    RN-MSN program at Aspen University

    hello babynurse73, I am also a student at Aspen University and could not be happier. Everyone I have been in contact with is supportive. I will have an MSN as a nursing educator and I will not be in debt up to my ears. The courses are interesting, challenging, and manageable. This is an awesome choice for my higher education.

    Hi Quiet 1, Glad to hear you are joining the group. I am sure you will like it. Be sure to identify yourself when you get to the discussion board. Welcome.
  3. Is the BSN ULTIMATELY going to make a difference when the end reselt is the MSN. Will you be able tomake the same amount of money while you have your BSN that you will spend getting the BSN? WGU wants you to think they have a better course but when education is so expensive do the dollars and cents add up?
  4. I am a student at Aspen and I must say it is a great program. It is mostly found from word of mouth. They do not advertise so to keep their costs down for the students. I was involved in the recent re-accredidation process and the reviewers were impressed not only with the caliber of students but the program as a whole. Aspen makes higher nursing education attainable without putting the student in the poor house.
  5. I am enrolled at Aspen and could not be happier! It is a great choice and I am not going to go broke getting my Masters. Check it out! They walk like they talk.

    I use Style Ease for APA 6th edition. There is no perfect program out there but this helps. You should get the APA book they recommend and Fionda the Bridge instructor has created a great site that offers a lot of help. You are going to do great don't worry.

    The CCNE interview consisted of approx 10 students we were all on a telephone conference call with 2-3 members of the credentialing committee. They had many questions for us about our experience at Aspen. What was reassuring for me was that everyone felt the same way I did. Everyone had positive comments. Another thing that I came to realize was that I was in a group of top notch professionals. No one was arrogant everyone had a mutual respect for each others background. It was cool. What an experience. I do not think that that would have happened elsewhere.

    This is a relatively new nursing program but the dean has many years of educational experience. Aspen has years of online educaational experience the nursing program is just a new extension of that. I am enjoying being one of the front runners. They value my imput. I have a strong sense of ownership in the program. I have value there and it is not related to my tuition. The CNCC came through recently and I was on the interview panel and the were impressed. Do not be afraid of APA it is their job to guide you. That is the whole point of going to school. If you already knew how there would be no point to higher education. I use Style Ease for 6.0 APA but still check with the APA publication. I am starting into my third course in the BSN portion and I have had good support along the way. I know that I will be able to look back and have a feeling of pride that I was here in the beginning. I buy my book online from Barnes and Nobel I belong to their program and get a great discount and they are delivered right to my door. I know that programs like University of Phoenix you have to purchase their books and they cost a fortune.

    The tuition must be paid up front to get the $100.00 per cerdit. The first part about $2100.00 for the BSN portion and the rest is due when you start the MSN portion. Total cost for the complete RN to MSN is around $7,000.00 the is very inexpensive. They are everything they advertise and more. I hope to see you in the classroon.

    Aspen is so inexpensive because they choose not to advertise. This keeps their overhead down. Honestly as a student there I have no complaints this is a fantastic institution.

    i agree with nizhoni. i am not employed by aspen. i am a student that is just having a fantastic experience. i was initially terrified about returning to school after so many years but they have taken thaat fear away and also made it affordable. the have the same accreditation the the major universities in my area have. their tuition is in the neighborhood of $45,000.00. i am even using some of the same books. no contest!
