Aspen University is dedicated to offering any motivated college-worthy student the opportunity to receive a high quality, responsibly priced distance-learning education for the purpose of achieving sustainable economic and social benefits for themselves and their families.
The mission of the Aspen University School of Nursing is to enhance the health and quality of life for individuals, families, and communities at local, state, and national levels through excellence in teaching, scholarship and practice. The RN-to-BSN program builds upon previous learning, and prepares nurses for a higher level of nursing practice, allowing them to advance their nursing careers. By developing stronger clinical reasoning and analytical skills, BSN-prepared nurses can assume roles as care providers; as designers, managers, and coordinators of care; and as members of a profession within a diverse society and across a spectrum of healthcare settings.
Aspen University is accredited by the Accrediting Commission of the Distance Education Accrediting Commission (DEAC). DEAC is listed by the U.S. Department of Education as a nationally recognized accrediting agency, and is a recognized member of the Council for Higher Education Accreditation.

All courses in the RN-to-BSN program are completed online. Full-time students can complete the RN-to-BSN program in as little as one year, enabling them to quickly achieve their educational goals and increase their options for career mobility.
