Chamberlain College of Nursing Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (120)
I am warning all of you considering coming to the New Jersey campus run for the hills or at least go with your other choice. The New Jersey campus is poorly run by money hungry savages. Once you are in you are truly on your own they will purposely watch you fail just so you can pay for the course again. Transfer students from other Chamberlain campuses are extremely shocked with the lack of consistency. Take it from a student who can't wait to graduate.
NJ campus. Student services experience is horrible. They are always busy, no one returns your emails or calls. Incorrect information is given out constantly. The lack of quality customer service is rather frustrating. Chamberlain does an excellent job in recruiting you but once you get in there you are on your own. You either sink or swim. Think twice before you consider this school. Overly priced as well, this is a for profit school.
I started at Chamberlain in January 2014 and was extremely impressed with the quality of the education and online modules for some classes. The traditional BSN program (not RN-BSN) is an accelerated format which suits my learning style. However, it is not for everyone. You need to be proactive and diligent on your work, as it's easy to fall behind. The students who do the best in the program are those who are highly motivated and who have taken most prerequisites at a community college prior to starting at CCN. It is an expensive option but I didn't want to wait on a list for a year or more at another school to get into their nursing program. The professors are attentive and caring and truly look out for your best interest & will try to help you find your niche in nursing. You have to put the time into it though and be extremely organized. This is a fast paced program for adult learners who don't need hand holding to work through the course material. I highly recommend this program and am considering the FNP program for myself in the fall.
I have been a student at CCN for last 10 years. I graduated with my BSN, MSN- Ed, MSN- FNP, and DNP from Chamberlain College of Nursing. I have been in traditional schools in between, but it did not work out well. I enjoyed being a student at CCN. it works well with my busy schedule by being a full time mom, student and full time job. I am very proud that I went to CCN. the faculty was excellent. The curriculum is slightly tough but it will mold you to be an excellent scholar. I have recommended many colleagues to this college and all enjoyed to be a student at CCN.
Excellent program; supportive instructors. Problem based approach. Evidenced-based practice. Encourages and motivates student learning. The program is doable for those who work full-time. The reading material is easy to comprehend, the weekly lectures summarize the assigned readings. The database library is student friendly with up-dated peer-reviewed articles.
Very unorganized and misleading regarding the time it takes to complete. Inconsistent teaching styles made it difficult to follow expectations from class to class. No assistance with confirming clinical and I had to continuously contact them to find out the status of contracts. Had 3 different switches of practicum coordinators which caused even more delays. So many delays I had to sit out a turn because the contract for my 2nd clinical rotation was completed but not the 1 for the 1st one. Would choose differently if I had it to do over.
I successfully graduated from Chamberlain with my undergraduate BSN without any problems. The professors, and staff are amazing. I have gotten support from the beginning of the program until the end. Pros: online classes are convenient and easy to follow. Cons: price. I am currently in their online MSN program because I love the flow, and curriculum that Chamberlain offers. It fits my busy lifestyle, and learning preference.
I have nothing but good things to say about this school. I graduated in Dec. 2016 w my masters in FNP and the school has been very helpful with all of the information needed to provide to both AANP and BON. I have continued on with this school for my DNP because I appreciate how helpful they have been and how organized the online setting is.
SAVE YOUR MONEY! This school is so unorganized. The instructors who teach online never even email you back. They are out only out for your money and care little about quality. This was not a good choice and if I had to do it over I would run for my life.
I enjoyed the flexibility of online classes the Professors and my fellow classmates were very respectful. I began this journey in October , 2014 and was very hesitant after being out of the classroom for 30 years. My experience her at Chamberlain College of Nursing has been great I plan on continuing with my MSN.
