Yes I am in the pre-licensure BSN. I hear if you do well in clinicals, hospitals may pick you for your last round of clinicals and hire you. I’m new to the field. Is it if you perform well within clinicals you succeed?  I appreciate all your guidance by the way, you’ve been very helpful

That's generally how it works, when you stuffed and if you do a good job, the facility that you precept at will generally just offer you a job. And they consider your preceptorship part of your training even though you'll still get training on top of that. So I mean it's a good idea to looking to do your best and it just want you to know and go from there. It's not necessarily if you perform well, it's if you understand the information. And if you don't understand the information, didn't ask for help. There are always going to be people who are willing to help you. Yw. You can message me if you need further help any time :)

Hello. Does anyone know if a master's degree from Aspen University could work toward/lead to becoming a nurse practitioner or similar field? I understand that the school lacks regional accreditation. All replies appreciated.

Mike, I have been doing research on Aspen university.The school has national accredited,  CCNE, distance learning online accredited.It is not a regional accredited;however, Aspen has nursing degree to DNP.If you want to pursuit NP, Aspen has sister school with NP Program and it will accept your credits from Aspen.The difference between regional and national is regional only accept transfer credits from regional accredited school.As a nurse, I find out that Aspen truly teach nursing that applied to work place.I look at dozen nursing school for RN- BSN and RN-MSN, I decided to choose Aspen.I do not need more degree to earn money but I love learning and also Aspen is suitable to my budget. I will attend Aspen, in a process to have my transcript sent to Aspen.

speThe classes are 8 weeks long and I believe it is 10 classes to graduate. There is a lot of paper writing and with 8 week classes can be intense but I am loving the program. Aspen is very affordable and the $250 a month payment option is great. Everyone at Aspen has been very helpful. Glad I chose Aspen for my BSN.

Hi, each student has academic advisor to help you all the way? What's about enrollment advisor? Thank you.

I had looked into Aspen a little while ago for their masters program. They were one of the only schools in North America I found that offered a masters with a forensic specialty in nursing. Additionally, they were the ONLY school in the USA I could find that would accept my Canadian nursing license and not make me register my license in the USA (I did my license before Canada adopted the NCLEX, so I would have to re-write which was a no no for me).

The reviews are generally positive from students. I am not really sure how well recieved a degree from Aspen is. In Canada, if you are a nurse with a masters, it is generally expected that you have done it at some offshore US or Australian school online and no one really cares about the quality or reputation of the school. They just care that you have the piece of paper that says you have a masters.

I am not sure about how well received it would be in the USA and for a BSN (which would be your foundational degree to nursing practice, unlike a masters which is just supplementary and more a novelty for nurses, IMO).

I ended up going to a Canadian school after all. It was cheaper but required more of a time investment than Aspen would have. I think in general it would be a good choice. They were helpful for me when I was on the fence about applying and they also have an enticing tuition payment program where you just make installment payments instead of paying the full amount in one lump sum. It is also accredited. Therefore, I think it would be a safe choice!

My 2 cents.

Is the MSN - Health education recognized in Canada? Or is any of the masters of nursing programs recognized in Canada?

Im not sure how it works since the university is based in the US

Hi I am looking into Aspen university and I have a couple questions.. Is the program self paced? How long does it usually take to graduate taking one class at a time? Are there tests or is it mostly just writing papers? Thanks for the info!
