"This school made me feel like a prisoner. They were overly strict and quick to drop you from the program, to the point where I couldnt sleep at night and had terrible anxiety about possibly waking up late for a class. What made matters worse is how unorganized and not on the same page the staff were. They experimented with our graduating class by trying new systems such as implementing rubrics that made no sense at times. A system called ATI testing was thrown at us in the middle of our program. This was fine except the instructors had no clue how this system worked; so of course they couldnt assist us in understanding how to implement it because this was a requirement for assignments now. The staff could care less about you especially the ones in simulation lab. The deans and professors scream how much of an advocate they are for you, but they really are more of a money hungry school looking for the next student to drop so they can revenue more money by making students repeat courses. Luckily I finished, but a few people from my study group were dropped like flies for minor things. Minor things such as: walking m in more than 5 minutes late to a lab class or a clinical, not completing an assignment by the deadline, or wearing the wrong color socks to a clinical (because the school prefered white socks as part of the dress code). I would never recommend this school (particularly the Tinley Park location)to my worst enemy. Take your $60,000 plus somewhere else. The stress and anxiety isnt worth it."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"Applied for 2018 January session for the pearland,TX campus be careful about attending this college. They try to persuade you to join with "low costs" but I just received my estimated financial plan for the semester and it is 725$ Per credit hour. The application packet has just been lies and whenever I talked to my admissions advisers or student support advisers they would not include crucial details. For example after a background check of 200$ they did not include the detail that you would have to pay 20% of your current semester as a prepayment to actually register for classes. In my case I was looking forward to joining this school on my first few visits but slowly became more skeptical over their honesty over my next few visits."

"This University actually cares about their students well being. From the initial conversation to the financial aid department, every person made sure all my questions were answered and I received all the support I needed. They do have 21 campuses around the country for those interested in being a nurse, but the RN-BSN is all online which was exactly what I was looking for. My credits transferred from my Associates Degree so with the discount the tuition was about $20k for the whole program. The professors are really responsive and the whole program can be completed in 1 year. I highly recommend attending here for your BSN. You will not regret it!"

"Please do yourself a favor and stay away from this school. All they care about is money and the professors are in on it together and only do and care about what benefits the school as far as financials are concerned. It is a for profit school and the CCNE seriously needs to take a look at their practices. They are cult like and will fail 4.0 students to get them to repeat classes to make more money, or fail students to adjust cohort sizes because they do not have enough teachers so they spread the cohort out by failing some students so they start at a new cohort. The teachers treat students like absolute dog c***. Please please do yourself and stay far away and do not make the same mistake I did. I attend the Troy campus in Michigan. Absolutely a disgrace they call themselves a nursing school institution. The professors there only read slides off that other teachers have made from different institutions. They CANNOT teach."

"I'm about to complete my degree at the end of December. I took 2 classes at a time, and I would have been done in a year had I not taken 16 weeks off. But that's the beauty of it; it's flexible, so if you need a break, take it! They have excellent support for tutoring and even have support for non- school issues if problems arise that interfere with school."
