"The negatives reviews are true.!!!!! Please stay away. Even if you are on your death bed with all the doctors notes you can get, you might as Well forget it. Bad grading , biased and expensive. Whatever you say over the phone is being written down word for word and communicated with your professor..lol. Professors are not understanding and rude, will give you 24 hours to do one weeks work plus paper and discussion after you get out of the hospital. . Then , on top of that, they refuse to review your grades. When you call and want to dispute, they tell you it's up to the professors discretion. What!. You don't even learn anything. Some professor did not even respond to my discussion for 6 weeks. Am like how exactly am I suppose to learn anything? . They will admit anyone and anything from anywhere. Trust me.when you get in, you will fight for your money, savings and start paying that student loan back before you even reach 40 percent of the course. Word to the wise. If you don't believe me, go try and see."

"I attended this Chamberlain for my BSN and was very satisfied. I started taking my Masters and I am not happy at all. My teacher was very unreasonable with my grading and discussion. They only want you to use there scholarly articles which would take hours to find, to fit your papers. The professor seems like she was targeting me to fail.They do not let you pick what professor you want to take for this reason. I am not happy with this program and I am at the beginning. I heard they change the curriculum to weed people out. Getting your Masters should not be this intense nor stressful, it should feel like an accomplishment. I am not going to continue with chamberlain. My professor was on rate my professor as being on of the worst professors. A lot of the students did drop out of my class in the beginning and I should have followed. Please try another school"

Degree: Nurse Practitioner (Family)

"I was enrolled in the FNP program. The curriculum skips from non track courses to track courses. I paid $126 to have fingerprinting and background check completed. The background check came back, but the fingerprinting took longer I was dropped from my course d/t something out of my control. The track course that I was dropped from did not include patient care all theory and the next course is a non track course. I paid $3000 for the class and I will not get that back. This college is a rip off!!! I would not suggest applying. No college that I looked at makes you take a track course in the middle of a curriculum then goes back to non track courses."

"Program changes frequently. Adding requirements that involve travel with short notice. Very expensive. New requirement involves a mandatory travel to Chicago for an intensive review. Also added new requirement of browser lockdown and webcam for exams mid program."

"This is the worst school I have ever been to. Do not go to CHAMBERLAIN for your degree, the professors will fail you because of your review and tell your clinical to fail you because it is okay. I am doing FNP and if I know what I know now I would not have attended this school."

"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."
