Chamberlain College of Nursing Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (167)
I started at Chamberlain in January 2014 and was extremely impressed with the quality of the education and online modules for some classes. The traditional BSN program (not RN-BSN) is an accelerated format which suits my learning style. However, it is not for everyone. You need to be proactive and diligent on your work, as it's easy to fall behind. The students who do the best in the program are those who are highly motivated and who have taken most prerequisites at a community college prior to starting at CCN. It is an expensive option but I didn't want to wait on a list for a year or more at another school to get into their nursing program. The professors are attentive and caring and truly look out for your best interest & will try to help you find your niche in nursing. You have to put the time into it though and be extremely organized. This is a fast paced program for adult learners who don't need hand holding to work through the course material. I highly recommend this program and am considering the FNP program for myself in the fall.
I have been a student at CCN for last 10 years. I graduated with my BSN, MSN- Ed, MSN- FNP, and DNP from Chamberlain College of Nursing. I have been in traditional schools in between, but it did not work out well. I enjoyed being a student at CCN. it works well with my busy schedule by being a full time mom, student and full time job. I am very proud that I went to CCN. the faculty was excellent. The curriculum is slightly tough but it will mold you to be an excellent scholar. I have recommended many colleagues to this college and all enjoyed to be a student at CCN.
Excellent program; supportive instructors. Problem based approach. Evidenced-based practice. Encourages and motivates student learning. The program is doable for those who work full-time. The reading material is easy to comprehend, the weekly lectures summarize the assigned readings. The database library is student friendly with up-dated peer-reviewed articles.
Very unorganized and misleading regarding the time it takes to complete. Inconsistent teaching styles made it difficult to follow expectations from class to class. No assistance with confirming clinical and I had to continuously contact them to find out the status of contracts. Had 3 different switches of practicum coordinators which caused even more delays. So many delays I had to sit out a turn because the contract for my 2nd clinical rotation was completed but not the 1 for the 1st one. Would choose differently if I had it to do over.
I successfully graduated from Chamberlain with my undergraduate BSN without any problems. The professors, and staff are amazing. I have gotten support from the beginning of the program until the end. Pros: online classes are convenient and easy to follow. Cons: price. I am currently in their online MSN program because I love the flow, and curriculum that Chamberlain offers. It fits my busy lifestyle, and learning preference.
I have nothing but good things to say about this school. I graduated in Dec. 2016 w my masters in FNP and the school has been very helpful with all of the information needed to provide to both AANP and BON. I have continued on with this school for my DNP because I appreciate how helpful they have been and how organized the online setting is.
SAVE YOUR MONEY! This school is so unorganized. The instructors who teach online never even email you back. They are out only out for your money and care little about quality. This was not a good choice and if I had to do it over I would run for my life.
I enjoyed the flexibility of online classes the Professors and my fellow classmates were very respectful. I began this journey in October , 2014 and was very hesitant after being out of the classroom for 30 years. My experience her at Chamberlain College of Nursing has been great I plan on continuing with my MSN.
This school is fast paced with classes every 8 weeks. Recommended to take pre requisite courses at a JC it will save you thousands of dollars. ($33,000) it saved me! The teachers are awesome although they expect you to know your material & there is no lecture. It is a very self motivated and autonomous school in which you determine your success. I am highly pleased with my choice of school mainly because the classes I had already completed allowed me to take less classes every 8 weeks. The most I will have is 1 or 2 classes or clinicals for each 8 weeks. I am satisfied with the school all in all and would highly recommend it for those of you who do not want to wait for a year or longer to get into a BSN program. The only downfall is the general ed classes are ran by DeVry and many students seem to not be pleased with the instructors of that portion.
I recommend this school to anyone who is sure they don't need a classroom experience. You will be sitting at your computer processing and learning subject matter on your own. This can get lonely and frustrating when you are unsure of yourself initially. You can call and send your instructor emails regarding your needs however. You must be able to write ( how many sentences in a paragraph, APA, how to outline your thoughts and structure your sentences and paragraph). The school has so much on- line help/resources it's ridiculous). I went on YouTube a lot and typed in paragraphs, APA, basic typing formats etc.just to bring me up to speed with my deficits. The professors I've had were very supportive and treat you like an adult learner. I love this school!!! They get it!!!
