Has anyone have any information on American Sentinel University's nursing program?
I am Jim K and I graduated from American Sentinel University's Master of Science in Nursing education program on November 30, 2010, Summa Cum Laude.
American Sentinel University (ASU) offers the RN to BSN, RN to MSN, and the BSN to MSN with 5 specialty concentrations (management and organizational leadership, education, case management, nursing informatics, and infection prevention and control).
I truly enjoyed my studies and because ASU's nursing programs are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) and the Distance Education and Training Council a U.S. Department of education approved accreditind agency. The CCNE accreditation provided a type of additional quality assurance for me and because of this assurance I had no trouble when I applied to a post-master's clinical nurse specialist and a Doctorate in Nursing Practice (DNP) program from other CCNE accredited schools.
The courses are designed to be completed in a eight (8) week format. The MSN student is required to submit a weekly assignment and to submit a response to a discussion board posting. The MSN program is challenging, yet rewarding. I received a great education that has equipped me with the needed skills and/or tools to go into the for-profit or non-profit nursing classroom and help the perspective nursing students meet his or her goals of becoming a future LPN/LVN or RN. I started my program in March 2009 and completed the program on November 30, 2010, while working full-time. And to prove that I am a real person, I have provided a link to the schools announcement section, as I was selected as student of the month for October 2010. I have recently received several offers to teach asynchronous and synchronous nursing courses and have accepted one of the offers.

The admissions and financial aid process was easy and well laid out. No obstacles or high pressure tactics from staff. I have had ten (10) fantastic, yet fair instructors/professor and one bad professor that no longer teaches at the school. ASU values the input of its students and goes out of their way to find ways to improve student satisfaction, while increasing the quality of the education that each student receives.
Please feel free to contact me by phone or private massage/email to address additional concerns on the ASU master's level nursing degree program.
