About the College

Acquired by Post University in 2021 and renamed American Sentinel College of Nursing & Health Sciences, American Sentinel was established as a school dedicated to providing high quality instruction, student support, and high graduation rates.

Over time, American Sentinel University began to focus on providing healthcare and nursing programs online, including an RN to BSN degree completion program that could be taken in both a traditional term-based online format or with the increased flexibility of a self-paced format (during the 16-week semester) modality known as the Powered by SIMPath™ program. The school also offers Master of Science in Nursing program with distinct, career-focused specializations along with a number of Nurse Practitioner specializations, Doctor of Nursing Practice program, and health management programs

Along the way, American Sentinel earned programmatic accreditations from the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) for their RN to BSN degree, RN to BSN/MSN dual degree, MSN degree with eight specializations, and the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) for their Doctor of Nursing Practice program with four specializations.
