"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."

"This is a great program. The instructors really care about your success and work to ensure that true learning is taking place. The academic advisors reach out to you often to make sure you arent having any problems. I have been able to take the skills I learned in my program and directly apply them to my job."

"Aspen University was a great choice for me while working fulltime, juggling being in the Navy reserves, and raising a family, it was challenging but doable. I liked the fact that the school was flexible and the professors and advisors were supportive and helpful and reached out to me when needed. I have shared my experience with co-workers and recommended Aspen University to those who wants to advance in their profession. It feels great completing the MSN program. I can't believe my diploma is on it's way, I enjoyed going to Denver for graduation. When I do retire, I plan to use my degree to teach in nursing school at the local university."

"I received an excellent education at Aspen. The work was pertinent, the instructors were helpful and fair. I have advanced in my career and earned back more than what it cost me. I didn't take out any student loans, by using the payment plan and taking 1 class at a time. I am so pleased I decided to attend at Aspen."

"It worked for my budget and my goals. I recommend this university for anyone wanting to get an advanced degree in nursing. I am living my retirement plan of teaching nursing. Those who can do and those who are getting older must plan to teach. 250 characters."

"Faculty at Aspen University are dedicated to each students success. There were numerous times when I needed to reach out to them and they were happy to assist me in a timely manner. Making a commitment to complete my master's degree was a decision that I contemplated for awhile before I chose a school. Having the flexibility of the online format certainly helped me to achieve my goal, especially because I work full time. It was also important for me to find an institution that was affordable and Aspen University made sense financially."
