Chamberlain College of Nursing Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (91)
I have 3 more classes to go and I must say I am learning tons of information. Although generally a new program, I feel that Chamberlain is giving us what we need to be entry level FNPs. They are frequently making changes that reflect on the feedback of the students. We currently have a certification class that was being given in our final course but that have changed. Now we are getting access to those q bank questions earlier which allows us to be better prepared. We have heard back from students who have graduated and they have passed boards and function as an FNP and many have stated they felt that CCN prepared them. It's an online school so you get what you put forward. Lots of studying on your own time and you have to have self driven. I loved Immersion weekend in assessment! We got the opportunity to get hands on learnung on assessing patients prior to clinicals and met life long friends in the process. The most frustrating part of the program is findind preceptors but this is an issue with most programs. Start looking a year in advance as they fill up quickly. Most importantly remember to give back and become a preceptor when you are a practicing NP.
I worked as an instructor at the chamberlain college of nursing. I definitely would not recommend this school to any of potential students. They will take your money. The program is so fast paced. It is very likely to fail this program than the traditional program. You throw your money out of window. Several students called me that after they failed twice, the school denied their readmission. THEY WASTED 70000 dollars. Be careful enrolling these program.
I am extremely disappointed with the instructors, overall the way everything is ran at this school. Unfortunately, I am still attending the school just to finish what I started. Where do I begin? I had an instructor, well a few that have been extremely unprofessional. I question where they received their degree or why they were hired. I am fed up, I want to graduate and pass the NCLEX. How is that possible half of the teachers I have had chose to play games instead of lecturing and were more concerned with being outside because of the nice weather. The one thing that really caught my attention before registering was the NCLEX pass rate and come to find out that NCLEX pass rate is not what it use to be. By the way I heard this from one of the instructors. I definitely do NOT recommend this school to anyone.
Worst school ever "Beware", I wish I read the reviews prior to attending. The program focus on busy work, the professors are terrible. Chamberlain student service does not help with clinical site allocation. This school only focus on money, does not provide any student support. The lessons are not interactive.
Chamberlain college of Nursing was a rip off, they dont' care about the success of student and they don't have good instructors. All they after is your money. They only try to entice students with some sweet words just to get you into there system but as soon as you get in they don't care about your success and there academics are so poor that you may not be able to pass the board. This is just a tip for someone that could fall victim, i will suggest you look for a better school out there.
I personally have had no issues with Chamberlain. I did my bsn through them and am currently in my FNP program with them. Who ever say this is a rip off school is so not true. I have never been over charged and knew right away my fee's that needed to be paid right up front. This program is good for those of us who have to work and like any program that is online you have to work for your grade. The bsn program was a doable program but the FNP program is a much harder program but so worth the time and the money invested for a brighter future. To all those nay sayers just don't listen to them after all that is their personal opinion as to how they feel about the school based upon their negative experience with them.
The first class was a nursing course and it was a great class with an instructor who gave good criticism of my work that I appreciated however my 2nd class was liberal arts English which it was not clearly explained to me on the discussion posts and I lost a ton of points for not posting on 3 discussion topics by Wednesday and completing 2 assignments by Sunday. They say chamberlain is flexible they say chamberlain is geared towards the working student yeah right it's all about getting your money which I found out very clearly when I withdrew from the English class. I'm done with this school and I will search for another school that has better respect for their students.
So for all the negative reviews about price and extra fees are false, I did the RN to BSN option with Chamberlain and they do a transcript evaluation up front and told me what classes I needed to take and the total cost of the program in writing. This price never changed during the process and class was exactly as described. I then decided to go back and do the Family Nurse Practitioner track which has been very challenging in a good way but back to point they also gave me a transcript evaluation for this and up front about pricing and fees. This again has not changed from what they put in writing. Yes the are a little more expensive then some others but you get what you pay for. If you go cheap you get poor quality. Do your research people!
Worst school ever! I was failed from a class because I didn't turn in a paper on time (the final paper) and didn't give them notice; I went into labor and had the baby. Then after dropping their school, i get a bill 7 months later saying I owe $5000 and because it is overdue (never got any prior notification) it was being sent to collections. I spent an hour on the phone, holding. No one answered. I am a disabled vet and hey 100% VA benefits.
Teachers and Student Resource Aids have been wonderful. My problem is, and it's a major problem, I find it way too easy! The only two classes I felt challenged in were Statistics and Economics. All of the nursing classes were incredibly easy! I do not feel like I have learned much at all in terms of nursing except perhaps a little bit more about the different career roles/options to nurses. And, I mean.. A LITTLE BIT. I had considered continuing to their FNP program, but do not feel I will be given a good education, and I do not want to come out with a degree and no knowledge. So, basically right now, I feel I have only paid 30,000 for a piece of paper that says I have a BSN. No additional knowledge. I will not be returning to this college.
