"I knew that I would have to find my own preceptor site, but I never imagined the lack of coordination and support from this school. I have been trying for months to go back to clinicals, but with absolutely no luck. The clinical site required a list of items from the school (proof of good standing, insurance, etc), every time I call the school I am told that they do not communicate with the site, and I am responsible to complete these item. So, I have tried to field it myself, but the school is more concerned with their own list of requirements. I am incredibly disapointed."

"I am proud to be a Chamberlain student. The curriculum is comprehensive and the future curriculum builds upon the previous. There are many types of learning which speak to all learning styles. The professors are all willing to help and support your education any way they can. their feedback on assignments and thought-provoking questions increase learning and application of learned knowledge. The advisors, student services, and other ancillary staff address issues promptly and work quickly to impart an appropriate resolution. I started with Chamberlain for my BSN-MSN Bridge. I have my BSN and I will complete my studies for my MSN in one session, then on to my Practicum. I highly recommend Chamberlain for secondary education."

"I am 2-courses away from a MSN degree but may not be able to finish because Chamberlain will not let me enroll unless I have a clinical site, which I have not been able to get because Chamberlain does not help you find sites. Then, when you think you might have found a site on your own (CVS Minute Clinic) they denied me as I have not done a pediatric rotation, which is extremely hard to find on your own. I have been sitting it out for 3 months now and the more time I am away the harder it will be to finish. Chamberlain does not care about their students success, they will step over you and keep moving to process more students to enter their program and collect private school fees. The classes are online, and if you are struggling the response is just " figure it out". You pay high fees to learn on your own and find your own clinical sites."

"DO NOT ATTEND this school. If you do not have a very substantial and broad APRN or MD network in order to assist for clinical placement, do not even think about attending here. They advertise a "preceptor matching service" but it is nothing more than YOU cold calling places and finding a place on your own. I am still waiting for this service. It is a very frustrating situation to find yourself in. They will not provide you with a list of who others may have used in your area (that would help at least a little bit). I wish I hadn't gone here and went to a traditional school that has been established in my area. Some offices told me that they only work with certain programs and that basically my program was not reputable enough. These kind of rebuffs are enough to make you feel like you made the dumbest and costliest decision ever! If I had to do it over, I would not have chosen this school. If you have a choice, only go to this school as last resort."

"Constantly changing rules, even before COVID. The instructors I had were all employed elsewhere, so they really had no time for explaining or teaching. When I tried to use ASPIRE, left voice mail and got a call back 2 weeks later and was offered appointment for 4 weeks later. If I had a question , I was shuffled from one department to the next. Usually took months to answer me. Clinical hours and COMPLIO was a nightmare, although I stayed up to date on everything, the school did not. Was too much added stress. Does not teach to the boards. Just wants your money. Does not care, false advertising. I would not recommend this place."

"This school is beyond frustrating. From holding grades and practicum hours hostage to passing the buck. They just want your money and do not help with anything. I even needed to use the ASPIRE services only to be forwarded to a voice mail where no one returned my call for almost a month! This school is a joke. Totally regret it."

"I am reading all of the negative reviews on here and am honestly blown away. I have attended Chamberlain for 2 degrees and both experiences couldn’t have been better. I received my BSN in 2014, and because I had such a good experience, I chose Chamberlain for my MSN as well. I recently graduated and am waiting to take my FNP certification exam soon. Chamberlain is very flexible and is designed for working people. There are no set log in times and no live lectures, but instructors and tutors are always available if needed. When my son was ill in the hospital, my instructor had no problem giving me an extension on the week’s assignment. When the pandemic hit, they relaxed and reduced class assignment requirements to make things easier on us. During my capstone course in my MSN program, they gave us access to an absolutely wonderful review course. I can’t say enough about Chamberlain. I feel very prepared with my education and am very thankful to Chamberlain. It isn’t the cheapest school in the world but it is worth it, and you do get a discount if you attend again as an alumni. If I return to school for my DNP, Chamberlain will definitely be my go to, and I would recommend this school to anyone."

"Having read the reviews prior to attending, I was leary about the education I’d get from the online environment. Looking back, I found all of the classes beneficial - contributing immensely to the goals I had set for myself. Yes, there is a lot of self-paced learning but that is what is expected with this type of program. The discussions, projects, and papers required critical thinking skills and application of your own experiences. If you are not self motivated and lack time management skills, this environment may not be the best fit for you. I recommend this program for other life-long learners!"

"Horrible school. I can’t even elaborate enough on this. I’ll be in debt until I die and I taught myself the entire time. Teachers don’t reply. In my BSN I had a harassing teacher that would call me and email me several times a day, it was so concerning that I dropped the class and still had to pay $1400. It was ok in the beginning when I did my BSN. My MSN teachers currently are horrible. My class discussion asked me to provide my place of employment (specific name) AND city. I did not because I felt that was unreasonable to ask students and unsafe- also omitting that information does not change the fact I know or don’t know the material. Because I didn’t want to feel unsafe giving my specific city and employer name I received 20% off the discussion. This is just one example of the atrocious things Chamberlain does. I will never recommend this school."

"I am in my last 5 courses to complete my FNP with Chamberlain University and have had a wonderful experience. I completed my BSN in Atlanta, Georgia with Chamberlain University in 2018 then decided to pursue my FNP. I have never had a problem with the courses, Staff, or clinicals. The cost is reasonable compared to other private schools. I am in the military and travel every 3 years which sets Chamberlain aside from any other school, because they have so many branches across the United States. Classes are demanding as expected, but it is no different than any other MSN program. The MSN-FNP builds on your knowledge and leadership skills. I look forward to starting my clinicals next session. I hope this will help many make a decision on attending a great school. I hate studying and I tend to procrastinate, but some how I have made it through with All "As and Bs.""

"Incredibly inconsistent with instructors and grading. Will consistently drop the ball each class w/ new tech, policy, credentials, etc. If you do have a problem, the staff does not care. This is a degree mill and they want your money. Very unprofessional top to bottom. They will make a lot of mistakes and it is up to you to fix their mistakes. You will never get a free pass if you make a mistake. Save your time, money and future headaches. Don't go to Chamberlain."

"Hello Prospective Students What can I say that's not already been said about Chamberlain. I completed my undergraduate course at Chamberlain and now continuing with my Masters in Nursing Educator Track. That should say that I found Chamberlain College to be most helpful during my transition. Can't say I would do it all over but I have no regrets. It's a great college and faculty are outstanding!"

"To Whom It May Concern, I would like for you to know the caliber of an educator you have on your staff roster. Dr. Susan Waltz, contacted me on the day my father passed 11/6/2019 to reach out and answer any questions that I may have had about the course NR 501 Theortical Basis of Advanced Nursing. I had to share with my professor that at that particular time I could not answer any question she may have had because of the news I was just given. Dr. Waltz expressed her sympathy and condelescense to me and my family. From that day to this one she has text me, emailed me, call me and offered words of strength and encouragement. Not one time did she say I need you to drop this class, instead I informed her that I would be attempting to return after my fathers funeral but I could not give her the exact day of return. Dr. Waltz continued to reach out to me and share with me her journey with her family and her father. I had a good feeling about this program. I have been able to pay as I go with the payment plan based on my situation with my father and his additional responsiblities. I have been supported with the instant return feedback text, email or phone call. Most importantly my professor did not give up on me!! She made me feel valued, supported and thankful that I had her as my professor during this time of change in my life. I MADE A PROMISE TO MY FATHER TO FINISH THIS TIME AND BECAUSE OF DR. SUSAN WALTZ I WILL!! Thank You Rhonda Johnson Terrell Nursing Administration"

"Initially I had some complications navigating their student portal. After preview week I had information overload. During my first class we lost our housing lease and I had issues with time management and submitting a few assignments on time which resulted in a C. The next class I received a B. This was not to their satisfaction so I had to appeal 3 times with the guidance of student services and submit supporting documentation. I received inappropriate comments on all 3 denials such as I lack the skill set for the program. My grades were the highest in the class aside from the late submissions due to abrupt change in residence. They also sent me an entire academic record that belonged to someone else attached to my 1st and 2nd denial. At this point I feel like they just took my money and don’t even stand by their own standards of practice. If you want to be treated like a number, this school would be appropriate."

"Bad school, horrible,do not go there this is an honest warning. You will not learn anything. If you care about your future and patients this is the worst place you could earn a degree from. Go to a real college and get a real degree so you can treat your patients with honor and dignity"

"Horrible school. One professor in particular is very dishonest and has her own agenda. I would NEVER recommend this school to anyone!!! School will NOT help you find clinical sites and there are students currently sitting out because they can't find a site. Subpar education at its best."

"I've been at Chamberlain University for my BSN and now for my graduate degree, and the result is chaos. At the beginning it was ok but they are looking for you to fail. Recently I was in the of the class and the software they use to make you take to test and exams did not work as it should making me lose point to the point of failing. There were three exams and in two of those exams, the system did not work properly. I contacted the student services, professor, supervisor of the professor and they all say the couldn't do anything. One of the exams was almost 200 points which took me from B+ to F. None of them were worried about my grade. My advice for those looking for a school that actually cares for the student and actually have tools that work is to look away in another direction. This school is not serious and is expensive as well. If I could give some sort of Negative star I will do it. -10 no professionalism nor work ethics. This is the worst school ever"

"I have loved Chamberlain University. I like the asynchronous online classes and no group work. It means I can do school around my full time life. It requires a lot of writing and reflecting but this has made me into a better more articulate nurse. The teachers have been responsive to questions and given feedback that has helped me grow. This school was by far better than I prior school I attended which definitely had an unrealistic amount of work. I feel for the right and driven person, this University is really great! I got my BSN from them. I will be starting into their DNP track in the summer. Thanks Chamberlain for making this possible!"

"Excellent and professional college! The professor's have all be very kind and knowledgeable. I am a working mom who home schools and have found the program to be very manageable. The classes have consisted of discussions and around 4 projects. The projects are usually research papers. The college does an excellent job at thoroughly describing what is expected in the projects. Love Chamberlain. I graduated with my BSN from there and am currently enrolled in there MSN program."
