"Chamberlain has been my favorite University to attend to date; and there have been a few. Chamberlain has always made accessing and completing content easy and when the pandemic hit Chamberlain stepped up to the plate and went BIG. Chamberlain altered the course assignments to better fit the busy schedules and crazy lives of us healthcare workers. I really enjoy the change to discussions that no longer require initial post by Wednesday because that was a challenge when my job does not allow for set scheduling. I thank Chamberlain for what it has done for me, and although I have not needed to utilize it, Chamberlain ASPIRE. It is amazing that Chamberlain cares about our mental health when my employer does not even have this kind of access for us when we are at our lowest times. Thank you Chamberlain!"

"Chamberlain University was my first online course experience and it has been rewarding! There have been many times I have reached out to the student advisers for assistance and the process has been amazing each time. Registering me for upcoming courses, discussing tuition reimbursement, payment options, the accommodations have been outstanding! The workload has been manageable being a full time RN, running a busy household with two young boys - one being virtual currently. Highly recommend!"

"Chamberlain has been wonderful to work with. My writing skills have improved. The teachers in the nursing classes are very easy to communicate with. The registration department is wonderful to help set up classes. Whenever I do make a call to student services they check that all my information is up to date. I enjoy learning from the class and sharing experiences. I was so nervous when I started because I had never taken classes on-line but that has all changed. I have been a nurse almost 30 years and going back to school was scary but it is turning out well."

"Chamberland is the best decision of my life. Going to school has never been the same, the professors are very helpful and understanding. I work full time and I am a full time student, however, dont feel overwhelmed. All of my ADN courses transferred over and I am able to earn my BSN in 9 months and if I was not working I could probably do it in 6 months. I am happy to have chosen Chamberlain."

"As a military spouse stationed over seas I looked for a fun time online BSN program and found it at Chamberlain. I found the finance department for student loans easy and helpful when I was ready to apply for student loan. The courses were challenging , and even though I have been an RN for over 20 years I learned something in every course. and was challenged by my instructors to learn beyond the basic assignment.My professors were responsive, and provided clear comments on assignments for what I did well and where I could approve. I was able to transfer many of my college credits from my ADN which allowed me to finish my BSN in less than a year going full time ( 2 courses every 8 weeks). This program does require you to be organized, motivated, and to utilize professional ethics. I would recommend the program and think that it was worth not only the time but the money to have the flexibility while living over seas. I am in the process of exploring their masters program simply because I feel like my experience with my BSN was exactly as they described it to me and the instructors were attentive and available."

"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 has been the best decision I could have ever made. I am married, I work full time and have a 12 year old and 4 year old. I did not intend on attending chamberlain. It started off as an inquiry into the degree requirements. With that I was contacted and walked hand and hand through the admissions process and the registration process. I could not believe how helpful they were. Then when I started taking classes the professors were extremely concerned in my success. I am on track to graduating in 2019 and cant wait. It has been a great experience so far."

"I just completed Chamberlain College of Nursing (now Chamberlain University) RN to BSN program. I had to take 7 nursing classes plus a sociology class called Diversity in the Professions because I have a BS in another field. Each class is 8 weeks long. The basic structure is a discussion topic each week (post a reply and then reply to 2 other people) and 3 projects (usually an APA formatted paper, a PowerPoint, and another project). It was not hard and was very manageable with working full-time and being a busy mother. The program is extremely flexible. I took my classes over a 4 year period (2 classes a year). The only downside is cost - a 3 hour class is around $2,000 and a 4 hour class is around $2,500. If your hospital has tuition reimbursement, as mine does, it wasn't a problem."

"I started in 2016. When i started, I was not in the best health but I had this person that helped me get past being sick and to turn my homework on time. I feel blessed to be a student at this University. A very special friend of mine started out as my admissions director. She encouraged, supported me, , called when I was in the hospital. She directed me on who to talk to and when. Each department is incredibly helpful, no matter what. I cannot find anything bad to say. The only faculty I had a problem with was my statistics instructor. He didnt help much. Otherwise, the faculty are great! Please take a look at this school, and the faculty and staff , it will be the best move you could ever make."

"I am currently a student at chamberlain. I have attended a few different colleges, about 6 years of college education, prior to chamberlain and decided to go here due to the fact they accepted the most of my credits from prior education. I have about a year left of my program and I can say I am highly disappointed with their program. Most of the professors are very entitled and do not treat the students as they should. Most of the time during lecture ramble about information not included on the exam. The professors are quick to stick to the rules in the handbook when it benefits them but not when they are in the wrong. Most of them are not good professors as most of the information that is tested is self taught. I have only have had 2 professors who I would qualify as good teachers and seem to understand what it is like being a student in an accelerated program. As some of the other reviews mentioned, having a job and being a student at chamberlain is close to impossible. With the amount of word required, along with the frequency and high amount of material on the exams, making time is often quite hard. For what a student pays for chamberlain, I feel it is not worth the money. There are little resources available for a student, yes they have a "library" but it is quite small and one private room. I have been working in the health care field for about a decade and a lot of the stuff that is taught, I have never saw a nurse perform or use the information we are required to know. The thing that pushed me over the edge to write this review is my most current experience with some of the professors and higher ups. I requested to be excused from lab to carry out some of my families wishes and it was denied. The instructors at chamberlain always say how being compassionate and caring is so important for a nurse. Well it went that long ago when they were nurses as well and somewhere along the line they forgot they are still supposed to have those qualities. Now for all the negative things I have experienced, there have been a few positives. The people who work in the student advisor section are always quick to help and try to make things work for the student. And those few professors who I qualify as good, did in fact go the extra mile and helped out as much as possible. Whether it be making extra worksheets for each student to use or making themselves available for the students if they need tutoring. So those people saved the review from all one stars. So if you are a student reading my review, I highly encourage you to investigate other nursing schools and make sure you read all the reviews about a school. It will be well worth your time"
