Chamberlain College of Nursing Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (138)
You, yes you!! I know you are thinking of going to Chamberlain College of Nursing in North Brunswick NJ now, don't even try it!!!!. Yes, I understand you want to go to nursing school, nursing has been your passion since only God knows, but if you don't want to waste your precious years achieve nothing, DO NOT ATTEND THIS SCHOOL!!!. Your admission to the school is guaranteed, and they will sweet talk everything just to get you in and take your money, then they will show you their true color. They are very disorganized, all the faculty members are not there to teach you what you need you to know, but to set you up for failure. They will give you the exam which I bet if they give to most of them to take, they cannot pass it just so they can fail you. Then they will go to their offices and be laughing at students on how they make the exam so difficult. They fired some of the professors who disagreed with their wicked approach towards students and if you report any of the professors to the dean, you will be their target. Yes, nursing is not an easy program, yes you have to be dedicated and be able to retain information, but even if you have the ability to do all these, these people will find a way to fail you. My 2 cents advice for you is don't go there, please run and run, you're better off somewhere else. Thank me later!
CHAMBERLAIN ADMINSRTATION DOES NOT CARE ABOUT THEIR MISSION STATEMENT TO DEVELOP EXCELLENT NURSES OR CARE ABOUT THEIR STUDENTS! APPLICANTS BEWARE! I completed my BSN through Chamberlain approximately 1 ago. There were issues with poor tech support and changes made to the online class process that created tedious study experiences. Overall, I enjoyed my BSN classes. However, my MSN is a totally different story. I have had long wait times on hold to reach IT (greater than 30 minutes on hold at times). When I would finally reach someone at the help/IT desk after a long wait, there were times where they were not at all knowable in the area they were assisting me in, stated they would place a ticket for someone to contact me to assist me further, most times I received a return call or email. Multiple complaints about 2 instructors who were at best absent and/or inflammatory still continue to teach. Now they have instituted a new online design with has had numerous glitches. At times I have been unable to access parts of my class and books. I am tech savvy but the new design took and glitches took me over 5 hours just to navigate and attempt to access IT. Please keep in mind this school was designed for those of us who work 40+ hours weekly, yet they role out a completely new design that crashes regularly. Guess what?? my assignments are still due on time regardless if I have all my resources or not and they are still charging the full amount of tuition! If you notice that that only satisfactory thing I reviewed was their financial department. Chamberlain Administration could care less about its mission statement or its students as long as they get their money. Guess what, there's little to no wait times when you call the financial aid department.
I would not recommend this school to anyone. Constant changes are being made to the school that are unacceptable. The price is outrageous for a low quality education, low quality professors, absolute no organization, and poor help from administration. Not even an accelerated program. School is interested in taking your money. Save your money and get a better education from a school that is worthy of your time and money.
Don't bother trying to contact the dean regarding any professors, nothing will change. I can't wait to graduate and leave this school. I feel like I paid to educate myself. If I could go back, I would look for another school. The online courses was the worst experience I have ever had, my experience with online classes at a community college were a lot better. I failed one course in this program and ever since then It felt as if everyone stopped caring, from the professors, to the members in the tutoring services. Don't even get me started on the incompetent advisors. I recall three times I was told by my advisors to just pay a bill I received in my student account yet she could not explain to me why I had to pay them even though I was told my loans covered all costs I needed to make. Unfortunately I was already far along in the program that I could not just leave. I don't know how I made it this far but I'm almost tempted to leave even though I have a few more months left before I graduate. I'm not even sure how many people are in my cohort anymore. It seems people were failing left and right, or dropping out or simply getting fed up with the administration and professors. I should've heeded to the red flag when I heard the cohort ahead of me had a whooping 70% of students failed a course. My advise to anyone is to let chamberlain be a last resort and even if you do go here, be on top of your finances, question every payment you are expected to make or you'll end up paying so much more than you were supposed to.
Please I beg anyone not to use this school they are stealing money from people pocket .The teachers in that school are all friends of of the director of the board so they do whatever they want .You will be on your own studying the teachers do not teach they just give you like 5 to six chapter in a day .
Chamberlain University, Family Nurse Practitioner Track has been wonderful, professors are great and the courses are challenging. The professors are engaging and ask a lot of questions. There is a lot of critical thinking skills. I definitely recommend this school.
CCN is the worst decision i ever made , and it is a reality i struggle with everyday. I would not advise even my worst enemy to set foot in this program particularly the North Brunswick NJ campus. The program looks very promising from the outside as they promise completion in three years with your BSN but that is their biggest lie, for one you will not graduate with a BSN in three years as they will make sure you fail their extremely hard exams , which are poorly written by unknowledgeable professors. They have commercials all over the web claiming they care for their students, well thats another lie as the faculty will not address questions about exams, even when 90 % of the students flank the exam and only 10% are barely passing, and also how do we perform way better on the standardized hesi final?, and dare you go to the dean for help or to complain, the professor will chastise you for even attempting to go to people above her for help Yes, its all about the money for them, as this a for profit organization , with a credit hr costing $630, please check out other institutions before coming here this should not even be a last resort. Your better off going to community college and getting your associates and doing a bridge program to get your BSN its much cheaper and will save you tons of money and stress.
Under NO circumstances would I recommend this college to anyone. They are not helpful to their students during the courses. Each teacher uses a different set of rules to grade (mind you I have 3.9 GPA). They do NOT follow national guidelines for immunizations. They do NOT give you all the information needed when you start your programs, so by the time you are given the information you stuck having to pay HUGE amounts of money or drop out at the very end. I had several people tell me not to attend this school because it was so expensive and they had not heard many good reviews. However, I asked the admissions coordinator I was working with about the issues brought to my attention and was assured these concerns had been issues in the past, but had been dealt with. LIE! You are forced to send emails because the compliance department does not have a phone number. I sent an email in March (this is June) and I still have not heard from them on that email. Not one department tells you the same thing. I am stuck having to pay over $2000 out of pocket, under budgeted, in order to finish my last 2 classes!!!! What a horrible school!
I found the admission process very easy and the adviser very helpful. I have found the professors to be very supportive in my classes and helped me achieve success. I would recommend Chamberlain for others for a great learning experience with a schedule that you can manage while working.
I was very pleased with my education from Chamberlain. I will agree with other reviews that it was one of the more expensive schools I looked at, if not the most expensive. I found the instructors and other departments very helpful. I thought the coursework was challenging but not overwhelming at all. I can only attest to the online education, which did not require clinicals or onsite classroom work. The instructors provided excellent feedback and always responded to any inquires in a timely manner. Assignments and reading requirements were given in advance for all of the classes at the start of each semester with plenty of time to finish. I enjoyed this school and the process so much that I will be looking into their MSN program. My only real complaint is the website did go down several times, resulting in some frustration, but the process was well worth it.
