"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 University provided me with a well-rounded program. The classes and assignments challenged me and added to my nursing knowledge. I truly enjoyed the flexibility of the 8 week long courses. I will recommend Aspen to anyone working full time and seeking higher education."

"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."

"Writing intensive, but worth the time. The instructors are helpful with navigating the process and the enrollment options are really helpful to someone with a full-time job and family. Definitely recommend this school if you are looking to work at your own pace and progress your career!"

"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."

"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."

"Aspen is awesome! The Professors and Advisors are so helpful and nice. You can work at your own pace as long as you meet your deadlines. The best part is the price. Their mission is to offer affordable tuition to everyone. I'm so proud to be an Aspen graduate."
