After attending a different nursing program, I transferred to Chamberlain University. I have had a much more positive time at this program than I had before. Chamberlain is a challenging program (due to its fast-paced, 8-week session), but there are many resources that not all other programs offer. One of these is the "Center for Academic Success" or the CAS. This has fellow students and professional tutors to help with your pre-nursing and nursing courses. Also the facility (instructors and advisors) respond to concerns quickly and are very supportive. Finally, the learning environment, at least at the Phoenix campus, has been very welcoming and supportive.
Chamberland is the best decision of my life. Going to school has never been the same, the professors are very helpful and understanding. I work full time and I am a full time student, however, dont feel overwhelmed. All of my ADN courses transferred over and I am able to earn my BSN in 9 months and if I was not working I could probably do it in 6 months. I am happy to have chosen Chamberlain.
The expense of the college; The uniforms are not comfortable, wrinkle easily, and everything sticks to it (hair, lent, etc). The fact that shoes have to be white is ridiculous. All White shoes are harder to find. Me, being CNA and having worked in a hospital anything white will not last. The textbooks offered to buy for each class should be the textbooks you will actually need, instead buying books you won't even touch. For example, Health assessment 1, it said we needed the drug book for the class, but we never even touched and will not even have to use the book until pharmacology... Two sessions in the future... There are more examples in other courses. The internet service on our campus is horrible along with the laptops we are forced to use for exams. Because of the internet problems i have had to log out in the MIDDLE OF AN EXAM and exchange the LAPTOPS THREE times with each exam. With the amount of money I pay for my education here, I would like to have bathrooms that are actually clean and are never running out of supplies (toilet paper, paper towels, soap, etc). The financial and advisor services have caused a lot of unnecessary stress and anxiety because I have been accused of not paying my tuition, Plagiarism, and forced to retake classes, even though labeled by the state of Florida from a certified institution that i have my A.A., because of chamberlain not using the same course IDs. The courses I was forced to retake were sociology, political science, and philosophy. Not only having to be forced to take these classes, but the fact that I had to pay more and take it at chamberlain, was just wrong. When I could have pay less and taken it at the community college near by, while attending still my nursing courses at chamberlain. I have used turnitin since 2009, when it was first offered to schools. So I know the system very well. However, I have been accused of plagiarism twice by professors because they looked at the percentage rather than the paper. So they will send me email saying I plagiarized and I am a receiving a zero on the paper. This action taken is outrageous and should be a last resort after investigation and discussion with the student. This has caused unnecessary anxiety and stress to a lot of students. Therefore, it is all caused by the reference page because a lot of us use the same sources. However, there has been times when other sites pop up that have plagiarized from the same source originally cited. For future students, I would like to let you know that the Administration and student services will send an email to every student on the day of about their hours changing 15 minutes before they close. Lastly, I have had to confront with financial services multiple times because they have stated that i have not been paying my tuition. However, in every confrontation done it was an error made by chamberlain's financial services. Luckily, I budget my payments and know exactly where the money is going and coming from. The Financial services needs to be updated and reorganized because I want to feel comfortable knowing that my money is actually going where it needs to be. Also, the advisors need to work on keeping up with notifying Financial aid and Florida prepaid each semester. Because i was almost forced to pay an extra $700.00 for a semester that was not notified to Florida prepaid by my advisor SW. So in the future, I would like to be notified of problems after chamberlain has gone through the process of clarifying what the actual cause is before accusation. Overall with everything I have encounter at chamberlain, the Nursing professors I have had here are remarkable and thorough. They really care and love their students. They are the life line for chamberlain because without them I would not and could not continue my education at chamberlain. For my closing review, I will tell you these are actual situation that i have dealt with. I never usually complain, but something needs to change if they expect me to recommend this school. There are other stories circling and hopefully after this review others will come forward.
Chamberlain University was the best option I could have found to complete my BSN and advance my education. Currently a full time mom of 3, full time nurse at a community hospital. The availability of student resources and the flexibility of online courses is exactly what a nurse is looking for.
I have received my masters degree in nursing education and I am finishing my post master graduate certificate program in nurse leadership. Both career paths have been excellent and I would recommend this university to anyone helpful instructors, easy learning online format, group interaction, live webinars, chamberlain care, and insights into future certification and resources for your individualized career path!! Again Excellent University!!
What college is continuously changing requirements. Each session brings a new requirement or a change in process. Prior to 2019 there was no assistance with locating preceptors. The process started in 2019 to assist with locating preceptors is ineffective. I have been waiting three months and the college is still unable to assist with locating a preceptor. The instructors do very little teaching and the grading between instructors is not equal as some instructors grade very hard while others great very easy. There are very strict requirements during clinical to see a minimum of two or three patients per hour which is very difficult to attain in a practicum setting. The clinical coordinators are very frequently difficult to get in contact with and the cost is $450 per session for the service. The college itself offers very little support or assistance to the students considering the high cost of tuition.
Pros: 24/7 tech support, easy access to professors via email and cell phone, courses allow u to see how your grade/score compares to the class, access to student services even on Saturday, 8 week classes (easy to take a quick break then start back up 8 weeks later) Cons: Cost is high, instructors grade differently from each other (subjective grading), intense course load of primarily busy work (little time to focus on what matters), logging clinical hours takes hours (waste of valuable time)
I have had a really great experience at Chamberlain. I initially could not see myself doing well in an online course and started to pursue my masters in nursing education with much trepidation. I found everyone from the support staff to professors cooperative,supportive and sincerely interested in my completing my goal of getting this degree. I will be the first person in my family with an advanced degree and though my mother is deceased, I am sure she is proud of me. Those who feel that online is scary, isolated, confusing, I would say Chamberlain is organized, flexible, straightforward, and has all the academic and technical support one needs to succeed. .
Chamberlain offers many student resources that other colleges do not. Resources such as peer tutoring, faculty tutoring, and other helpful study resources from masters prepared faculty will help any student succeed if they put in the time and effort. I strongly recommend this college because they will help you succeed and offer a lot of one on one help.
As a military spouse stationed over seas I looked for a fun time online BSN program and found it at Chamberlain. I found the finance department for student loans easy and helpful when I was ready to apply for student loan. The courses were challenging , and even though I have been an RN for over 20 years I learned something in every course. and was challenged by my instructors to learn beyond the basic assignment.My professors were responsive, and provided clear comments on assignments for what I did well and where I could approve. I was able to transfer many of my college credits from my ADN which allowed me to finish my BSN in less than a year going full time ( 2 courses every 8 weeks). This program does require you to be organized, motivated, and to utilize professional ethics. I would recommend the program and think that it was worth not only the time but the money to have the flexibility while living over seas. I am in the process of exploring their masters program simply because I feel like my experience with my BSN was exactly as they described it to me and the instructors were attentive and available.
