If you are all for spending a lot of money then this is the school for you. This school admission process is tweaked in order to keep student flowing through the doors and getting money into the school. Also, dealing with tuition finances is a headache when your adviser cannot explain to you why are you being charge hundreds of dollars. Student services is also finances which is a joke. They do not have a cashier office either. All payments are made online on student portal. They do not have anyone above them to talk to and if you try to contact anyone above the adviser about issues regarding your tuition balance it will get reroute back to your adviser which can't explain where they get these numbers from. She even pulled out my charges on her screen and cannot figure out why I was being charge that. It was ridiculous ,she said if it's not paid then I won't be able to register . BEWARE for charges out the blue on account that don't add up. Also, their online classes and pre-req. courses are a JOKE! Why? because you can cheat. They will make it seem like they are all for academic integrity and make you download the student lock down browser which will prevent you from opening additional browser but we do not even use the lock down browser for online courses. So, if you have an online class you can cheat. Professor just give you 100% or 90% to make it seem like they are doing their job. I took had to retake Microbiology here since my microbiology from a community college did not transferred over and it is so much easier at Chamberlain because labs are not even compared to what you do at a community college and professor for discussion online don't even care if you copied and pasted from sites which is plagiarism. People copied from Chegg and past on discussion forum. How do I know?Because it was talked about in class. People cheated during lab exams and the professor acted like he was blinded by the sun. The study guide was the exam. It was basically memorization which can easily be done the night before the exam. College Algebra was online and you can cheat using calculators and google answers to online exams. They bend the rules here because you can retake the online algebra exam 3 times each for a better grade. You can not do that at a community college! And also this school uses ATI which ALL students get FULL POINTS on because they use quizlet to get the correct answers on 1st attempt. This school is a business school and they are all for money. Do yourself a favor and look into a public school vs a for-profit school. Also,paying $675 per credit hour is a lot so I see why they are just passing students along the way so they can get the money. Students are paying for the whole building, salary and commercials. Where else are they getting the money? They only exists because of students.They are also one of the few school that accepts dismissed students from other nursing programs because they are money hungry. That's why you'll meet students that was in previous nursing program that live in the middle of no where and commute to Chamberlain. This school is EXPENSIVE If you are starting from scratch it cost about 83K -90K for your BSN. Do yourself a favor and start at a public university or start a community college unless you don't mind the cheating and paying $675 per credit hour.
I wish I had started this program a long time ago. I have been an RN (ADN) for 21 years. I went back to school at Chamberlain University, and it only took me 2 years to get my BSN. I was that person that barely graduated high school. There is an incredible amount of support from the first call all the way through graduation. The online classes gave me the flexibility I needed with my work and family schedules. I was able to take time off for vacations, which I really needed! The few times I needed to contact Student Services, I was able to get my questions/issues resolved with only one call. The instructors answered all my questions, usually within an hour, either online or through email The online portal is very useful! Everything you need is there. Nearly all of my research was done through the Chamberlain University portal. I did use the internet for some searches, but the majority of my research was through Chamberlain. Honestly, I can't believe how great my experience with Chamberlain University was. I worked hard, sacrificed a little, and graduated with a 4.0! If I can do it at age 55, you certainly can as well. The hardest part is getting the nerve up to start the program. Once you begin, you'll be done before you know it. My next step, after a little quality time with my family, is to register with Chamberlain University for my Masters degree. I can't wait!
This school falsified how their program is and what is to be expected. There are too many students in the classes and the teachers are terrible at getting back to you or having a one-on-one. They keep changing how he run the classless and work load all the time and fill you with busy work. It was a terrible experience and I do not recommend this school. They teach you skills in one day and expect you to master it. You have to pay for everything at this school and the tuition is already a pocket burner. I would have never went to this school but they falsified how they present themselves and its very disappointing and I wish illegal. Then I could get half my tuition back because all the information was online so therefore I was my own teacher. If you can not information dump or if you are not book smart, then this school is not for you.
This is school is horrible. I signed up and heard so many bad things from a coworker. So I decided to to leave the program on the first day or school . I got $500 charged just by loging in to the blackboard. Do not go to this school. They also fail people right and left.
The staff was excellent at helping guide me through the program. The on program was easy to navigate and the professors were always available if I had questions. The financial representatives were always available for my questions and very knowledgeable regarding how I should proceed with my class selections.
They are a rip off they didnt let my daughter turn in an assignment and she was on the deans list after being in the hospital. She was given a 75 in the class now cant graduate until 2020 instead of 2019. Stay away from this school. They are extremely bad.
I have a BSN and MSN from Chamberlain and currently enrolled in the DNP. I can say the education received pushed my limits, encouraged me to think outside the box. I am proud of the education I received, It was not a degree they handed I can honestly say I earned it. The instructors are always available to assist in your education.
Excellent support through financial services, student services, and academic advising. Sometimes the hold time to get through to someone gets a little ridiculous, but leave a message or send an email, and they will call you back. Anytime I was unsure of what direction to go, they would lay out my options and encourage me to look at the pros and cons. Pricey tuition but overall I've been very pleased with the personalized support from Chamberlain.
I had a wonderful experience at Chamberlain College of Nursing. I was able to complete my master's degree FNP track in two years straight through while working full time and having two small children. Chamberlain made it possible to achieve my dreams. The program is in no way easy and you will read a lot of negative reviews about the program but if you want a program to be easy and just hand you a degree - this is not the program for you. In addition, those FNP schools online that don't require you to take exams or to be monitored on camera are gaining a reputation for poor students and poor nurse practitioners. I learned this in clinical with the stigma of online schooling, but my preceptors were beyond impressed with my preparation and knowledge that Chamberlain instilled in me. The last ten months are very hard with clinical, logging patients and keeping up with the coursework, but my instructors were NOTHING short of amazing. They were always readily available, they pushed me to learn more and pull out my best work. If it was not for these professors, I would not feel prepared like I am today. I graduated in October, took my national certification two weeks after graduation and passed on the first try! They require you to go to Chicago for a review course, and this was an exceptional opportunity not only because I learned so much, but because Dr. H. is a legend! She is fantastic to watch and it was so empowering to sit in a room with 400+ nurse practitioners! Amazing! Thank you Dr. M., Dr. W., Dr. D., Dr B. and Dr. B.. You all were my five instructors for my clinical courses and it is because of you that I write this review today! Thank you Chamberlain for empowering a young woman to achieve her dreams while still being a mom and wife. You all have met your calling as you are the definition of what an educator is and should be! In addition, the cost is about the same as a brick/mortar school and I needed the convenience to do my school work during the night after work or when kids were sleeping. Chamberlain made it possible! Thank you Chamberlain
So I decided to attend this school on the Phoenix campus. I absolutely love this school! I choose this over the community college and state university because the waiting list were so long. Every year I was waiting on the list was a year of salary that I was losing so the price of attending was well worth it. All my credits from junior college transferred so it was cheaper that way as well. Nurses at my clinical sites love chamberlain students over the other schools because we are so prepared learn so much. Highly recommend. Invest in yourself and your future, its worth it.
