"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."

"I am currently completing my BSN in nursing. I felt compelled to write a review as I really feel American Sentinel online program has surpassed my past experiences with other universities. I have been a ADN nurse for 7 years and working mostly an overtime schedule with a 1 and 2 year old, this university has been comparable to my busy life. When signing up the process is smooth. Tramaine (admission advisor), was the friendliness, most informative person I initially spoke with. I was given a couple different success advisors initially but finally have been with one, Jacqui, for a good amount of time. She has assisted me whenever I need it. She responds so quickly to her emails and makes you feel as though you are "on campus", she provides many good options and priceless guidance during the program. The 8 week classes are great, the instructors are compassionate in their education and I actually feel I am learning tools that have and will be utilized in my career. The price is comparable to standard BSN programs but really provide top dollar education. I can't say enough about this program, I am so happy I chose American Sentinel and will have acquired my degree very soon. From, A full-time OR RN a mother of 2 under 2, wife, and newly inducted Dean's List student!"

"American Sentinel's RN to BSN program, like most high caliber nursing programs, requires many hours of reading, research, writing discussions and assignments, power point presentations, voice thread technology, and knowledge of virtual patient and hospital situations. I had been out of school over 20 years and felt very anxious about returning to a world where new technologically-oriented teaching methods were mandatory. With the help of my husband to guide me with the technical aspect, I made It! The nursing instructors were very understanding about adults working full time and trying to get through school. I feel I received a quality education and learned many different aspects of nursing besides bedside care. Another positive about out American Sentinel was their tuition was far more affordable than most others. My nursing instructors were helpful and always ready to give you a second chance, providing you had proved yourself. If you really want your BSN, you can do it! Just know up front that you will put your life on hold for the next 18 months!"

"I was very satisfied with the online class work, The advisors and the school in general. I was able to complete my BSN online and didn't have to worry about additional test or clinicals. I was able to use my time more effectively than having to attend a classroom setting."

"This schools credits are not transferable, anywhere. The course load was ridiculous for 3 credits. The quality of my professors went from excellent (first course) to pathetically poor. I was advised to skip the readings and discussions and just work on my final project. Try straighter edge (for pre-reqs)!"

"I wish the advisors and admissions staff would've explained that this school is only nationally accredited. I wanted to pursue my MSN-Family Nurse Practitioner and was turned down by every college because this school is not regionally accredited. What a waste and certain states do not recognize a BSN from this school. I am finding this out now. Please do your research!"

"I found American Sentinel University to be the best work/life balance school out there. I worked full time 12 hour shift, while taking one class at a time. You can take two if you choose. If you are the spouse of an active military or veteran, you get a discount from charge. I would recommend this school to any RN looking for a good BSN, MSN, or DNP Program. Did I mentioned it's reasonable price, with excellent payment plan. I completed my BSN without owing a dime. A close friend of mine chose another school because she wanted a live in person teaching once a week. That's great, but after completing her BSN, she still owed $19,000."
