"Worst school ever. Stay away from these people they are put for your money not your academic well being. Makes changes unprecedented and very unstable. Teachers are sometimes reachable however not happy when students do so. They are not interested in your career or what you are here for but your money."

"PLEASE, take everything Im about to say into strong consideration before making any decisions towards this school. This school is absolutely atrocious. The same way they weed you in is the same way theyre going to weed you out. The faculty and admission committee start off by feeding their applicants false hope and being overly nice. They lure students into applying to the school by promising a false vision of the education theyre going to receive. The professors are absolutely the worst professors Ive ever dealt with in my life. They have no desire to teach or help their students, they fail consistently at doing their jobs correctly, and theyre some of the laziest human beings Ive ever encountered. Lectures consist of 3-4 hours of reading pre-made PowerPoints that arent even created by the professors. The books, as well as the notes provided in class, hardly relate to the exams. In addition, the exams consist of some of the most foolish questions ive ever seen. There are no study guides, no curves, no extra credit, or anything of that sort, which is understandable but ONLY if the students are being given a proper education (which they are not). Emailing a professor or calling the school is a game of whos going to take the longest to answer? Ive went days without getting an email or a call back. Ive dealt with situations where the advisor was on vacation or away, preventing me from getting the help I need. In addition to that, the school is severely understaffed. You get the same awful 2/3 professors the entire time youre there. There is MAYBE 1 good professor, but I promise you, the rest are downright disrespectful, and are only at the school to collect a check. The worst part about ALL of this is how often they flash their degree in your face and act entitled as if theyre better than you because theyre nurses and youre not. And these same Professors doing this, are the same Professors that walk into class every day as if they hate their lives. The program is accelerated for absolutely no reason. There are programs out there that take less time to complete and arent accelerated. The school is also expensive for nothing. PLEASE, i could go on and on, do not attend this school. I will swear on my own life, that no student here is proud of the decision they made to come to this school.I want to add some very crucial information. Going into this school I was a graduate from Wayne State University with a 3.84 gpa, a major in biology, and a minor is psychology. I chose this school initially over other schools because it was somewhat accelerated and because they were so quick to accept me. I had some of the worst days of my entire life in this program, feeling lonely, feeling as if I wasnt good enough, feeling as if I was a failure. My friends who attended other nursing programs were doing just fine, while I was beating myself up and putting my health at risk just to manage passing some of the courses from this awful school. Last year i made the best decision of my life. I decided to not let this school waste my precious time, and money, and made the decision to leave. Not long after I applied to the University of Detroit Mercys Nursing Program, and Madonnas as well. I was accepted to both. Here I am, halfway through Madonnas program, getting the best education of my life. The program is in no way easy, but its definitely A LOT better than what I was dealt with at Chamberlain. I regret not coming here from the start, but I guess you live an you learn. PLEASE, dont make the mistake i made, along with many other students, in attending Chamberlain. Apply anywhere else. Keep trying to get into a better school, and dont give up until you do. Never limit yourselves to a low standard because of self doubt or because of people getting in your ears. I want no one to deal with what I dealt with, so learn from MY mistakes. Every classmate I had at Chamberlain absolutely hated it. Days of witnessing my classmates crying, complaining, or contemplating their futures. All because of the awful education the school had to offer. It wasnt until i went to a different school when I realized how big of a difference there is in receiving a proper education and a really bad one."

"I have a year left in the program and I am trying very hard to not just walk away. My cohort are basically guinea pigs for the school's update and I would not recommend this school for anyone. It is a lot of money that is just not worth it even though it is a fast track program, there are more than one. False promises and horrible teaching along with bad advisors that do not help. I wouldn't even give this school a star if that was an option."

"Got my bsn degree 4 yrs ago and i strongly recommend their program if ure working full time, with kids (or not) and considering doing online. My advisers and profs were always reachable and approachable. Paperworks and required readings can be indeed demanding but that how it should be anyway."

"I love that this school stick to their curriculum and schedule. If you have a problem you could always send an email to your counselor and receive an answer by the next business day. he reviewed my transcript and I followed the schedule that was sent to me and everything was okay. The professors are very fair. Do not wait to reach out to them if you are having any difficulty with the course material. They will try their very best to assist you. Good luck"

"Great school! I would highly reccomend Chamberlain if youre a working RN trying to obtain your BSN. First off, they are so flexible. They know we have lives. They know things happen. I love the fact that I was able to take consecutive semesters off in a row with no penalty or questions about it. The professors are great and knowledgeable, and the work loads are manageable. Also the sign up process was super easy and my mentor who was assigned to me helped me *tremendously* through the entire admissions process. I needed to sign up for school ASAP or else I wouldve been let go by my hospital (Im under contract), so I was able to start classes a week after I signed up, and was able to keep my job! I will be graduating probably December 2019. Maybe January 2020 depending. 3-4 more classes and Im done!"

"I have never written a review before but I feel I must inform anyone who is searching for information on the Troy MI campus to not go to school here. I could have never imagined a school like this one. They do not care about you AT ALL. As others have said, they drop you like its nothing and like youre no one. This school is a nightmare. Its unfortunate that Im already half way done and now feel as if I just have to stick it out."

"Chamberlain has an excellent RN-BSN program. It is challenging but very doable. They have some excellent professors that are eager to help their students succeed. I would recommend Chamberlain to anyone who is considering returning to school. I am glad I chose Chamberlain!"

"The BSN program was online and easy to manage with a full time job. I was hesistant but the teachers were understanding. Grading was posted in a timely fashion. No extra credit. If you take the time with assignments you will do fine! Rarely any quizzes/tests which is a plus. You can email/text/call the professor for questions. You can try to have classes with your friends is available."
