American Sentinel

American Sentinel University is proud to partner with the Nurses Organization of Veterans Affairs (NOVA). We offer accredited online bachelors, masters and doctoral degree and certificate programs (RN-to-BSN, RN-to-BSN/MSN, MSN, MBA Healthcare, DNP and IPC Certificate) in the high-demand healthcare field.


Since 1998 American Sentinel University has been dedicated to the service men and women of our country and those who serve in the Veteran Administration (VA). We demonstrate this dedication by supporting many DANTES programs and services, such as accepting credits for military experience, and having self-paced courses with military and veteran reduced tuition. Our flexible programs enable active duty, veterans, spouses and dependents to pursue educational goals, despite relocations and demanding schedules. Our online platform enables our students to complete their degree or certification from anywhere in the world.


Cutting-Edge Programs

At American Sentinel University, our multidiscipline programs deliver relevant learning that is immediately applicable. Curriculum and programs are created to meet professional requirements.


Nurturing Talent

American Sentinel University was founded on the principle of bringing the best traditions of American education to those who, for reasons of time, geography, or cost, could not otherwise benefit from a higher education. We put our students at the center of everything we do.  Click here to read one of the many examples.

Academic Integrity

As a CCNE and ACEN accredited university, American Sentinel has met the stringent tests of academic peer review. Academic integrity is assured. From our founding, as a Vanderbilt University Technology Company, to today, we focus on your critical need for best-practice education: time-sensitive, cost-effective undergraduate, graduate, and certification programs.
