"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."

Degree: Nurse Practitioner (Family)
Graduation Year: 2017
"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."

"This program is continually trying to challenge their students and push them to pursue the most appropriate learning environments for their learning. As a distance learning student I was grateful for the guidance and support towards my masters degree."
