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.
This program prepared me for an administrative position in a university nursing program. I have found the knowledge from the curriculum has provided me a very strong background in educational leadership from developing relationships with faculty members to identifying incivility in nursing education. The courses were timely and improved my leadership responses in today's nursing educational climate. Well done, ASU! I will always be grateful for the preparation I was provided to lead others in the professional practice of nursing education.
American Sentinel University provided the support needed to achieve the highest level of education desired. During my journey I was expected to demonstrate accountability for the decisions taken. I improved my skills as a leader and the competencies needed to understand the healthcare environment today. As a leader, I find my self in circumstances where emotions run hot, but I learned to manage these emotional charges with positive people to balance my life.
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.
This school isn't bad but the financial aid office is awful! If you need financial aid I would recommend not going to this school they take forever and do not reply to anyone for days at a time taking multiple calls to get answers. Very uneducated people working in the office and don't seem to care about their jobs. You literally have maybe 3 people that work there that are completely unhelpful!
I am in DNP Program, and must say to all potential students DON'T GO here! The whole program is juts ridiculous, some professors dont even reply or comment your work. By the end they are screwing you up, not letting you scheduling your defense date, the chairs of the projects just people sitting home, and deciding last minute what they want to do with you, so they making fun of you by playing on your time restrains. Overall, it does not worth the money you pay, go to other reputable school, there are plenty now offering DNP. I wish I would go somewhere else.
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.
DNP program is solid.The professors are knowledgeable. Feedback were timely, discussion replies from professors always incorporated real life situations that contributed tremendously to my learning. Kudos to Dr. Pate and all faculty. The first year (2013) the assigned academic counselor was not as engaged. Didn't return phone calls which caused a lot of anxiety on my part however, my second year the new academic counselors were excellent. Kudos Julie!!!! PLE's I think are really great.... more work to do on top of required readings and weekly paper and discussions to submit. But, who says nursing is cake walk....let alone doctoral studies? I say, the DNP program is rigorous and I highly recommend.
This school is a joke. It's the worst program anyone can attend. I'm ashamed and embarrassed to have graduated from here. Do NOT get a degree from here. The program is pathetic and my knowledge does not compare to any of my colleagues that got a real DNP.
