anyone heard of PennFoster for ma?

Has anyone heard about PennFoster(online program) for ma? Is there any good or bad about it? I am almost done with the ma program and I live in new jersey and just wondering? I am a certified dietitian assistant for 11 years and currently work in a hospital and wanted a change in field but still stay in a medical field but needed to study online due to my dad's health.I help take care of him so it was helpful it was a online program. I have somewhere to do my externship it's a family friend of ours but will be doing part time externship due to my full time job and taking care of dad but willing to go part time if needed. Does being a certified dietitian assistant for 11 years count or help to be eligable to take the rma or should I wait until I do my externship and start working at family practice office(same office where I will be doing my externship)?
