Program similar to Simmon's Direct Entry MSN?

Does anyone know if there are any programs similar to the Simmon's Direct Entry MSN that allow you to get your MSN RN and NP at once. There are several programs that allow you to get your RN, then work for a couple of years and then get your Nurse Practioner separately. However, as far as my research has taken me, I only found Simmon's which will let you get your RN and NP in the same program without having to reapply to another program.

Splitting the programs and getting your NP later adds a lot of cost and additional time to reaching the final goal which is practicing as an NP. If anyone knows programs similar to Simmons, please let me know. I have a bachelors form UCI and nursing will be my second career. Therefore, I am eager to find a program that allows me to reach my goal directly without time gaps (and more money for a NP certification program).

Best regards,

you can try Colombia's DNP program, but it's going to be 4 years and very expensive
