American Sentinel RN-BSN Simpath is a self taught program. No actual instruction takes place, you teach yourself. I heard "google it" more as a answer than anything else. I had one instructor begin a reply email to me with "Again" annoyed that I was asking the same questions because she did not answer it the first time. Would not recommend this place. I am not new to academia nor am I unfamiliar with online education but this program is not worth the money. It is cheap and easy to get in to for a... Read More

Degree: RN to BSN

I am a recent graduate of the RN to BSN program and enjoyed my program! I had a great admissions adviser, Amanda, whom I am sure she was sick of me by the end of my program. I got hired at a different place that gave me a nice raise and even give discounts if I go back to ASU for my MSN. Thank you American Sentinel for helping me reach my goals while still working and having a family.

Great school, the simpath program is the best. You can chose to show your work via essay, power point (my favorite) or video. I have yet to find a school that allows you to show mastery in a variety of ways, and I have researched a ton. Inexpensive and I have never had a problem getting a response from staff. The only issue I have is financial aid. Most schools allow you to start class while they work on getting aid, not this one. You have to request it months in advance which is new to me. Otherwise...

It is unbelievable the amount of work they expect from you every week. I had a big paper due and I emailed the school's writing center, the instructor and my advisor for help and not one got back to me. Other times when I did get a response the instructor didn't know the answer and told me to ask another staff member. I was reluctant to start back to school after being out for so long but the advisor assured me that I would have good support at this school. I would not recommend this school.

American Sentinel University provides great flexibility and ease. The short 8 week schedules plus the overlapping terms allow for greater ease of accomplishment. I only have praise for the professors that assisted me in accomplishing my goals. I also had my father who became critically ill during my studies and was able to get extensions in order to complete my courses without penalty. I highly recommend the school.

American Sentinel was a good fit for me, all my professors where accesssble and called me back when I needed to get clarifications. Most all my professors held PhDs or EdDs . Many tutorials were available and live conferences with the Deans at select times. They dont just take you regardless of credits as I needed 2 humanities courses extra to graduate. They are Nationally accredited and will have their Initial Regional accreditation as of 9/19 as it is a 4 year process . They also value Veterans... Read More

Took me a little over two years to complete. I worked very hard. There was a lot of essay writing. However, most higher degree programs require the ability to write essays. They want graduates to have a better understanding of pulling together evidenced-based practice and having the ability to summarize it. I found rubrics easy to understand. Like any type of higher education, the student gets what they put into it. If you want something, you have to work for it.

My brother had cancer and I asked to drop the Rn to BSN program. They have a strict policy - and allowed me to drop. However they wanted their FULL money! This is a horrible act! Their program is not good. I had many questions about classs and was told by advisors well we are new and trying to improve. So they will take your money. Offer little to no support and just say we are trying to improve. PLEASE DO NOT WASTE your time! They dont care and they just want money. I have MBA so Im not some stupid... Read More

Very helpful when trying to get you signed up. But no support after you sign promisary note. I couldn't get several of the online mandatory assignments to open so I could complete them. Contacted tech support, my counselor, instructor, no help really. Spoke with president of University about problems with accessing assignments. No help. Just told me to pay bill or it will go to collections. Oh yeah, I tried to access all my assignments on 3 different computers. The problem wasn't with me, it was... Read More

Degree: Educational Leadership

This program prepared me for an administrative position in a university nursing program. I have found the knowledge from the curriculum has provided me a very strong background in educational leadership from developing relationships with faculty members to identifying incivility in nursing education. The courses were timely and improved my leadership responses in today's nursing educational climate. Well done, ASU! I will always be grateful for the preparation I was provided to lead others in the... Read More

American Sentinel University provided the support needed to achieve the highest level of education desired. During my journey I was expected to demonstrate accountability for the decisions taken. I improved my skills as a leader and the competencies needed to understand the healthcare environment today. As a leader, I find my self in circumstances where emotions run hot, but I learned to manage these emotional charges with positive people to balance my life.

I feel compelled to write a review because I had a great experience at the school. I was able to graduate with honors and taking courses online was more attainable that having to attend a classroom. The teacher were very knowledgeable and helpful. True the school isn't regionally accredited so if going to purse a higher education in another school make sure they take Nationally accredited students. I will pursue my Nurse Practioner with American Sentinel.

Great school, TERRIBLE financial aid office

This school isn't bad but the financial aid office is awful! If you need financial aid I would recommend not going to this school they take forever and do not reply to anyone for days at a time taking multiple calls to get answers. Very uneducated people working in the office and don't seem to care about their jobs. You literally have maybe 3 people that work there that are completely unhelpful!

I am in DNP Program, and must say to all potential students DON'T GO here! The whole program is juts ridiculous, some professors dont even reply or comment your work. By the end they are screwing you up, not letting you scheduling your defense date, the chairs of the projects just people sitting home, and deciding last minute what they want to do with you, so they making fun of you by playing on your time restrains. Overall, it does not worth the money you pay, go to other reputable school, there... Read More

Many employers look into "where you git your education from". That being said they look into the schools you have attended to see if it is a quality education. Many employers are reluctant to hiring employees with online degrees. The reason is because many schools will basically give to a diploma in exchange for your money. For this reason I f you want to get a job after graduating first check the school accreditation before applying to a program. There is a difference between national and regional... Read More

DNP program is solid.The professors are knowledgeable. Feedback were timely, discussion replies from professors always incorporated real life situations that contributed tremendously to my learning. Kudos to Dr. Pate and all faculty. The first year (2013) the assigned academic counselor was not as engaged. Didn't return phone calls which caused a lot of anxiety on my part however, my second year the new academic counselors were excellent. Kudos Julie!!!! PLE's I think are really great.... more work...

This school is a joke. It's the worst program anyone can attend. I'm ashamed and embarrassed to have graduated from here. Do NOT get a degree from here. The program is pathetic and my knowledge does not compare to any of my colleagues that got a real DNP.

I have been a ADN nurse for 7 years and working mostly an overtime schedule with a 1 and 2 year old, this university has been comparable to my busy life. When signing up the process is smooth.
