"HORRIBLE HORRIBLE. if I could give this school a 0 star I would. The professors are no helpful, Your attendance, homeworks doesnt mean anything. No one in that school is helpful(specifically the north Brunswick campus). They have you doing mad work and its not even going to your core/passing grades its going to your supplemental score which doesnt mean ANYTHING atall ! Please stay far away from this school and save your pocket. They are all in all for your money. Beware of these for profit schools. I ignored the horrible reviews thats why I am where I am right now."

"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."

"I cant tell you how awful this program is. Im so sorry to say that I have taken any classes and wasted my time and money going to this school. If I could copy and paste other 1 star rating comments, I would. Ive experienced the same problem they have, from the overly nice and promising admin reps, to being ignored or talked down to from that same staff once youre enrolled, the Dr. that are instructors are worthless as teachers. They dont teach, you might as well be self taught, the direction and guidance is lacking. The instructors complain more than the students. The instructors talk more about personal stories then the damn subject being taught. The Dean doesnt want to hear complaints. The Director is impossible to get an appointment with ( Director wants you to talk to the Dean). Even after youve spoken with the Dean and gotten little attention and respect. Im currently on a leave of absence so I can decide what to do with the time and money Ive spent so far. Every 8 weeks I end up owing $1000+, this doesnt make sense. After financial aid loans and grants, how can I possibly still need a personal loan to cover tuition? I was not expecting this at all. This is not the 1st college or university that I have attended, and I have never had to pay while Im in school. I could go on forever about how horrible this school is. I probably wont go back. I need to find out if any of the classes that Ive already taken with chamberlain will even transfer to another school, so far the answer has been NO. Smh. Do not go to this school and pay $80k-$100K for a BSN. This school does not care about their students, its all a lie, they just want your money. And God forbid you fail any 3 classes (science / nursing) in any combination during the 3+ year program, youll get kicked out, and have to start over somewhere else because credits wont transfer to several places Ive asked. The only reason to stay is if youd like to have the feeling that you paid for a BSN. Because the program is nothing to be proud of. Id be the same as just exchanging $80k for a paper that says BSN & just letting me take the NCLEX, it would save a lot of time and thats all your doing anyway."

"This is one of the worst school I’ve ever attended. Please save yourself from this school!! They barely have professors to teach classes and the classes are taught every other session due to the lack of professors. The staffs and professors have the most nasty attitudes there. They can never help you with anything. If you ask them a question they get all nasty on you. I regret coming to this school. I am literally counting down the year and a half I have left here. The work they provide here is to set you up for failure. Please read these reviews before making a choice at this school. I use to see the bad reviews about this school but ignore it and decided to give it a try. Now I know what everyone was talking about. I literally cannot wait to get out from this school. They treat students so bad. It’s just so sad. Also you can never get a hold to talk to any student services advisor %26 they’re not very supportive at all. They only care about making money. They hire some people at CAS who literally hates their job. Always give students a hard time."

"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"

"Not sure what all the complaints about Chamberlain are about- it's an online graduate level program. I expected a large amount of course work coupled with self study and tests, thats pretty much what it is. I think people are expecting an easy experience from an online program, which it is not. Any online program is what you make of it. If you study what they tell you to study, you should do well, but if you slack, fall behind, and neglect your studies, you won't. Don't be discouraged by the amount of course work required, because it is a masters degree, after completion of which, you will be prescribing and treating patients, in some states, without the supervision of a doctor. I am satisfied with the program, as it is challenging, invigorating, and I am learning more in this program on my own than I would have with a traditional brick and mortar school, for nearly a third of the price. Course assignments are due at a certain time, and you complete them at your leisure, day or night. It works well for those who require flexibility (nearly all RNs, am I right?)."

"Worst school ever. Stay away from these people they are put for your money not your academic well being. Makes changes unprecedented and very unstable. Teachers are sometimes reachable however not happy when students do so. They are not interested in your career or what you are here for but your money."

"PLEASE, take everything Im about to say into strong consideration before making any decisions towards this school. This school is absolutely atrocious. The same way they weed you in is the same way theyre going to weed you out. The faculty and admission committee start off by feeding their applicants false hope and being overly nice. They lure students into applying to the school by promising a false vision of the education theyre going to receive. The professors are absolutely the worst professors Ive ever dealt with in my life. They have no desire to teach or help their students, they fail consistently at doing their jobs correctly, and theyre some of the laziest human beings Ive ever encountered. Lectures consist of 3-4 hours of reading pre-made PowerPoints that arent even created by the professors. The books, as well as the notes provided in class, hardly relate to the exams. In addition, the exams consist of some of the most foolish questions ive ever seen. There are no study guides, no curves, no extra credit, or anything of that sort, which is understandable but ONLY if the students are being given a proper education (which they are not). Emailing a professor or calling the school is a game of whos going to take the longest to answer? Ive went days without getting an email or a call back. Ive dealt with situations where the advisor was on vacation or away, preventing me from getting the help I need. In addition to that, the school is severely understaffed. You get the same awful 2/3 professors the entire time youre there. There is MAYBE 1 good professor, but I promise you, the rest are downright disrespectful, and are only at the school to collect a check. The worst part about ALL of this is how often they flash their degree in your face and act entitled as if theyre better than you because theyre nurses and youre not. And these same Professors doing this, are the same Professors that walk into class every day as if they hate their lives. The program is accelerated for absolutely no reason. There are programs out there that take less time to complete and arent accelerated. The school is also expensive for nothing. PLEASE, i could go on and on, do not attend this school. I will swear on my own life, that no student here is proud of the decision they made to come to this school.I want to add some very crucial information. Going into this school I was a graduate from Wayne State University with a 3.84 gpa, a major in biology, and a minor is psychology. I chose this school initially over other schools because it was somewhat accelerated and because they were so quick to accept me. I had some of the worst days of my entire life in this program, feeling lonely, feeling as if I wasnt good enough, feeling as if I was a failure. My friends who attended other nursing programs were doing just fine, while I was beating myself up and putting my health at risk just to manage passing some of the courses from this awful school. Last year i made the best decision of my life. I decided to not let this school waste my precious time, and money, and made the decision to leave. Not long after I applied to the University of Detroit Mercys Nursing Program, and Madonnas as well. I was accepted to both. Here I am, halfway through Madonnas program, getting the best education of my life. The program is in no way easy, but its definitely A LOT better than what I was dealt with at Chamberlain. I regret not coming here from the start, but I guess you live an you learn. PLEASE, dont make the mistake i made, along with many other students, in attending Chamberlain. Apply anywhere else. Keep trying to get into a better school, and dont give up until you do. Never limit yourselves to a low standard because of self doubt or because of people getting in your ears. I want no one to deal with what I dealt with, so learn from MY mistakes. Every classmate I had at Chamberlain absolutely hated it. Days of witnessing my classmates crying, complaining, or contemplating their futures. All because of the awful education the school had to offer. It wasnt until i went to a different school when I realized how big of a difference there is in receiving a proper education and a really bad one."

"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 can't express enough how unprofessional, unresponsive, unwilling to teach, low in grammar, and ready to fail students left and right! Clinicals..do not even go there, you will never get help! And if you ask they will make up sites with you being turned down looking like a lost sheep. I regret this school, but I don't have a way to go back. Don't make a mistake, you will have no life even if you don't have family, friends, or job. Program changed completely since beginning of 2018, they failed so many! Don't be next!"
