"This was my first time doing an online program. I will say that I am quite surprised that the program overall was relatively fast. This program took a little less than two years with a full time job as a CCRN. I did Masters of Nursing with a specialty in informatics. Worth it 100%. Pros: The professors were all great and reasonable! Granted I slacked on some of the assignments and got a B, but it I still graduated with honors. Price is key! A school that is CCNE verified and well under $15,000 for the whole program did it for me. Cons: Finding your own preceptor. Despite finding your own preceptor, the experience made it worth while because it helped in the capstone project."

"I enjoyed taking courses and the Master's of Nursing program. I have learned a lot in each course and found the professors attentive and professional. I work full time and found it easy to fit one course at a time into my schedule. The open enrollment process with courses starting every two weeks worked well. The majority of the courses had their assignments posted for the entire session, allowing me to start the next week's assignment if I knew personal obligations would affect the time needed to devote to the class. I have told others of your program and will continue to do so."

"I would highly recommend it. One can take the class at your own pace. I learned a lot that will help in the enhancement of both one’s professional and personal growth. The writing and critical thinking skills will improve a lot. If you are a person who likes to do research work, Aspen University is the right place. Thank you."

"Aspen University helped me accomplish a life goal. I was both able to afford the tuition and study at my own pace thanks to the online format. The instructors were excellent, teaching not only course content but scholarly writing as well. I work full-time and am raising a grand-daughter, so the flexibility was a considerable draw. I am happy to report two of my peers are now attending Aspen University. I highly recommend and hope to continue my studies at Aspen."

"My decision to go back to school since graduating from nursing school 19 years ago was daunting. But the academic advisors, the professors and my family give me the support I needed to complete this journey. However, I will say if you don’t like writing essays or is not willing to sacrifice hours to commit to your school work, then please reconsider. Obtaining a MSN is both challenging and rewarding. Through this process I a became professional nurse."

"Aspen University has been a great experience so far. All of my professors have doctoral degrees and are easy to communicate with via email. The curriculum is clearly presented as are the expectations. I can easily get answers from my mentor, who has always been available when I call Aspen directly; on issues regarding payments, retrieving past papers, how to utilize the resources available in the library, etc. This program is not for someone that is hoping to get an easy degree without putting in the time and work required. Yes, you write a lot of APA papers, but this is not necessarily a bad thing as you will need to know what what you are doing when you start grading your own student's APA papers someday!"

"I have been a student at Aspen University for the last four years. My first degree was a bachelors in nursing. I have now just completed my Masters. The instructors were knowledgeable and always willing to help in anyway. I would highly recommend Aspen University if you want to pursue higher education at your own pace and in the comfort of your own home. Wonderful nursing program!"

"Great flexibility of course start dates that truly allows the student working full-time to take a break when needed. Instructors were all responsive to questions asked - and were timely with their answers. The schoolwork in each class does keep you busy, but it is definitely manageable even when working a full time job. The staff and leadership team were committed to ensure I completed my studies, and I am grateful that I had chosen to go with Aspen University."

"I loved just about everything at Aspen. My Academic Adviser became one of my friends as they were someone I talked to the most during the whole program. The only department I had trouble with is the registrar's office. Getting a call back from them is impossible and when they did reply to my emails, the information was wrong or not helpful. The worst was when it came to my proctored exam. Thankfully my adviser was able to make sense of everything and help me out. But the education, advisory, professors are all top notch!"

"I was a little hesitant about starting a Master's degree because of the costs involved, but Aspen University offers a monthly payment plan that made the financial aspect manageable. That was the initial selling point. However, as I moved through the courses in the MSN program, I was impressed with the quality of work expected and challenged by my instructors to think critically and deeply analyze each question posed. I was able to apply what I learned throughout the program to my work and began to think and look at things differently. I would highly recommend Aspen's MSN program to any nurse looking to advance his or her education. Although it was more challenging at times than others, it is a journey I am glad to have taken."
