It is a great program. Relatively new, but the dean has a lot of experience and has a great listening ear. I find the courses challenging but are easily accomplished in the ten weeks. You can go at your own pace and complete them sooner if you want. RN-MSN is typically 3 years but again, can be completed sooner. It is very affordable and I ave absolutely no complaints. I am taking one course at a time because my work schedule is crazy busy and I do not want to put unnecessary stress in my life. I highly recommend you check out this school. I looked at many others before I chose Aspen. They keep their overhead down so they can keep the cost down for the students. I am using many of the same textbooks that the local university is using. I will have my MSN and not be buried in debt!
