Chamberlain College of Nursing Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (161)
I was enrolled in the FNP program. The curriculum skips from non track courses to track courses. I paid $126 to have fingerprinting and background check completed. The background check came back, but the fingerprinting took longer I was dropped from my course d/t something out of my control. The track course that I was dropped from did not include patient care all theory and the next course is a non track course. I paid $3000 for the class and I will not get that back. This college is a rip off!!! I would not suggest applying. No college that I looked at makes you take a track course in the middle of a curriculum then goes back to non track courses.
The online program fit my schedule the best, although its not every body. The students really need to reach out if they need help, and when they do the student support and instructors will do all they can to help them. I felt challenged yet supported at the same time. Theres work involved because its a worthy degree.
Program changes frequently. Adding requirements that involve travel with short notice. Very expensive. New requirement involves a mandatory travel to Chicago for an intensive review. Also added new requirement of browser lockdown and webcam for exams mid program.
This is the worst school I have ever been to. Do not go to CHAMBERLAIN for your degree, the professors will fail you because of your review and tell your clinical to fail you because it is okay. I am doing FNP and if I know what I know now I would not have attended this school.
Worst school ever! They stated they are convenient to life but the new program has ruined that. I would tell anyone looking at this school to run! They do not care about their students the practicing coordinators are the worst! They are no help to the money you are spending!
Many flawed program/no consideration for student/expensive/CCN says they want you to have an extraordinary learning experience/ it is neg one/they do not care about what they promote! Don't choose/Many new changes that don't include student experience.
Amazing program! Was challenging but if you put forth the effort you will do amazingly. I graduated with a 4.0 passed boards two weeks post school on first attempt. I wish they will start assisting students in the future with practicum sites. This would be a great help to students.
I believe that they purposely fail students over ridiculous things so that they can generate more revenue. The teaching staff is subpar and biased. Even when discussing issues with student advisors they do not listen. They have already made up their mind. It is very expensive and totally not worth the cost. SAVE YOUR MONEY and go to another school!!!
My experience was great I had a very helpful academicadvisor.My 15 months was one of the most enriching academic experience I have had .I would recommend this university to anyone with young children and a job 40 hr per week.The only issue I had was financial complications that may take months to be resolved.
I absolutely hate this school. I did graduate and passed NCLEX on the first hit. However, everything that they put us thru did not help me with passing my boards, Kaplan's Coursework helped the most. It is terribly expensive and theiron method of job placement is crappy. The deans at the Chicago, Addison & Tinley Park campuses are so uncaring. For this institution, it is all about the $$$. They did absolutely nothing to support me as a student or new grad. I hope they close their doors. They way I learned nursing was soooo horrible from here. Please stay away!!!
