Chamberlain College of Nursing Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (125)
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.
This school is fast paced with classes every 8 weeks. Recommended to take pre requisite courses at a JC it will save you thousands of dollars. ($33,000) it saved me! The teachers are awesome although they expect you to know your material & there is no lecture. It is a very self motivated and autonomous school in which you determine your success. I am highly pleased with my choice of school mainly because the classes I had already completed allowed me to take less classes every 8 weeks. The most I will have is 1 or 2 classes or clinicals for each 8 weeks. I am satisfied with the school all in all and would highly recommend it for those of you who do not want to wait for a year or longer to get into a BSN program. The only downfall is the general ed classes are ran by DeVry and many students seem to not be pleased with the instructors of that portion.
I recommend this school to anyone who is sure they don't need a classroom experience. You will be sitting at your computer processing and learning subject matter on your own. This can get lonely and frustrating when you are unsure of yourself initially. You can call and send your instructor emails regarding your needs however. You must be able to write ( how many sentences in a paragraph, APA, how to outline your thoughts and structure your sentences and paragraph). The school has so much on- line help/resources it's ridiculous). I went on YouTube a lot and typed in paragraphs, APA, basic typing formats etc.just to bring me up to speed with my deficits. The professors I've had were very supportive and treat you like an adult learner. I love this school!!! They get it!!!
If I had it to do over again, I would have picked a different college. As a single mom who works 2 jobs, time and money are both tight, so it would be nice to know the truth about how many classes are accepted from previous college.They lead you to believe your previous college credits for math will be accepted and then , after completing several nursing courses, tell you you have to take a placement test( one advisor said they did accept my credits and then when I went to sign up for stats, I wad told that was not the case) and add more courses to your curriculum- just to make more money in my opinion. Had I known that, I would have gone to a college that accepted my algebra credits and had not misled me both during the application process and after I wad enrolled.
I have been very pleased with the RN-BSN online program through Chamberlain. The customer service is excellent and the instructors are respectful. I appreciate being able to focus on obtaining my degree without having to jump through hoops like I would have to at a traditional university. I will be graduating with my BSN in February 2017 and will be continuing on into their online FNP program. I am very excited about being able to pursue my professional career goals while maintaining my work/life balance. I love the flexibility of being able to work on school on my own time.
