"The program when I entered was a new program for Chamberlain and, as expected, had a few bumps in the road. Through student feedback and some changes, vast improvements were seen in regards to clinical. I was aware from the start I would need to find my own clinical site and was fine with that and was able to have my sites approved without a lot of trouble (the red tape is on both the site side and the school). The online learning environment allowed me to complete work on my own schedule and provided me the resources I needed and a solid foundation to build on."

"I have no problem with the program itself. My issues lie with the coordination of practicum and the absurdity of time it takes to move things along. Students having to sit out sessions due to "legalities" of paperwork despite being turned in on time is frustrating. This directly impacted the education process. However , there are changes being attempted so that is good. The case studies are relevant although full of typos and at times missing information. Example: patient complains of left ankle injury, left ankle is wrapped, yet physical exam reveals abnormalities of the right ankle. Seriously. After time you just move along and deal with this. At the end of the day, you get out of what you put into your education. It's my opinion you have to study more than what is provided in class BUT that is with ANY program. I do appreciate the flexible class structure."

"The support staff and instructors are all focused on helping students to be successful in attaining their degree. I have been very satisfied with the format, instructor involvement, and instructor feedback. The student services department is very helpful and able to answer all questions and help with whatever is needed. My practicum coordinator is very knowledgeable and helpful in approving my practicum sites and making sure all requirements are met."

"I worked hard & followed the syllabus as closely as possible. Completing classes online is difficult but this program keeps you interactive and deadlines for assignments are straightforward and realistic. CCN's library & resources were very impressive. It takes a little time to realize all that they have available in their student resources but it is wise to get acquainted with it early on because it will save you so much time when searching for EBP. I felt prepared coming out of the program. CCN offers a review course at the end of their program. It not only prepares you for boards but also in daily practice with utilization of practice guidelines and EBP. As with anything, you get out of it what you put into it. I had a job offer prior to graduation and have accepted a position!!"

"Pros- Instructors are great and provide excellent feedbacks. I've learned a lot and enjoying being able to learn in an online environment that is flexible to my schedule. Weekly case studies are challenging but help so much with clinicals and for future practice. Cons- Need to find own clinical sites which is a difficult process, however, most schools require the same."

"It is a great school. I have found it to be much more organized then the private school where I received my ADN. It requires a lot of hard work. Having the ability to self study is important in an online program. Instructors and staff are all profession, friendly, and helpful."

"I received my BSN in 2010 from CCN-St.Louis and decided to return in 2016 for my FNP. My decision to return was based on the positive experiences during the BSN program. The MSN is a bit different as I didn't have the option of going to classes on campus but I will say CCN has given me the necessary tools to still be successful in my journey of seek a graduate degree. You get out what you put into an online education and you have to be prepared to take accountability for your progression and advancement to becoming a knowledgeable APRN. I wish we had more assistance finding preceptors but that seems to be the general consensus for NP students in most programs."

"The case studies really help to grasp what goes on in the real world, applying the new knowledge being taught. With the focus on case study discussions instead of cramming for exams , it's helping me learn in a whole new way. The professors are professional and the help desk is helpful! The courses are accelerated, so be ready!"

"There were some inconsistencies with requirements along the way, but overall it was a great program and I felt very well prepared for certification and practice. The clinical courses did a great job of implementing case studies that were applicable to practice, and the capstone board review course was fantastic!"

"Do not attend this school! Worse mistake I ever did was start this program. You basically teach yourself while they take your money. Teachers do not offer feedback and there are no tests or quizzes so you basically are doing case studies that require looking up evidence based articles that take up time you could use for real studying! Finding a clinical site is up to as well as doing the practium coordinators job, too much time doing the school's job while they over charge you for a sub par education. CCN actually allows people who cheat to stay in the program, I know first hand! I sent an email to an instructor and the dean because I saw a student copied an article word for word in a discussion post and nothing was done. That student is still in my class! This is the type of student representing this school! So wish I had left and transferee but no other school would accept my credits and I was already in the clinical portion of the program. Run from CCN!"

"Love this program and I continue to learn and grow everyday. The case study model provides a continuous learning experience and great interaction with other students and the instructors. This program is challenging but worth the challenge and has greatly prepared me for my practicum experience. I already have a job offer before graduation."

"I have 3 more classes to go and I must say I am learning tons of information. Although generally a new program, I feel that Chamberlain is giving us what we need to be entry level FNPs. They are frequently making changes that reflect on the feedback of the students. We currently have a certification class that was being given in our final course but that have changed. Now we are getting access to those q bank questions earlier which allows us to be better prepared. We have heard back from students who have graduated and they have passed boards and function as an FNP and many have stated they felt that CCN prepared them. It's an online school so you get what you put forward. Lots of studying on your own time and you have to have self driven. I loved Immersion weekend in assessment! We got the opportunity to get hands on learnung on assessing patients prior to clinicals and met life long friends in the process. The most frustrating part of the program is findind preceptors but this is an issue with most programs. Start looking a year in advance as they fill up quickly. Most importantly remember to give back and become a preceptor when you are a practicing NP."
DO NOT GO TO CHAMBERLAIN!!!!! ABSOLUTELY AwFUL!

"WARNING: I 100% regret the decision to go to this school. Go to a school that finds preceptors for you. The beginning of the program is good but dealing with the "practicum coordinators" is a complete joke. The teachers show absolutely no interest in the welfare of students. The dean shows complete disrespect for students concerns. He does not return emails or phone calls. I will NEVER recommend this school to anyone. Go to a school that finds preceptors for you!"

"I am currently enrolled in the FNP MSN program at Chamberlain College of Nursing. I am looking for a school that will accept my courses for transfer (not too hopeful). I am unable to find a practicum experience and The support staff at for this is non-existent. I agree with another review here about this program and support. I did my RN-BSN at CCN and recommended it to many people. I graduated in 2010. I can say the support here has gone downhill. Student Services gets dumped on. My practicum coordinator is nonexistent. I requested a phone call. Got an email telling me to read the handbook for most of my answers which I had read it. I am just totally fed up. I don't have much hope of finishing my degree."

"I started Chamberlain College October 24,2014, I choose this school to to recommendation and enrollment advisors promise that it is very supportive school for working professionals. After 2 weeks being in the program I found that it is not true. School is not flexible at all. After completing my assignmet and noting that I get very low grades I asked what I can do. The professor responce was, "nothing I can do about thare are many student with same concern." Syllabus vs requremnts designed very unprofessionally with many acronyms that requires a lot of reseach in order to decode what instructor is really want from you. In addition, I found later that grading is based on answer key and not on professor kowldge and common sense. Do not waste your time and money like I did. I am plannig to finish my class and go some where else but definitely not Chamberlain. Hope this helps."
