Austin Campus – Pre-Licensure BSN Programs
Aspen moved into our brand-new Austin location in December 2020, and today you’ll find multiple classrooms, debriefing rooms, and a computer lab set up for all student learning needs. While didactic courses are completed online, the simulations, labs, seminars, and clinical are all face-to-face. Students can expect small class sizes to enhance their learning experience and increase instructor access and interaction. Our high-tech skills lab with mannequins and clinical simulator rooms mirror real-life scenarios that allow for teaching most nursing skills.
The simulated hospital includes five hospital rooms that have oxygen, suction, running water, and hospital beds. Additionally, we have a birthing suite set up with a high-fidelity mannequin. The nursing station is equipped with the same medication administration system that you will see in the surrounding hospitals. We understand that students may not want to work in the hospital setting but instead work in a doctor’s office or home health setting. Therefore, we have three fully-stocked exam rooms and a patient apartment set up.

Texas Clinical Partners
Aspen University’s Clinical Partnership is the largest not-for-profit healthcare system in Texas and one of the largest in the United States. In the Austin/Round Rock region, clinical rotations are planned at 7 of the system’s largest hospitals and their associated acute care or community-based settings, ambulatory sites, and clinics.
Aspen has helped me achieve my academic goals through its outstanding online BSN program. I must admit it was a bit overwhelming for someone from the Baby Boomer generation to attempt this type of online learning program. But the amazing advisors and the wonderful professors supported me every step of the way. They encouraged me when I was frustrated and felt like giving up. ‘One step at a time, one module at a time,’ they kept saying. Those three letters, BSN, have been a dream for me, and I’m proud that I got straight As in my coursework.
Since graduating from Aspen, I have more confidence now and have felt like I belong in the infection control circles. There’s nothing like success to make you feel comfortable enough to engage in conversations with physicians and leaders in healthcare.
