants a BS/MS while Simmons only grants an MS, but I have heard from Simmons grads that this does not hinder your chances of finding an RN or an NP job. Any insights or opinions are greatly appreciated!
