Chamberlain College of Nursing Reviews - Master's in Nurse Practitioner (Family)
As a newer program it definitely had some kinks but overall I feel I have earned a quality education working around my work and family schedule. Just like ANY school, brick and mortar or online, you get what you put into it! I felt like my learning process was an ongoing collaboration between the class work and practicum experiences. I know one big frustration for some of my classmates was finding practicum sites. This is not a unique problem to Chamberlain. Every FNP program has this issue as students are flooding into programs. In the end... I am responsible for my own learning and my own knowledge, as in any program.
I was very pleased with my education at Chamberlain. I have my BSN and 2 MSN degrees from this school and I highly recommend it for anyone needing flexibility. The online programs are tough but they teach you discipline, which is very important in this field. You have to be focused and ready to learn. I felt very prepared when I graduated and was able to pass my FNP board exam on the first try 2 weeks after graduation. I now have a great job with excellent pay and benefits. I would not have been able to make it this far without this educational opportunity. I am a proud Chamberlian graduate and highly recommend this school!
I attended Chamberlain for my undergraduate degree and liked it so much that I'm now back for my masters degree as a family nurse practitioner. This graduate degree program isn't for the faint of heart, or for those who want to have their hand held. This is a challenging program, and rightfully so.
Great school! Great instructors! There are some issues with finding preceptors for clinical, but I've heard that every single FNP program, including on-campus FNP programs, has this problem. Greatly satisfied with this school and would (and already did) this school to many of my co-workers. Some of them already started their journey with CCN.
This program is continually trying to challenge their students and push them to pursue the most appropriate learning environments for their learning. As a distance learning student I was grateful for the guidance and support towards my masters degree.
I love this school. There are so many negative comments from people but they are all personal opinions. I love that school is flexible for those of us who are working and have families. I feel that this school provides us with the sufficient knowledge to be able to practice in my clinical setting. Yes, we have to find our clinical preceptors but that is okay because after all its a masters program there will be no one to hold your hand and nor should you expect it. I like that the online setting is very much organized and if you need help there is help available. This school is not for those people who think that they don't have to work for their degree because you get what you invest in this education. I definitely recommend this school.
CCN offers working professionals the opportunity to pursue a higher education with online classes. This program requires a substantial amount of reading and writing. It will.give you back what you put into it. No secret there. Instructors are helpful
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.
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.
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.
