American Sentinel University Reviews - Bachelor's in RN to BSN
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.
I feel compelled to write a review because I had a great experience at the school. I was able to graduate with honors and taking courses online was more attainable that having to attend a classroom. The teacher were very knowledgeable and helpful. True the school isn't regionally accredited so if going to purse a higher education in another school make sure they take Nationally accredited students. I will pursue my Nurse Practioner with American Sentinel.
I had no idea the credits from my BSN received at this school would be rejected by other schools pursuing my MSN Degree. This school is accredited but NOT Regionally accredited which is necessary for transferring to other schools. DON'T WASTE VALUABLE TIME!
Many employers look into "where you git your education from". That being said they look into the schools you have attended to see if it is a quality education. Many employers are reluctant to hiring employees with online degrees. The reason is because many schools will basically give to a diploma in exchange for your money. For this reason I f you want to get a job after graduating first check the school accreditation before applying to a program. There is a difference between national and regional accreditation. American sentinel university is nationally accredited but NOT regionally accredited. Most employers look for employees who have earned a degree from a regional accredited institution. Make sure you know the difference between national and regional accreditation. Otherwise you will end up with a useless degree thatbyou paid thousands for.
I have had difficulty finding a university to accept credits from ASU. ASU does not have regional accreditation, only national for the BSN and MSN programs. Most universities want transfer courses to come from a regional and national accredited school. My experience with instructors was mostly positive. Instructors were fair and gave quick feedback on assignments. The workload of assignments and projects were reasonable.
