Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

Indiana State University has an excellent RN to BSN program academically . I had always felt that I was a mediocre writer at best. After completing ISU's nursing program I felt that my writing skills had improved immensely. I also have a better understanding of APA format. The discussion board posting assignments allow students to interact and give constructive feed back. These assignments help alleviate the disconnected feeling you can sometimes get while completing an on-line program. This program focuses heavily on community health nursing which I found challenging at times because I did not have a community health nursing background. If you are not from Indiana, I would suggest doing some research on where you can complete your clinical hours. Most hospitals require a contract with ISU in order for you to complete your clinical hours in their facility. I found that hospitals did not want to have a contract with ISU for just one student. Unfortunately ISU will not help you find your preceptors or places that will accept a contract with them. I lucked out and knew someone that was a director at a hospital and she pulled some strings for me. If you cannot find a place to complete your hours that is approved by your instructor, this can prevent you from graduating. The classes were excellent, but unfortunately the fact that ISU does not help you find clinical sites to complete your BSN degree would make me recommend this school with a disclaimer attached.

Degree: Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2017

I love Indiana State University and highly recommend ISU to anyone looking to further their education. The curriculum has been challenging and the faculty is extremely professional and helpful. I completed a large portion of the degree online and the ability to watch lectures and complete the same course work of in class students has been a blessing!

Degree: Criminology
Graduation Year: 2012

I really enjoyed most everything about attending ISU online. The only issue I had was with financial aid. It was a little bit difficult to get the information I needed. Other than that I learned a lot through the online classes and it helped me grow as a person.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

Having gone through my early education on campus, I was a little reserved about attending classes online. I was worried the quality of the classes offered wouldn't compare to classes on campus. I was pleasantly surprised to find the instructors accessible, the classes challenging, and the ease of enrolling and accessing material high. I was gladly refer anyone seeking a flexible school curriculum to Indiana State University.

Degree: Nursing Education
Graduation Year: 2014

I love ISU. The teachers are great. They really treat me like an individual. The quality of the education is very high. I can't say anything bad about the school EXCEPT that they want me to do 210 clinical hours to complete the RN to BSN program. Many programs like this require little to NO clinical time. I feel this is excessive.

Indiana State employs a Blended Learning approach, combining independent study with online courses which allowed me to complete the courses on my own time. Already having a full time job make this approach perfect for me. The online classes were intuitive and challenging. Using their full compliment of online tools, I was able to speak with my fellow students and faculty in real time. My BSN certification allowed me to move up more quickly, and receive higher pay, faster than I ever imagined.

I have been enrolled in this program for four years and now in the process of completing the dissertation. I can't express how pleased I am with the course content, teaching style (for most of the professors, not all) and philosophy of program delivery.

This is a great value and I am definitely the better for the experience, plus, I've been able to keep my job while finishing the degree. It is *not* easy, but I wouldn't want it to be. Of course I don't think it's as hard as an MIT or equivalent, but it is certainly a life changing experience and one that is very positive.

The worst part of the program is the early guidance and administrative support. You are expected to "figure out" a lot of the logistics, which is not possible in many cases. As a result you end up relying on current and former students who know the ropes a little better... in the end, this is actually a good thing, but very frustrating as you're going through it.
