"I would highly suggest people seeking a nursing degree to seek elsewhere. This program was helpful and hopeful in the first few months of enrollment but when you get to the actual nursing classes (NR-classes) they leave you high and dry. The student advisors do not care for the success of the student. They are not attentive and sincere in the overall outcomes of their students. The faculty practice unequal grading that you will soon find out with the many student group chats that I was apart of. The lead professors didn’t see a problem nor did the dean. One certain professor was not equipped to be a professor as she didn’t know the assignment protocols, it would only be left for the student to figure out in which failure became inevitable. Professors don’t answer emails as well even though they have a 24 hour answer policy which was clearly not practiced. They have a 76% grading policy anything lower they will not budge even for 75.85%. Wasted money and time with this program. I would suggest for future nursing students to seek an associate degree program, become an RN, start working and getting paid as an RN and then go back for your BSN degree. Good luck."

"I've gone through 3 different schools and Chamberlain University has been the best all around! I am a proud alumni and current FNP student. The program is great and the instructors care about their students. I felt supported through every process of the schooling. I didn't have to endure insufferable calls like the other schools and everyone I spoke with at the school have been helpful and caring."

"Super supportive student services. Classes are very workable for me even though I work full time. Check with your employer , as mine gives tuition reimbursement. I never thought I'd go back for my BSN, and I'm already more than halfway. Professors are very reachable."

"I had three prior degrees before enrolling at Chamberlain - bachelor's in marine science, master's in education, and a bachelor's in nursing. All three of these degrees were done at a mortar and brick institution, which I loved. However, these types of school do not offer much flexibility for those who have families and jobs. Additionally, by my third degree, I felt that I already knew how to study and did not receive much from in-class learning. I looked at several online schools and decided on Chamberlain University as it checked all my boxes - family nurse practitioner program, affordable, military discount, and excellent reviews. Additionally, I knew a few friends who completed the FNP program and loved it; they also felt that it prepared them well for the work environment. When previous instructors found out I was attending Chamberlain, they respond with, "Oh! I hear that's a great school." Chamberlain has been offering online programs for quite awhile, so I feel like they have their act together. The technology is advanced, reliable, and easy to use. It took me about a week to get used to the interface, but that is going to be true for any new technology. I have also had a great experience with all the faculty! They are friendly, keep you informed of due dates, and are available through email, the student portal, or phone; I ask a lot of questions and they were always answered in a timely manner (within 12 hours usually). However, you can always call and talk to the instructors over the phone during office hours. My one disclaimer is that students are expected to be very self-sufficient. However, this is true of ANY online learning program. The staff is extremely friendly, flexible, understand, and always willing to help students in any way. Having said that, you are an adult and will be treated as such. Do not blame the teachers or anyone else for your inability to complete assignments or understand the material - especially if you did not reach out to the administration in a timely manner. I am a third of the way through the program, and I have loved every class/professor thus far!"

"Chamberlain has supported through the pandemic. They were constantly reaching out and also gave me space when needed. When I had to drop my class, they supported, and when it was time to restart they reached out to me. Chamberlain is expensive but very caring staff"

"Chamberlain has been absolutely amazing. They have been great in all aspects and have allowed me to ask questions when necessary of any department. Whether that be general questions or class specific questions. They are quick to return messages and ensure that we have everything we need to succeed. They provide Career Services such as improving your resume which was extremely helpful as well as providing tips on how to stand out from the crowd to get the job you want. They have been amazing throughout my Bachelors in Nursing, and I will be finishing up my Masters in Nursing in August. I would suggest them to anyone and would say they are definitely worth every penny!"

"Starting a nursing school was so stressful, but I soon realized that I am at a perfect school. Teachers are not only experienced and knowledgeable, but they are also super supportive and available. They showed sincere care about our education as well as our overall well-being. I feel that I received great education, and my professors are such an inspiration and example of what a great nurse/ educator should/could be. I really feel that no words could sufficiently express my gratitude to my teachers for their professionalism and care! If I could choose my school again, I'd happily choose Chamberlain, Addison campus!"

"Chamberlain is amazing. The Professors will take their time and explain the subject to you. They have great reviews and workshops to help you study for your test and homework assignments. Their focus is to make sure you have the ability to pass the NCLEX and become a successful Nurse. They really care about their students."

"Chamberlain University is the perfect fit for professionals looking to return to school for their graduate degree. There is an abundance of support. I put this endeavor off for way too long due to feeling intimidated by online learning. Chamberlain has shown me this is an attainable goal."

"Chamberlain has small class sizes, amazing nursing instructors, and the resources available to each student are endless. They truly prepare you for NCLEX months before you are even ready to take it. It is an advanced program, so the workload is intense and at times overwhelming, but again the teachers are always willing to go above and beyond to ensure that you understand the concepts."

"Worst school ever. They have the worst customer service and no matter how many times you call, no one has a clue of what they are doing. They don’t approve your preceptor in a timely manner and don’t even bother help you find one like other schools. They wait until the last minute to deny any preceptors and have the worst..I mean worst system for classes...stay far away from this school unless you like jumping through hoops, being on hold for hours and getting stressed out."
Disappointed MSN student
  • Reviewed: 5/16/2021
"I am 2-courses away from a MSN degree but may not be able to finish because Chamberlain will not let me enroll unless I have a clinical site, which I have not been able to get because Chamberlain does not help you find sites. Then, when you think you might have found a site on your own (CVS Minute Clinic) they denied me as I have not done a pediatric rotation, which is extremely hard to find on your own. I have been sitting it out for 3 months now and the more time I am away the harder it will be to finish. Chamberlain does not care about their students success, they will step over you and keep moving to process more students to enter their program and collect private school fees. The classes are online, and if you are stuggling the response is just " figure it out". You pay high fees to learn on your own and find your own clinical sites."

"Professors are aimed at helping you to achieve success. I was able to contact the dean each semester to take double the course load. I was able to graduate with my BSN in 9 months, will have completed the MSN in 12 months, and beginning my DNP in September. The professors ensure that the content is understood and information is not being lost. I recommend Chamberlain to everyone after a poor experience within the ADN program at another school. Thankful for the professors to understand that we are working professionals, some with less work experience than others in the program but we are able to build upon one another. I will not choose another school to finish my DNP."

"Horrible, Horrible school. Used to be good about 10 years ago. Used to be supportive of students. Now there is a huge clique among the nursing department of average learning capacity. Has turned into a diploma mill, go to a state school and save money and trouble."

"This university has been the best decision I have made. I had the greatest time and learning experience for my bachelors degree and the professors have been so motivating but I decided to go back for my FNP 6months after graduating I will be graduating this year from Chamberlain University with my FNP and hopefully work a year and a half and then go back for my doctorate I would not have chosen at another school over this university they really truly want you to succeed."

"Chamberlain gives me a complete support system. As a single mom of special needs children and who has not been in school in several years, this is the perfect school for me. Chamberlain helped me realize that I am not too old to go back to school. From the beginning of my application process until now (which is the end of my first semester), I had help and support every step of the way. Even my instructors helped me find the best type studying strategies for me. It is a lot of work, but the pay off is worth it. Chamberlain works with you to make sure that you succeed in the nursing program and in your nursing field. A major part of success in Chamberlain is communication. If you know that you are struggling or having other problems, it is key to communicate with your instructors, advisors, and coaches. Chamberlain offers help for students through one on one, groups, and seminars through various communication options. If you are looking to advance your career in healthcare, this is the school for you."

"Great experience. The student services to the practicum team to the instructors have been phenomenal. They really showed their support during covid. Other schools were not allowing students to attend clinical. Chamberlain allowed banking hours and other assignments. I am graduating exactly on time and have all my hours because of their support and working endlessly to change as needed. Some students may complain about feeling it is not a good education but I disagree. It’s an online program except for clinical. The case studies and papers all had critical thinking and masters level preparation. They gave resources, instructor phone calls and discussions, and really it’s up to the student the work they put in to succeed just like an in-person school. Chamberlain has been around a long time with it’s sole focus on nursing. They know how to prepare the nurse at the various educational levels. I can’t stress enough that it is up to the student how well they succeed, or conclude that the NP degree is not for them. I thank Chamberlain for the wonderful experience and I am 100% satisfied that I chose them over other local or online schools."

"Chamberlain truly cares for students to achieve their educational goals. There is a Chamberlain staff who guides a student to pursue educational enhancements but is still undecided on what path to take. Chamberlain offers many support services that make the student's personal, work-life, and school life manageable. The instructors are supportive & committed in their efforts. Issues are handled timely & efficiently. I have not been in school for more than 20 years & graduated from a foreign nursing school. I am intimidated by online learning since I am not a computer-savvy person. I am happy that my previous manager recommended Chamberlain for me. I called and a Chamberlain staff went above and beyond in helping me. He was very patient and encouraging despite the delay in my needed documents to be obtained from a foreign nursing school. Chamberlain made me achieved my goal of becoming our department’s leader. I was promoted to Clinical Nurse Manager after six months of enrolling in the Nurse Executive Track. I would not have gotten the job if I'm not pursuing my MSN degree. I learned so many things from Chamberlain that equipped me with the needed knowledge, skills, competencies, and abilities as a leader. I have also a positive and inspiring experience with Chamberlain’s Assistant Dean during my most difficult and challenging times that empowered me to continue doing my best and not be discouraged by obstacles. The unwavering support, guidance, kindness, and care that Chamberlain’s faculty and staff provide ensure educational success; as long as students do their part with hard work, perseverance, and commitment; Chamberlain’s Care will pave the way for your enlightening and successful educational journey!"

"Chamberlain though more pricey than some other Universities were very eager to help me succeed in any area they were able to. I only had one class I was not pleased with and it was unrelated to nursing. The free tutoring was a relief for my math class and the library they provide access to is very user friendly and helpful."
