Aspen University's online RN-BSN program was very easy to navigate. I felt like a few classes needed to be to be updated but all in all it was a great program.
The school works well with my schedule. When I need help they give it in the best way. It is booth online and in person!
Very understanding. Great teachers and I love the BSN program. You can start online and finish on campus in just 3 years.
I am a current student in the nursing program at Aspen University in Phoenix, Arizona. I am enjoying my experience and would definitely recommend the program:)
I was able to work independently from my RN to BSN. This school was affordable and easy to work with.
I love this college because I have learned so much about Early Childhood Education. Aspen has some of the best professors and they provide a wealth of knowledge.
I am nearly finished with Aspen's Bachelors degree in Nursing and I would advise anyone who is interested to steer clear of it. Since I am nearly finished, it makes more sense financially to continue however, if I knew then what I know now I would not be at Aspen. The first 4 or 5 classes are nursing related and nursing focused, however, the last few classes are all about your computer skills. You can have your nursing information and knowledge on point but you will get a zero for all assignments if your computer skills are not spot on. It got to the point where I had to hire a computer tech just to help me get through certain assignments. Even if you go into management, as a BSN nurse, you will not have to possess half the computer skills that Aspen requires. My opinion is that this is something Aspen includes in the program to give an otherwise mediocre nursing program a level of difficulty to give the student a feeling that you are "working hard".
Aspen enrollment is simplistic overall the instructors are reasonable, the academic advisor I am unsure what their role truly is as I have had little to no positive experience with her. I have taken six classes and had one major bad experience with one faculty there is room for growth so we shall see.
So far I think it's a great school. I haven't been going there very long but from the experience that I've had so far has made me happy
I love my educational experience with Aspen University so far. All staff that I have had an opportunity to work with has been more than helpful. The courses are designed to promote success while developing a clear understanding of the coursework. I highly recommend a degree theough Aspen University.
Personally, I've not been able to communicate well with Financial Aid without first calling them after several attempts to use their email options. Second, after qualifying for over $3000 in Pell Grants, I was told I was only eligible for $800 because I was not a full-time student. While I understand this, financial aid is based on being enrolled at least half-time, not full-time. I was also told this would be retroactive and only cover items I've yet to pay for out of pocket. Staff are friendly and willing to help, but when you need real help, they are not able to help you and quote policies, leaving you without much support.
Aspen University has great flexibility for those who work full-time and need online courses to help advance their careers. However, the learning platform is very outdated, with instructors putting more of the learning in the hands of students (with the exception of few instructors). While accountability is important for online learning, when all the accountability is on the student, motivation is quite lacking to push yourself. Class sizes are a joke and team-based learning does not existent.
I am very pleased with my courses through Aspen University! The students are amazing and my advisor Jennifer is so encouraging and supportive it makes all the difference in the world!
It has been amazing. The instructors answer back quickly to many questions that you have, and they provide great feedback when needed.
I love my school. I had a little bit of trouble with my advisor at first however I feel way better now that I have a new one.
They advertise as being online and right now it is because of the virus but before that we were often on campus 3x a week. Nothing is consistent and online instruction often lacks direction
This school started out good and was promising but went downhill fast! Do not go here. The only draw is that it’s easy to get into but you get no support, no guidance and definitely NO consistency in instructors. Do not recommend!!!
