Not a good value if you aren’t independently wealthy and are hoping to be able to pay back student loans. The ND program in particular prepares you to be self employed but there is no business training and job prospects are poor. If you want this career, go get your NP or PA credentials and then study functional medicine. Then you are employable and if you want to build your business you can do so while getting a salary with benefits.

Bastyr University gave me the most incredible education! The professors made sure that as graduates would be able to go out into the world and be able to use our BS, or we were completely prepared to take the next step and enter into a Master's Program.

That being said the curriculum was incredibly tough as most of our professors taught on the Undergraduate level, Graduate level and many of the professors taught the Naturopathic Doctors program as well. So their standards set high for the Bachelor's programs!
Bastyr resides on a pristine campus. Serenity and strength aromatherapy must be piped into the building through the air vents, because the environment is inducing of focused study, mental clarity and assurance of self worth.
I love it here. The professors challenge yet are amazingly supportive, while ranking at the top of thier fields in credential.
I think it is worth the money, or i wouldn't be enrolled. But, my experience in the program is constantly building my confidence. nu
