Chamberlain College of Nursing Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (99)
Chamberlain College of Nursing has a great online program for RN-BSN. I loved that they offered 8 week classes. The instructors were helpful and followed the guidelines set up for the classes. I was able to advance as a nurse after earning my RN-BSN. I will be attending Chamberlain College of Nursing for my MSN-FNP this Fall.
Chamberlain online allowed me what other brick and mortar schools could not. Flexibility. Otherwise my dream of obtaining a masters would not be within reach. Was the studies easy? No most certainly not. You must be dedicated and devoted to spending the time required to review and learn the material as with any other school. Did I have any issues. No more than I would have at any other school. Some instructors were awesome, others were not. That goes along with any school you attend. I am very pleased with my education, although it has been a long and time consuming 2 1/2 years. I have learned so much and I am grateful for the opportunity provided by Chamberlain to pursue my masters.
Excellent program excellent library resources .. I have attended other online programs and this is by far the best . I feel like this school will prepare me for my upcoming career. Teachers are wonderful and give good feedback! Best online experience yet!
I have enjoyed the online experience which allowed me to study around work. Students complain about having to find your own preceptors. Everyone is a nurse who has worked with people in all fields. Networking is constant. I found my preceptors through past and present jobs. I believe you get back what you put in and feel prepared.
It is a great school. I have found it to be much more organized then the private school where I received my ADN. It requires a lot of hard work. Having the ability to self study is important in an online program. Instructors and staff are all profession, friendly, and helpful.
I received my BSN in 2010 from CCN-St.Louis and decided to return in 2016 for my FNP. My decision to return was based on the positive experiences during the BSN program. The MSN is a bit different as I didn't have the option of going to classes on campus but I will say CCN has given me the necessary tools to still be successful in my journey of seek a graduate degree. You get out what you put into an online education and you have to be prepared to take accountability for your progression and advancement to becoming a knowledgeable APRN. I wish we had more assistance finding preceptors but that seems to be the general consensus for NP students in most programs.
The case studies really help to grasp what goes on in the real world, applying the new knowledge being taught. With the focus on case study discussions instead of cramming for exams , it's helping me learn in a whole new way. The professors are professional and the help desk is helpful! The courses are accelerated, so be ready!
There were some inconsistencies with requirements along the way, but overall it was a great program and I felt very well prepared for certification and practice. The clinical courses did a great job of implementing case studies that were applicable to practice, and the capstone board review course was fantastic!
Do not attend this school! Worse mistake I ever did was start this program. You basically teach yourself while they take your money. Teachers do not offer feedback and there are no tests or quizzes so you basically are doing case studies that require looking up evidence based articles that take up time you could use for real studying! Finding a clinical site is up to as well as doing the practium coordinators job, too much time doing the school's job while they over charge you for a sub par education. CCN actually allows people who cheat to stay in the program, I know first hand! I sent an email to an instructor and the dean because I saw a student copied an article word for word in a discussion post and nothing was done. That student is still in my class! This is the type of student representing this school! So wish I had left and transferee but no other school would accept my credits and I was already in the clinical portion of the program. Run from CCN!
Love this program and I continue to learn and grow everyday. The case study model provides a continuous learning experience and great interaction with other students and the instructors. This program is challenging but worth the challenge and has greatly prepared me for my practicum experience. I already have a job offer before graduation.
