"Excellent program with very knowledgeable, well educated instructors. Problem-based approach of teaching, drawing upon personal experiences. Evidenced-based practice was strongly impressed upon. I felt very motivated to learn and am now in the Doctor of Nursing Practice program through Chamberlain College. I have worked full-time during this process, and while it is difficult at times, I have be able to be successful. I would highly recommend this program to any nurse who is interested in furthering their degree. It won't always be easy, but it WILL always be worth it!"

"CCN is not the school if you are looking for am online college. There is no consistency in the program. I had financial aid and the school is sending me a bill and requesting that I pay it in full before I can start my next class. The practicum coordinator is a joker who does not return calls or responds to emails. Forget about talking to the dean, Distler; he does not help either. There are instructors who wants to correct you on APA formatting when they themselves do not know how to format in APA. You have to find your own clinical site. You do not get any help from the school. There is also inconsistency with the requirements for the clinical sites. I had to sit out three semesters because I was told by the practicum coordinator that the sites I found were not appropriate even though these were private medical practices. However some students were approved sites for pain management and a physical therapy. If you are looking for online courses do not consider Chamberlain College of Nursing. Run as far as you can from them. To add insult to injury I graduated this March and my name was not even on the program."

"I have nothing but good things to say about this school. I graduated in Dec. 2016 w my masters in FNP and the school has been very helpful with all of the information needed to provide to both AANP and BON. I have continued on with this school for my DNP because I appreciate how helpful they have been and how organized the online setting is."

"This program is solely out to make as much money, with very little explanation for what the fees are for. They don't send you a bill to let you know when you have a balance, and if it isn't paid in 30 days they send it into a payment plan which they charge you interest on all without telling you that any of that is happening. The class work is easy enough, but it is likely that you are just paying your way to a degree. I wish I could go back in time and go through another school. Biggest disappointment that I could have expected. They are very helpful when you are doing all of the application but once you are into a program all of the nice people and helpful people seem to disappear."

"I finished my BSN and I am now in the MSN FNP program. I have learned so much from this school. Why? Because they skip the nonsense and the fluff and allow me to focus on what is really important. As a working nurse I need concise clear cut work assignments. I appreciate the reminders by email about small things. They want you to succeed. It is not easy, they treat you like a competent nurse that has critical thinking skills. They do not bog you down with nonsense. Every assignment has what you must know to be a top notch professional. I love this school. I hope I make it through the MSN, it is fairly expensive. I tried a public University and they were so disorganized and unprofessional it was a disgrace. They did not care at all."

"I received my BSN through this school and was pleased, and I'm enjoying the FNP classes. I do wish they were faster at working out site contracts for what is paid by students for services, but I am happy with the education received so far. If you are expecting help with finding a preceptor you will not get that here."

Highly skeptical of the positive reviews - 8/21/2016
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016
"Prospective students of Chamberlain pay attention to the negative reviews on this site; they will provide a much more realistic portrayal of life as a Chamberlain/Devry student. First off, Chamberlain is expensive compared to other schools, even when considering the BSN-MSN bridge programs. The financial aid department excels at making costly errors and will do more to make situations worse than to help resolve the issues. I received more than one large and unexpected bill because of errors made by student finance. Also, do not expect grades to reflect work relevant to course topics. Grading and instruction are often obviously copied and pasted and will mostly pertain to APA formatting. The practicum selection process is far more cumbersome than it needs to be, and like student finance, incompetence is rampant. If you do not mind jumping through needless hoops, being treated like a meal ticket, and waiting hours on hold while the most obnoxious hold music of all time screams in your ears, then Chamberlain is the school for you!"

"I actually graduated from Chamberlain with my BSN as a blended program and am finding my masters as an online program. It is consistent in terms of program quality. Some classes are very hard, some are easier, some instructors are amazing, and some repeat the same syllabus year after year. They are more strict (as they should be) in the graduate program as we are preparing for masters level career. I passed boards as an undergrad with 75 questions. I knew my material well and seemed to do better than my peers that didn't go to chamberlain. However, just like any school, what you put in is what you get out. The only bummer is it can be very difficult to find a preceptor for your clinical sites in the masters program. I wish there was a better set up or network for that."

"Overall great experience for all of my nursing degrees. Education is current and financial/student services helped time and time again. The clinical coordinators leave some to be desired but clinical placement is a sore spot in every program. Highly recommend it"

"As a current student of CCN, I have received the most amazing experience. The instructors are interactive, and interested in the students growth. The curriculum supports a masters level education. You are expected to physically demonstrate your knowledge base, and assessment skills in a clinical setting with multiple educators. CCN has exceed my expectations after receiving my BSN at a brick and mortar institution, I am elated with my online education."
