Chamberlain College of Nursing Reviews - Bachelor's in Nursing
Review of Nursing Bachelors Degrees
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 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 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.
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.
Excellent program! I completed the BSN , I was already an RN. I started into the Masters program because it was such a positive school. It was costly so I stopped at 9 MSN credits. I will complete when I pay. Ack my student loans. I recommend CCN over the traditional brick and mortar because you have no discrimination only grading on your submitted projects that have been completed. With medical so tech savvy, online is the way to complete this degree!
I attended Chamberlain College of Nursing from 2013-2014 for my BSN. I have decided to stay on for their MSN Family Nurse Practitioner program. I actually really like it! I love the asynchronous classes and no group projects. It has made my dream for more education a reality because I can have a really good work/life balance. I attended another online school which was way less organized than Chamberlain. So I am happy. I see other reviews that put down the teachers for not being qualified to teach. I think online schools are set up more for independent learning (in many ways). I feel I get out of it what I put in. I probably spend around 20 hours a week for one class. I do all the reading and take time to personally invest in my own learning. I know we have a nursing educator shortage. I'm grateful for those who are willing to teach us. I'm very grateful!!!! Perhaps they are not as qualified as professors in other fields. I try to ask questions when I need to and find my own answers when I need to. Some professors are better than others. Maybe one day professors will get paid enough so that those with a passion for teaching will be attracted to our field.
Not a lot of teaching is done but they expect you to learn everything. You are on your own here. New school, need high pass rates. They will fail 90% of the class. I am an A student, I cannot even pass here. They expect you to know things they never taught. Cheaters will graduate, those who study will fail. DO NOT GO HERE. This is a warning. Teacher (Health Assessment) whines a lot, does not teach and fails a lot of students. Some teachers make up their own exam that not NCLEX style, super confusing. Some professors finds joy in failing >50% of the class.
I completed a 3 year diploma in nursing and began practice in 1975. The following year, I began contacting colleges and universities regarding my interest in obtaining my bachelors degree. All were as helpful as they could be but required clinical rotations, on site classes / orientations, or offered limited to no credit for completed collegiate courses. It seemed that there was no program that allowed the non-traditional student to balance family, work, and continued formal education. The online platform at Chamberlain changed that. Every aspect of the program is user friendly and designed to help students meet their goals. There is not only ample room for the adult learner to actively balance life and study but it is, very appropriately,a key to success. Completing the course of study was neither easy nor inexpensive but I had no expectations that it would be either. The effort was very well worth it as in 2014 I graduated with honors and finally had my BSN. I would not hesitate to recommend Chamberlain College of Nursing to any professional nurse who is committed to furthering their formal education, and enjoys having their efforts rewarded.
