"The past 2 1/2 years has been absolutely challenging but the program was the best academic experience of my career. I have learned so much and I am very optimistic about my career opportunities going forward. I would absolutely recommend the program to anyone looking to advance their nursing career."

"Let me start by saying that I am currently in the post master degree FNP certificate program which is is essence another master's degree in Nurse Practitioner (Family). I am absolutely graceful for Dr. Medina and her knowledge on the current national treatment guidelines and treatments. I am appreciative of the down to earth approach as adult learners that we are. Follow Dr. Medina's rubric and study directions and you will too succeed. Thank you Dr. Medina for all your caring and compassionate teachings."

"Chamberlain excels at student support and resources. You get an overall feeling that everyone wants you to succeed, and they will stop at nothing to get you there! As a non-traditional student, this has made all the difference for me. The professors all understand you must be able to maintain a good school/work/life balance and try to be as helpful as they can. The saying you get what you pay for applies well to Chamberlain. From tutoring sessions, to the simulations, and overall quality of the staff, you really cannot go wrong with Chamberlain (Columbus Campus). The reputation of this particular campus within the local hospitals speaks for itself."

"BSN (transfer) Nursing Student. Chamberlain student since January 2020. What I like about Chamberlain: -The admissions process was fairly easy and I had A LOT of assistance in ensuring every step was complete. -Able to transfer credits -I am a Phoenix campus student. I enjoy the facility, break areas, free popcorn in the lounge, and the small campus. -My courses for the entire degree program are mapped out. This makes it very easy for me to keep track of my progress and to graduate at my expected time. -There are SO MANY resources. There is a help, or app, or person, or email, or something for everything! It can at times be difficult to navigate so much, but there is help available for every need I have encountered. -Each class so far has different interactive learning assignments. I find the assignments fun and challenging at times. Some are required homework but others are just for extra practice. Things I do not prefer about Chamberlain: -Tuition is expensive. There are not scholarships or grants given by the school. At previous Universities I attended, I earned scholarships for my GPA and test scores. There are resources available and information regularly sent out that directs students to available scholarships and grants from third parties (like ones funded by hospitals, governments, or organizations). Of course, federal grants and loans are available as with other schools. -Limited Instructor choice. I have had a professor that I had issues with, but the professor was the only one that taught the subject, so I was unable to change instructors (Each session, we are able to review each course and instructor). -Quality of instruction varies. I have had amazing Professors at Chamberlain, but also a couple that didn't seem very current in their education but relied heavily on their professional nursing experience and opinions. I value my professors experience and what they can contribute to labs and clinicals. In a classroom setting, I expect every professor to be competent and up to date with information and what we are learning."

"I have to file a complaint with the department of higher learning because of the treatment and the emotional distress the school has placed me under. After weeks and weeks of setting up to start my practicum they keep throwing things in the way so that I do not get registered I came off a leave of absence and they tried to tell me I needed to take a bunch of additional classes, I thought and got that taken care of then they told me I had to pay my past due balance I got that taken care of then they told me I would be registered within a couple of days after fighting over and over and multiple hours wasted on the phone right before classes start They tell me that I need to do another background check. This is terrible as my drive has already allowed me to be off two days during the week to complete the rest of my program not to mention the fact that I’ve rushed around and gotten all my stuff together. The school is rude they treat me terrible and I’m filing a complaint I would not recommend them and once I am done I will not give them a good review. Please stay away from Chamberlain College of nursing there are far better colleges"

"DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!! Spend your money on a reputable school that you won't be embarrassed to tell people where you go. You'll go broke paying for classes that are essentially self-taught. Professors are nasty, and don't answer emails/questions in a timely manner. One professor eventually responded in such broken English that I started questioning how she ever survived APA. The only time someone will get back to you in student resources is when you're trying to make a payment. This college will frustrate you to no end while questioning your intelligence, experience, and career as a nurse. The DNP behind the professors does not equate to a good teacher. THERE IS NO TEACHING!! I was so excited to learn at the grad level, and this program has left me disheartened as a nurse. Advice: find a different school if you have any self respect."

"As a graduate student, one would expect instructors to be educational and helpful during courses. It would also be of expectation that the school works with you to meet your practicum needs. However, this has not been the case with Chamberlain University. I am currently three classes into the program it has been a HORRENDOUS experience. I chose to attend Chamberlain as a friend of mine referred it to me. The curriculum has been changed since she was a student, and the new curriculum is horrible. I am not the type of student to do my work last minute and put small amounts of effort into my work. Instead, I work weeks ahead of time on my assignments, spending hours on my assignments in order to ensure quality work to be submitted. I am single with no kids and really no responsibilities. I also work part time (2 days a week), so you would expect someone like me to easily fly by in the program, right? Definitely wrong. I don't even know how students with kids are making it through this horrible program, and I would NEVER recommend this school to any of my friends, colleagues, or coworkers with children. I feel like instead of helping and providing guidance through courses, the instructors are out to nit-pick at your work and mark you off for anything and everything. The tests/quizzes within the courses are broad and really difficult to study for. I legit have read all the assigned readings three times, made my own study notes and utilized other study guides and continue to almost fail each test (it says something when the highest score is 115 out of 150 and the lowest score is 60 out of 150 points). On top of the courses being more difficult than it really has to be, the practicum team is basically useless. At Chamberlain you have to find your own practicum sites, and I started looking early because I have read horror stories about students having to site out for a semester because they couldn't find a site. I (again) am only in my third class of the program, and I have been able to secure three sites on my own. However, two out of three of my sites require a new education agreement/contract with Chamberlain that may take up to 6 months to process. I have reached out MULTIPLE TIMES to the practicum team and NO ONE has been able to help me. Basically they said they won't even look at my practicum sites until 3 months before I start practicum. I explained to them that a new contract with some of my sites may take up to 6 months, and guess what? THEY STILL DON'T CARE. Well it's no wonder why Chamberlain has SO MANY students sitting out for semesters because of practicum issues. They aren't even wiling to work with you! Like come on, I'm searching for my own site, I've found my site and secured it from my end and they can't do their one job with getting in contact with my site?! This program is absolutely horrible and I would not even recommend this school to my worse enemy. If you can go elsewhere I would recommend doing so because honestly this program has had me going back and forth with becoming an FNP and it shouldn't be that way. I should feel like my instructors and school team are helping me to get better and gain more education to become a great FNP, but instead I feel like they are just making graduate school more difficult and like they're just trying to fail students and collect money."

"Terrible school with no clinical or educational support. Very expensive! No assistance for clincial sites or having. The first half of the program was not difficult until the nurse practitioner courses. No suuport given for assistance in obtaining placement."

"I don't understand all the negative reviews, but I still have 12 weeks left, so we'll see how it goes. So far, I have only had an issue with one nursing instructor, but all the other instructors have been excellent, and most of them have spent time participating in the discussions. The student services and financial aid office could use some work. I say this because they will hound me saying I owe money and I'll pay it then later get a check. Also, they have had documentation to change my name since early October and it has yet to be done. I followed up last week to make sure they had what was needed, and I was told they did, so I have no idea what the hold up is. Overall I've learned a lot and the only thing so far I regret is taking my social psychology class-interesting class but a ridiculous amount of work. I regret getting into so much debt since I won't make any more money with my BSN, but that was not the school's fault."

"DO NOT go to this school. It’s quite possibly one of the worst decisions I have ever made. Not only could I have bought an amg Mercedes with the money I paid but I would of received better treatment at the dealership. Ask 4 employees the same question and you will get 4 different answers. The staff is useless. The advisors ARE useless. 4 days to return an email? A week to return a voicemail? (If you get on). I ask you to please learn from my mistake. If you respect yourself you will not go to this school. Even if another nursing school has a waitlist. Go there instead. “They sell you a lie” Stay far away"
