"Worst school ever! They stated they are convenient to life but the new program has ruined that. I would tell anyone looking at this school to run! They do not care about their students the practicing coordinators are the worst! They are no help to the money you are spending!"

"I chose Chamberlain based on its flexibility of classes, and accessibility as I needed to work on my degree while having children. I was able to focus on school and family while obtaining my education,which would not have been feasible at a traditional school. I am grateful for the opportunity to become a FNP. I have worked very hard, and this program has allowed me to be successful at achieving my dream. So I applaud Chamberlain for charting new waters with their innovative learning experiences. If you are looking at this school, I would highly recommend it. Just know that being an excellent FNP is often up to you and how much you care about actually helping others achieve their health goals. Its not all about you and your job. So if you are highly motivated,have strong analytical skills, and care about people, by all means, go to Chamberlain, serve your community, help people heal, and enjoy the journey. If youre just looking to get more money, please dont become a FNP."

"After spending all the time and money to take the 30 credits of core classes, some of which were taught by knowledgable, committed DNPs, some not, practicum is a huge disappointment. You are ON. YOUR. OWN. and you will NOT have an advocate for any reason. No one cares if the clinical affiliation agreement terms are violated or not. And if you are mistreated, do not receive the education or time you need, that is on you. No one will speak up for you, and you are stuck with whatever your preceptor writes about you on your permanent record. Good or bad. I regret choosing Chamberlain because you are really just a number, no matter how many "helpful" programs they offer. Student Services personnel are good listeners, kind, and supportive, but basically powerless. Like I said, you're on your own. It is not in any way the same as a local university, where they can see your face..."

"Online programs are for self starters. This program gave me all the tools to complete my degree and succeed in my career. I graduated with honors and passed the boards with no problems. I feel well prepared for interviews and feel I will be highly valued as an FNP based on the education I received."

"They give you the courses, but when it comes time to do clinicals you are on your own. Have tried contacting them for help over and over. No reply or contact your local hospital. My advice is to pay more for a college or University that is linked with a local hospital."

"Chamberlain University, Family Nurse Practitioner Track has been wonderful, professors are great and the courses are challenging. The professors are engaging and ask a lot of questions. There is a lot of critical thinking skills. I definitely recommend this school."

"Finally done! Chamberlain is expensive for sure... but if you are working full time., family bread winner which was my case I would have never finished if I had to go to a brick and mortar class. They will not baby you... either do the work on your own or don't bother. Some classes are tougher than others and the instructors get tougher on you as time goes by. I have talked to brick and mortar students and I don't see any difference except you have to look for parking. I have maybe wait on the phone to solve a problem because I did have issues at times but it was always resolved once I found the right person to talk to."

"Excellent program; supportive instructors. Problem based approach. Evidenced-based practice. Encourages and motivates student learning. The program is doable for those who work full-time. The reading material is easy to comprehend, the weekly lectures summarize the assigned readings. The database library is student friendly with up-dated peer-reviewed articles."

"Very unorganized and misleading regarding the time it takes to complete. Inconsistent teaching styles made it difficult to follow expectations from class to class. No assistance with confirming clinical and I had to continuously contact them to find out the status of contracts. Had 3 different switches of practicum coordinators which caused even more delays. So many delays I had to sit out a turn because the contract for my 2nd clinical rotation was completed but not the 1 for the 1st one. Would choose differently if I had it to do over."

"I've been relatively pleased with the program. It provides the flexibility I need in order to achieve this. It has all of the issues of any on line program. It's hard to feel connected to the school and the faculty, and you get out as much as you're willing to put in. There is very little to no personal instruction or feedback, but the material is there if you choose to put the time in. Finding a preceptor is really stressful, but this is the same for most programs now."

"As a newer program it definitely had some kinks but overall I feel I have earned a quality education working around my work and family schedule. Just like ANY school, brick and mortar or online, you get what you put into it! I felt like my learning process was an ongoing collaboration between the class work and practicum experiences. I know one big frustration for some of my classmates was finding practicum sites. This is not a unique problem to Chamberlain. Every FNP program has this issue as students are flooding into programs. In the end... I am responsible for my own learning and my own knowledge, as in any program."

"I was very pleased with my education at Chamberlain. I have my BSN and 2 MSN degrees from this school and I highly recommend it for anyone needing flexibility. The online programs are tough but they teach you discipline, which is very important in this field. You have to be focused and ready to learn. I felt very prepared when I graduated and was able to pass my FNP board exam on the first try 2 weeks after graduation. I now have a great job with excellent pay and benefits. I would not have been able to make it this far without this educational opportunity. I am a proud Chamberlian graduate and highly recommend this school!"

"I attended Chamberlain for my undergraduate degree and liked it so much that I'm now back for my masters degree as a family nurse practitioner. This graduate degree program isn't for the faint of heart, or for those who want to have their hand held. This is a challenging program, and rightfully so."

"Great school! Great instructors! There are some issues with finding preceptors for clinical, but I've heard that every single FNP program, including on-campus FNP programs, has this problem. Greatly satisfied with this school and would (and already did) this school to many of my co-workers. Some of them already started their journey with CCN."

"I love this school. There are so many negative comments from people but they are all personal opinions. I love that school is flexible for those of us who are working and have families. I feel that this school provides us with the sufficient knowledge to be able to practice in my clinical setting. Yes, we have to find our clinical preceptors but that is okay because after all its a masters program there will be no one to hold your hand and nor should you expect it. I like that the online setting is very much organized and if you need help there is help available. This school is not for those people who think that they don't have to work for their degree because you get what you invest in this education. I definitely recommend this school."

"Chamberlain online allowed me what other brick and mortar schools could not. Flexibility. Otherwise my dream of obtaining a masters would not be within reach. Was the studies easy? No most certainly not. You must be dedicated and devoted to spending the time required to review and learn the material as with any other school. Did I have any issues. No more than I would have at any other school. Some instructors were awesome, others were not. That goes along with any school you attend. I am very pleased with my education, although it has been a long and time consuming 2 1/2 years. I have learned so much and I am grateful for the opportunity provided by Chamberlain to pursue my masters."

"Worst school ever "Beware", I wish I read the reviews prior to attending. The program focus on busy work, the professors are terrible. Chamberlain student service does not help with clinical site allocation. This school only focus on money, does not provide any student support. The lessons are not interactive."

"I personally have had no issues with Chamberlain. I did my bsn through them and am currently in my FNP program with them. Who ever say this is a rip off school is so not true. I have never been over charged and knew right away my fee's that needed to be paid right up front. This program is good for those of us who have to work and like any program that is online you have to work for your grade. The bsn program was a doable program but the FNP program is a much harder program but so worth the time and the money invested for a brighter future. To all those nay sayers just don't listen to them after all that is their personal opinion as to how they feel about the school based upon their negative experience with them."
