"DO NOT ATTEND this school. If you do not have a very substantial and broad APRN or MD network in order to assist for clinical placement, do not even think about attending here. They advertise a "preceptor matching service" but it is nothing more than YOU cold calling places and finding a place on your own. I am still waiting for this service. It is a very frustrating situation to find yourself in. They will not provide you with a list of who others may have used in your area (that would help at least a little bit). I wish I hadn't gone here and went to a traditional school that has been established in my area. Some offices told me that they only work with certain programs and that basically my program was not reputable enough. These kind of rebuffs are enough to make you feel like you made the dumbest and costliest decision ever! If I had to do it over, I would not have chosen this school. If you have a choice, only go to this school as last resort."

"This used to be a good university, that cared about the students. Not anymore. The dean will blow you off. If you are smart, they don’t like it. The nurse practitioner instructors purposely humiliate you. They are also obsessed with cheating. I am not sure who did what in the past, but they ruined it for the rest of us. You will not get any feedback from the exams, so no learning there. If one doesn’t like you, none of them like you. My lawyer said “that’s what you get if you go to a nut school”. Oh well."

"The nursing courses are minimal, I’ve not learned anything I didn’t learn in my BSN. The core courses require double or triple the work the nursing courses. WA state requires community nursing clinical hours, the approval process through Chamberlain has been near impossible."

"Amazing program and University! I graduated in 2007 with my ADN and waited a long time to go back to school. Chamberlin University has been wonderful and made this experience a great one! I recommend this program to anyone wanting to pursue their RN to BSN."

"Constantly changing rules, even before COVID. The instructors I had were all employed elsewhere, so they really had no time for explaining or teaching. When I tried to use ASPIRE, left voice mail and got a call back 2 weeks later and was offered appointment for 4 weeks later. If I had a question , I was shuffled from one department to the next. Usually took months to answer me. Clinical hours and COMPLIO was a nightmare, although I stayed up to date on everything, the school did not. Was too much added stress. Does not teach to the boards. Just wants your money. Does not care, false advertising. I would not recommend this place."

"This school is beyond frustrating. From holding grades and practicum hours hostage to passing the buck. They just want your money and do not help with anything. I even needed to use the ASPIRE services only to be forwarded to a voice mail where no one returned my call for almost a month! This school is a joke. Totally regret it."

"Going back to school at 50 years old was a great decision. Chamberlain support system and the Preparation for an online environment made my experience stress free. The professors are accessible and grading system fair and well explained in all assignments. It’s simply the best option to choose Chamberlin University"

"Chamberlain is a great institution. I loved it so much for my MSN, it was my only choice when it came time to pursue my DNP. The instructors are kind and understanding. The school lessened some posting requirements and allowed some extensions due to COVID. I genuinely feel they care about my success."

"I am reading all of the negative reviews on here and am honestly blown away. I have attended Chamberlain for 2 degrees and both experiences couldn’t have been better. I received my BSN in 2014, and because I had such a good experience, I chose Chamberlain for my MSN as well. I recently graduated and am waiting to take my FNP certification exam soon. Chamberlain is very flexible and is designed for working people. There are no set log in times and no live lectures, but instructors and tutors are always available if needed. When my son was ill in the hospital, my instructor had no problem giving me an extension on the week’s assignment. When the pandemic hit, they relaxed and reduced class assignment requirements to make things easier on us. During my capstone course in my MSN program, they gave us access to an absolutely wonderful review course. I can’t say enough about Chamberlain. I feel very prepared with my education and am very thankful to Chamberlain. It isn’t the cheapest school in the world but it is worth it, and you do get a discount if you attend again as an alumni. If I return to school for my DNP, Chamberlain will definitely be my go to, and I would recommend this school to anyone."

"Chamberlain University has really exceeded my expectations with getting a degree online. I have always preferred in-class schooling but the instructors at the university make everything very organized and easy to navigate. I couldn’t have asked for a better online schooling experience."

"When I started off Chamberlain I was naive on the tech world and online schooling. Though my schooling was done on line they worked with me as though I was a campus student. They taught me about plagiarism and the little things you don't know exist in the new world of online learning and even in the world we live in now. They build up my skills and confidence so much that I now on my way to earn my masters in nursing. Thank you Chamberlain for what you have install in be. I wish every student have the positive outcome like did.Thanks again"

"To anyone looking to attend this school, simply don’t. Chamberlain does not care about the success of their students, they only care about the money. In the midst of a pandemic they decide to change the curriculum and when asked for the reasoning behind the changes they say “we conducted a study that shows these changes are beneficial to our students.” No other explanation than that and they won’t even grant us access to the study. They’ve even raised tuition prices during the pandemic whilst taking away certain resources. Important classes (such as pharm) are COMPLETELY online; no lecture, no powerpoints, nothing. We basically pay $650 a credit hour to teach ourselves. DO NOT attend this school."

"Having read the reviews prior to attending, I was leary about the education I’d get from the online environment. Looking back, I found all of the classes beneficial - contributing immensely to the goals I had set for myself. Yes, there is a lot of self-paced learning but that is what is expected with this type of program. The discussions, projects, and papers required critical thinking skills and application of your own experiences. If you are not self motivated and lack time management skills, this environment may not be the best fit for you. I recommend this program for other life-long learners!"

"Horrible school. I can’t even elaborate enough on this. I’ll be in debt until I die and I taught myself the entire time. Teachers don’t reply. In my BSN I had a harassing teacher that would call me and email me several times a day, it was so concerning that I dropped the class and still had to pay $1400. It was ok in the beginning when I did my BSN. My MSN teachers currently are horrible. My class discussion asked me to provide my place of employment (specific name) AND city. I did not because I felt that was unreasonable to ask students and unsafe- also omitting that information does not change the fact I know or don’t know the material. Because I didn’t want to feel unsafe giving my specific city and employer name I received 20% off the discussion. This is just one example of the atrocious things Chamberlain does. I will never recommend this school."

"When I came into the program, I thought the program was easy going until the pandemic. They started to change the curriculum half way through the program. The school does not give any sympathy to anyone. The professors and faculty expect students to learn by themselves and give no foundation on what we’re suppose know. They throw information at students without acknowledging WHY that information is critical to know. I was suppose to start learning in clinical setting since last February but the school had failed to give students the experience we need to survive in the field. I DONT NOT recommend this school at all. Not only do I feel bad for myself but for others who had fallen into this scam."

"I am extremely disappointed and disheartened by Chamberlain. I wanted to give this college the benefit of the doubt when I first came here and now, I wish I had just listened to the negative reviews and stayed far away. If there is any advice I can give anyone thinking about coming here, please save your money, time, and mental health. Halfway through the program DURING A GLOBAL PANDEMIC, they are changing the grading curriculum which will deeply affect and impact many of our progress and success in this program. The credits don't transfer, so what does that mean? Money, time, stress, sweat, tears have all been wasted. The college disregards students' feelings and could truly care less. The world needs competent and compassionate nurses right now and this college is making it impossible for that to happen because they truly want you to fail out after they collect your money. The college is losing GREAT future nurses, but they don't care. It's heartbreaking to say and I wanted to believe this college was different than the negative reviews, but even when the world is going through such a tough time, the college has shown me its true colors. If I could go back in time, I would of had myself not attend this college. Please don't make the mistake I did. I'm writing this to help somebody/anybody that is confused or debating on attending Chamberlain. I wish the circumstances were different."

"Please if you are considering this school DO NOT attend. Chamberlain only cares to line the pockets of those that aren't their students. In the middle of a semester and a pandemic they changed the grading scale to make it nearly impossible to pass future courses. With online classes and minimal clinical experiences the school decided to focus on something that thousands of their students begged and pleaded not to do. Regardless of the outcry of regret from students chamberlain had no issue forcing students to comply with their new standards. It felt like a slap to the face. They put out a YouTube video basically saying they were going to go through with it and eventually made it private because of the backlash from students. In a cowardly way to "save" their reputation they made it unavailable to the common folk and only by link can you view the video and its comments. This change will cause mass amounts of students to fail and has made so many of us have sleepless nights not knowing what our future hold. this school is selfish, disappointing and doesn't uphold the reputation they put out to the world. Please do not attend this school. The current students will never forget this disheartening stab in the back by the university that is supposed have been supporting them every step of the way."

"Chamberlain is owned by Adtalem which is the same company as DeVry which recently closed after a class action lawsuit for defrauding students. Do not attend this school!!!! They will make any small excuse to fail you or charge you in excess. This college is always at risk of losing accreditation, DONT attend."
