"Let me tell you something about this money grubbing university. I am in so much debt due to this so call university. I got in and was told I did not need any math classes; however, day 1, I get a call form 2 of their so called counselors and was told, oh wait you need a math class despite us accepting the credits from your previous school. I had a credit that was coming to me from financial aid. They knew I didn't need this class and that I had this credit. I was told that if I didn't take the math class, I couldn't move on to the next 8 weeks without it. I asked how does this make sense that now you are not accepting my math class? New rules, this gets them the credit that I was to receive plus a fee that "should cover the class" I was flabbergasted. It just didn't make sense to me. This school is tied to my job, i"ve made several accommodations to attend this school and every time I turn around a financial aid adjustment has been made. The discount covers NOTHING. This place is nothing but a money scam. You will pay3 times as much as any other school around. Do yourself a favor, do your research and attend another more reputable school."

IF YOU TRULY LOVE NURSING PLEASE DON"T GO TO THIS SCHOOL!!!!! DO YOUR RESEARCH ON THIS SCHOOL REVIEWS, BEFORE SIGNING UP. - 9/4/2019

"Please do yourself a favor and if your passion is truly the Nursing career DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL!!! I had the worst experience ever. From being discriminated for my ADHD learning disability, to having certain professors put me down and make rude and prejudice comments about my ADHD. All they are about is academic integrity, but are the ones violating their own policy and have nothing about honesty in them. Some professors are truly amazing at this school and will give their all for your success and understand that all students have a stressful and keep the students motivated. Other professors don't care, but care about the money and failing students for fun and throw them under the bus without feeling any type of remorse if the students are having a difficult time. What your told at the beginning upon signing up to this school its all lies. Please if you want to succeed in the nursing career and have a motivated/ compassionate and understanding nursing school experience DO NOT ATTEND THIS SCHOOL.....Read all the reviews on this school and you will see how inconsiderate the staff at this school is, starting from some professors, including the president of the school herself has lack of empathy and lacks the WILLINGNESS to show compassion. PS: They will literally make you feel like they are playing like clowns Juggling balls with you education and money."

"Useless school. They are known as a joke in the nurse practitioner world. The first half of the program is fine; however the second specialty classes are not organized and try to squeeze too much information into an 8 week course. They make you go to Illinois to do an immersion weekend to test your assessment skills. They give you a list of assessment skills and tell you to practice at home on your family. Really? That is not adequate for preparation for clinicals. They expect you to fond your own preceptors. They tell you that they will help you find one if you are not able; however they don't. You put in requests and they ignore them. In my first clinical rotation I felt so out of place and was not prepared at all. There is no communication between the school and your preceptor. This led to my preceptor not accepting Chamberlain students anymore. In Ohio a lot of current FNPs refuse to take on Chamberlain students as they are not prepared as they should be. Also I decided to change tracks from FNP to policy and they told me it wouldn't be a problem. They eventually denied my request and could not give me a clear reason. They basically told me that I either need to stay in the FNP track or drop out. I am trying to see if my credits will transfer anywhere; but I doubt they will. If I could give them 0 stars I would."

"This college allows you time to obtain your degree online and work. The coursework is manageable for the most part and most students at the college end up doubling up on the core courses. The core courses are basic in nature and are time consuming, but easily manageable. I found that most of the core courses are a waste of time and should focus more on important classes such as pharmacology. Classes such as pharmacology and assessment are hard to take in within the 8 week period. Many students are unable to work a full time job during these classes because of the amount of time it takes to complete."

"Worst University. Disorganized, instructors are unprofessional and some very nasty. The classes and tests are horrible. If your lucky you will find a clinical site but dont expect CU to lift a finger for you and the thousands of $$$ you give them to teach yourself. Lots of busy work that does nothing to enhance your self taught education. If your smart you will go elsewhere."
