"American Sentinel RN-BSN Simpath is a self taught program. No actual instruction takes place, you teach yourself. I heard "google it" more as a answer than anything else. I had one instructor begin a reply email to me with "Again" annoyed that I was asking the same questions because she did not answer it the first time. Would not recommend this place. I am not new to academia nor am I unfamiliar with online education but this program is not worth the money. It is cheap and easy to get in to for a reason."

"I am a recent graduate of the RN to BSN program and enjoyed my program! I had a great admissions adviser, Amanda, whom I am sure she was sick of me by the end of my program. I got hired at a different place that gave me a nice raise and even give discounts if I go back to ASU for my MSN. Thank you American Sentinel for helping me reach my goals while still working and having a family."

"Great school, the simpath program is the best. You can chose to show your work via essay, power point (my favorite) or video. I have yet to find a school that allows you to show mastery in a variety of ways, and I have researched a ton. Inexpensive and I have never had a problem getting a response from staff. The only issue I have is financial aid. Most schools allow you to start class while they work on getting aid, not this one. You have to request it months in advance which is new to me. Otherwise great school to quickly get your BSN degree in 8 months or less."

"It is unbelievable the amount of work they expect from you every week. I had a big paper due and I emailed the school's writing center, the instructor and my advisor for help and not one got back to me. Other times when I did get a response the instructor didn't know the answer and told me to ask another staff member. I was reluctant to start back to school after being out for so long but the advisor assured me that I would have good support at this school. I would not recommend this school."

"American Sentinel University provides great flexibility and ease. The short 8 week schedules plus the overlapping terms allow for greater ease of accomplishment. I only have praise for the professors that assisted me in accomplishing my goals. I also had my father who became critically ill during my studies and was able to get extensions in order to complete my courses without penalty. I highly recommend the school."

"American Sentinel was a good fit for me, all my professors where accesssble and called me back when I needed to get clarifications. Most all my professors held PhDs or EdDs . Many tutorials were available and live conferences with the Deans at select times. They dont just take you regardless of credits as I needed 2 humanities courses extra to graduate. They are Nationally accredited and will have their Initial Regional accreditation as of 9/19 as it is a 4 year process . They also value Veterans as they give them lower tuition costs."

"Took me a little over two years to complete. I worked very hard. There was a lot of essay writing. However, most higher degree programs require the ability to write essays. They want graduates to have a better understanding of pulling together evidenced-based practice and having the ability to summarize it. I found rubrics easy to understand. Like any type of higher education, the student gets what they put into it. If you want something, you have to work for it."

"My brother had cancer and I asked to drop the Rn to BSN program. They have a strict policy - and allowed me to drop. However they wanted their FULL money! This is a horrible act! Their program is not good. I had many questions about classs and was told by advisors well we are new and trying to improve. So they will take your money. Offer little to no support and just say we are trying to improve. PLEASE DO NOT WASTE your time! They dont care and they just want money. I have MBA so Im not some stupid young person who they try to prey on"

"Very helpful when trying to get you signed up. But no support after you sign promisary note. I couldn't get several of the online mandatory assignments to open so I could complete them. Contacted tech support, my counselor, instructor, no help really. Spoke with president of University about problems with accessing assignments. No help. Just told me to pay bill or it will go to collections. Oh yeah, I tried to access all my assignments on 3 different computers. The problem wasn't with me, it was their programs and lack of support. Be warned."
