    I withdrew...way too much of a time committment for me right now...have kids, job and don't want to spend all my spare time researching and writing papers. So, I got an A in the first course then re-evaluated my priorities. I'm attending Ohio Univ online for my BSN. I liked Aspen just fine but it's not the right time in my life. Thanks for checking in!
    I started Tuesday, I am thinking of withdrawing. I find alot of the stuff they teach I am just not interested in. Concept Analysis? I could care less. I think a real class room would liven it up, but Aspen is not that kind of school. They suggest you spend about 20 hours per week on each module. Unless you are going for the NP, an MSN is not really going to do that much for you.

    I was bored to tears with the content...and it required so much time to do a thorough job. I think it's probably a good program if you're into the material...I was not. Getting my BSN then maybe NP. Aspen would've taken me 3 years...ugh. Good luck with figuring things out. Are you interested in an NP program?

    I thought the interactive content was downright boring. I have done an online BSN, and MSLS through Clarion University; both programs were great. For me to spend hours studying stuff that I will never use, is pointless. I would much rather spend my educational dollars and time at UCSD extension. I plan on taking a few of their certificate programs such as Java, and maybe C. I am working towards a Biostatistics certificate right now, short two classes.

    No, but if I were, I would check out Clarion University's program at West Penn. I think if I were younger, I would be, but alas I am 55, and would prefer to work as a Systems Analyst/ Nursing Informatician for the rest of my days.

    No clinicals at Aspen, but they don't offer an NP, but there are Capstone courses. For an NP you will need clinicals.

    I was just curious as to your long term goals. I'm 50 and it's new the 30 as far as I'm concerned! Good luck to you.

    Hello, just trying to get some feedback about your experience with Aspen. I'm still skeptical but they have the best tuition rate in town besides being accredited program. Any information about your online experience and info about their modules is greatly appreciated. thanks.

    I liked the sound of Aspen also and tuition etc, but my place of work who does give partial tuition reimbursement will only give it if the school is regionally accredited, which Aspen is not. That is what is holding me up with this school

    I see that Aspen has an admission requirement of having worked as a nurse for one full year. Does anyone know if this is strictly enforced? I've only been working as a nurse for about four months but I would like to start an RN-MSN program early next year.

    I couldn't say for sure but I can say that when I dealt with them they were extremely helpful. It might make a difference if you continue to work and accrue experience while attending...explain your situation and your strong desire to start a program. It's worth a call. I found them to be straight forward and easy to deal with. Give 'em a call! Best of luck!

    I am trying to figure out if Aspen is accredited? Is a national accreditation regulatory board for Schools of Nursing? I have experience I need that piece of paper.

    Thank you
