"At 58 years old, I was able to complete my Bachelor's Degree in Nursing. It took two years, and there were definitely many, many late nights writing papers, but in the end it was definitely worth it. Can not disagree more with those who have negative comments. Life, as well as education, is only dictated by the desire to improve yourself. Congratulations to all of you who have successfully completed a degree at Aspen University."

"This school is a complete joke. Take my advice and DO NOT ago here. I’m learning nursing from YouTube and paying 45k for it. I repeat, DO NOT GO HERE. Every other school is back in hospitals/in person except Aspen. DO NOT GO HERE. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY."

"Aspen fundamentally changed how to approach learning, for the better. The BSN program was organized and challenging. One class that stood out was Genetics/Genomics-A+++. Thank you Aspen University for educating students and perpetuating growth in the various fields of study."

"I put off my BSN for 14 years. I was scared to DEATH of starting. It took me a few days to fully understand how the on-line classroom worked but I quickly called my student advisor and all of my fears/questions were resolved. I worked full time (4 days week, 12h shifts) as a clinical supervisor in a busy ER and had no trouble being successful! I graduated with a 4.0 GPA and completed in one year. I have recommended several friends who are doing great, too! Do it! Don't put it off. The comprehensive final is VERY manageable."

"I will graduate with Summa Cum Laude honors. I obtained my RN to BSN. It was not easy, but it if you set aside time to do your reading and research you will succeed. Follow the rubric and assignment content material. Be patient with yourself. Do not allow yourself any excuses. Take a break when you need to, and I suggest you schedule it in as a necessity. If you can not figure out something YouTube or Ted Talks are great references to utilize for people like myself who learn by listening. I, often, listened to a topic while walking my dog in the mornings. The professors are great in helping, you have to ask! During the courses I would communicate with my professors and simply tag a note about my week when I submitted my papers. It made it seem less disconnected and more like they could get to know me as a student. If we were in a brick and mortar school they would know me, right? You, would and will learn a little about them, too. My last professor, S. Kalb, was so compassionate in regards to my father's passing and my need to be with my family. He guided me through the extension process, answered my emails, texts, and extended his compassion/empathy towards myself and my family. This is my experience with Aspen University. It can be yours too."

"I like that the assignments are done on your own time, yet there are weekly deadlines to prevent students from becoming procrastinators. You can see all of the assignments so you can work ahead if you like. I like the fact that you can register for classes on your own time and take more than one class if that works for you. I was totally able to work full-time, take 2-3 classes at a time, and manage a busy household! Definitely recommend!"

"I very much enjoyed taking all my courses in Aspen University. I had this idea that getting your bachelors in nursing would be so difficult but it actually was not as bad as I thought. All my professors were great and helpful. I have nothing but positive things to say about this journey. Thank you!"

"Thanks to Aspen's online program, I was able to complete my degree on my time, while tending to a busy family and work my usual hours at the hospital. As an ER nurse, with years of experience, I added my bachelor's degree to my resume and applied for ICU jobs online. I applied for three ICU positions on a weekend. By the end of that week, I had completed interviews, and even had a strong offer by Friday of the same week I applied. I had 2nd and 3rd interviews scheduled the following week; and by the end of the second week, I had completed multiple interviews with 3 hospitals, and had 3 strong offers for employment. I have the position I wanted, with an award-winning organization, control of the hours I work, and improved wages. I practice my skill set with a high level of autonomy and respect of physicians and mid-level providers who work by my side."

"I am only satisfied in that I graduated and became a nurse but it was not through great instruction from the school. Anyone thinking of going here needs to consider what they are getting into. They make it sound all wonderful and how supportive they are....all lies. They lie to you every step of the way, do crap to help you and instead blow you off. They love to change rules depending on how it fits them and yet the students are expected to just do it even if it doesn't follow protocol. You basically learn on your own, get no help, no direction mainly because the professors don't know either. There are a couple of good instructors there but they are adjunct. The full time (with exception of one) are horrible...they will not work with you if you experience a problem but will fail you in a second. Extremely unprofessional, charge for classes you don't need and do not add to learning but sure put 200% I. When it gets close to graduation because they are so worried about their NCLEX pass rate but could care less in the previous 18 months. You may have to wait longer but if you want a quality education....don't go here!!!"

"Aspen is a great place to attend online education while working and living life. The academic layout is conducive to a positive work-life-education balance. It is 100% online and the academic advisors are always there to help. Payment plan is also easy and affordable."

"I am writing this in the hopes that no working nurse will attend this school. This school is not practical for a working nurse and if you have a family do not even look at this school. I have learned absolutely nothing and the course work is ridiculously time consuming. It is all busy work. Please nurses save yourself the headache and do not attend this school. I am an A student and have throughout all of the courses but at the cost of my family who I have had to neglect in order to satisfy the course requirements."

"Aspen has been a great experience for me. I gained knowledge about nursing concepts and theories that I have been able to apply in my current practice. The instructors were there when I needed them and my counselor was always a phone call away. The tuition was affordable and I didn’t feel rushed to complete assignments since the guidelines for due dates were clear. I enrolled in one class a semester and was still able to complete my program in in under two years."

"I had a great experience at Aspen. The program is affordable, staff are responsive, and assignments are clearly defined. It did not require any group assignments, which I appreciate, since every individual's schedule is different. I would recommend the program for anyone looking for flexible and affordable options."

"Aspen’s BSN program was rigorous, but achievable as a working mom. Professors are helpful and supportive. I also appreciated the monthly payment program which made my degree affordable. I was intent on earning my BSN for career progression, and was recently promoted. I have recommended this program to several colleagues."

"I am about to finish my BSN at Aspen. I have taken online classes at other universities, but I felt that Aspen does a better job. Each class is set up into doable modules which you work through one week at a time. There is a lot of material to work through though, so it does take work. Do not think that you can coast through the program because each class has discussions and some sort of major assignment such as a paper or Powerpoint presentation that will need to be done on a weekly basis. In nursing it has become increasingly important to have a bachelors degree, so I am glad that I chose this program. I expect that it is more work than attending a local school, it offers much more flexibility. Financially they have a monthly payment plan which I like, they were cheaper than other school that I considered, and they made an effort to reduce the financial burden of the degree. For example, they supplied me with even lower cost alternatives for completing credits. I already had a fair number of credits, so to get my degree I will need to finish 10 classes and then take the final examine. I am almost done, and I have been pleased with the experience."

"Aspen University from day one was the perfect fit for me while working and going to school full-time. The advisors and all of the academic staff displayed professional attitudes. I was extremely nervous about this educational pursuit due to the fact that I had been out of school for well over 20 years. I had 10 classes to complete for my BSN. Each time I reached out to the professors for guidance I was amazed at how quickly I received feedback. I truly did not expect this type of assistance from on-line learning. At times the weeks were very challenging but I always felt the support of the instructors when needed. If you are looking for an on-line nursing program that will challenge you, while increasing your professional views and knowledge in the nursing environment, then Aspen University is for you. This comes with caring, knowledgeable and professional instructors that will hold you accountable for learning and expressing nursing in words, and yes that is at Aspen University. After completing all of my classes and starting the prep work for my proctored exam, I was assisted by the professional staff at the testing center at once again, Aspen University. I am so proud to be a graduate of Aspen University."

"Aspen University is a fantastic school! I just graduated with my BSN and I couldn't be happier. If you want an easy degree, Aspen is not for you. Plan on spending a lot of time researching and writing but by the time I got done with my second class, I was pretty used to it. All of my instructors answered my questions in less than 24 hours and I LOVED my Academic Adviser. I have told a lot of my co-workers about Aspen and they will be graduating in 2021. I can't wait for the ceremony in May."
