"I wish I had started this program a long time ago. I have been an RN (ADN) for 21 years. I went back to school at Chamberlain University, and it only took me 2 years to get my BSN. I was that person that barely graduated high school. There is an incredible amount of support from the first call all the way through graduation. The online classes gave me the flexibility I needed with my work and family schedules. I was able to take time off for vacations, which I really needed! The few times I needed to contact Student Services, I was able to get my questions/issues resolved with only one call. The instructors answered all my questions, usually within an hour, either online or through email The online portal is very useful! Everything you need is there. Nearly all of my research was done through the Chamberlain University portal. I did use the internet for some searches, but the majority of my research was through Chamberlain. Honestly, I can't believe how great my experience with Chamberlain University was. I worked hard, sacrificed a little, and graduated with a 4.0! If I can do it at age 55, you certainly can as well. The hardest part is getting the nerve up to start the program. Once you begin, you'll be done before you know it. My next step, after a little quality time with my family, is to register with Chamberlain University for my Masters degree. I can't wait!"

"This school falsified how their program is and what is to be expected. There are too many students in the classes and the teachers are terrible at getting back to you or having a one-on-one. They keep changing how he run the classless and work load all the time and fill you with busy work. It was a terrible experience and I do not recommend this school. They teach you skills in one day and expect you to master it. You have to pay for everything at this school and the tuition is already a pocket burner. I would have never went to this school but they falsified how they present themselves and its very disappointing and I wish illegal. Then I could get half my tuition back because all the information was online so therefore I was my own teacher. If you can not information dump or if you are not book smart, then this school is not for you."

"This is school is horrible. I signed up and heard so many bad things from a coworker. So I decided to to leave the program on the first day or school . I got $500 charged just by loging in to the blackboard. Do not go to this school. They also fail people right and left."

"The staff was excellent at helping guide me through the program. The on program was easy to navigate and the professors were always available if I had questions. The financial representatives were always available for my questions and very knowledgeable regarding how I should proceed with my class selections."

"I have a BSN and MSN from Chamberlain and currently enrolled in the DNP. I can say the education received pushed my limits, encouraged me to think outside the box. I am proud of the education I received, It was not a degree they handed I can honestly say I earned it. The instructors are always available to assist in your education."

"Excellent support through financial services, student services, and academic advising. Sometimes the hold time to get through to someone gets a little ridiculous, but leave a message or send an email, and they will call you back. Anytime I was unsure of what direction to go, they would lay out my options and encourage me to look at the pros and cons. Pricey tuition but overall I've been very pleased with the personalized support from Chamberlain."

"I had a wonderful experience at Chamberlain College of Nursing. I was able to complete my master's degree FNP track in two years straight through while working full time and having two small children. Chamberlain made it possible to achieve my dreams. The program is in no way easy and you will read a lot of negative reviews about the program but if you want a program to be easy and just hand you a degree - this is not the program for you. In addition, those FNP schools online that don't require you to take exams or to be monitored on camera are gaining a reputation for poor students and poor nurse practitioners. I learned this in clinical with the stigma of online schooling, but my preceptors were beyond impressed with my preparation and knowledge that Chamberlain instilled in me. The last ten months are very hard with clinical, logging patients and keeping up with the coursework, but my instructors were NOTHING short of amazing. They were always readily available, they pushed me to learn more and pull out my best work. If it was not for these professors, I would not feel prepared like I am today. I graduated in October, took my national certification two weeks after graduation and passed on the first try! They require you to go to Chicago for a review course, and this was an exceptional opportunity not only because I learned so much, but because Dr. H. is a legend! She is fantastic to watch and it was so empowering to sit in a room with 400+ nurse practitioners! Amazing! Thank you Dr. M., Dr. W., Dr. D., Dr B. and Dr. B.. You all were my five instructors for my clinical courses and it is because of you that I write this review today! Thank you Chamberlain for empowering a young woman to achieve her dreams while still being a mom and wife. You all have met your calling as you are the definition of what an educator is and should be! In addition, the cost is about the same as a brick/mortar school and I needed the convenience to do my school work during the night after work or when kids were sleeping. Chamberlain made it possible! Thank you Chamberlain"

"So I decided to attend this school on the Phoenix campus. I absolutely love this school! I choose this over the community college and state university because the waiting list were so long. Every year I was waiting on the list was a year of salary that I was losing so the price of attending was well worth it. All my credits from junior college transferred so it was cheaper that way as well. Nurses at my clinical sites love chamberlain students over the other schools because we are so prepared learn so much. Highly recommend. Invest in yourself and your future, its worth it."

"This school has been the best decision I could have ever made. I am married, I work full time and have a 12 year old and 4 year old. I did not intend on attending chamberlain. It started off as an inquiry into the degree requirements. With that I was contacted and walked hand and hand through the admissions process and the registration process. I could not believe how helpful they were. Then when I started taking classes the professors were extremely concerned in my success. I am on track to graduating in 2019 and cant wait. It has been a great experience so far."

"Chamberlain really does have a good program. I am a practicing FNP and love what I do. My education was stellar, the faculty were awesome and I would recommend this school to anyone who is interested. Yes, it was tough, but yes, it should be; it made me a better FNP. Highly recommend!"

"Applied for 2018 January session for the pearland,TX campus be careful about attending this college. They try to persuade you to join with "low costs" but I just received my estimated financial plan for the semester and it is 725$ Per credit hour. The application packet has just been lies and whenever I talked to my admissions advisers or student support advisers they would not include crucial details. For example after a background check of 200$ they did not include the detail that you would have to pay 20% of your current semester as a prepayment to actually register for classes. In my case I was looking forward to joining this school on my first few visits but slowly became more skeptical over their honesty over my next few visits."

"I could not recommend this program more!!! The online program was very accommodating for a working mother. I am an older student (in my 40s) and it was a little confusing at first with the computer aspect. After getting used to it, it was great. The teachers are great. I have no negative comments."

"This University actually cares about their students well being. From the initial conversation to the financial aid department, every person made sure all my questions were answered and I received all the support I needed. They do have 21 campuses around the country for those interested in being a nurse, but the RN-BSN is all online which was exactly what I was looking for. My credits transferred from my Associates Degree so with the discount the tuition was about $20k for the whole program. The professors are really responsive and the whole program can be completed in 1 year. I highly recommend attending here for your BSN. You will not regret it!"

"I just completed Chamberlain College of Nursing (now Chamberlain University) RN to BSN program. I had to take 7 nursing classes plus a sociology class called Diversity in the Professions because I have a BS in another field. Each class is 8 weeks long. The basic structure is a discussion topic each week (post a reply and then reply to 2 other people) and 3 projects (usually an APA formatted paper, a PowerPoint, and another project). It was not hard and was very manageable with working full-time and being a busy mother. The program is extremely flexible. I took my classes over a 4 year period (2 classes a year). The only downside is cost - a 3 hour class is around $2,000 and a 4 hour class is around $2,500. If your hospital has tuition reimbursement, as mine does, it wasn't a problem."

"I started in 2016. When i started, I was not in the best health but I had this person that helped me get past being sick and to turn my homework on time. I feel blessed to be a student at this University. A very special friend of mine started out as my admissions director. She encouraged, supported me, , called when I was in the hospital. She directed me on who to talk to and when. Each department is incredibly helpful, no matter what. I cannot find anything bad to say. The only faculty I had a problem with was my statistics instructor. He didnt help much. Otherwise, the faculty are great! Please take a look at this school, and the faculty and staff , it will be the best move you could ever make."

"Please do yourself a favor and stay away from this school. All they care about is money and the professors are in on it together and only do and care about what benefits the school as far as financials are concerned. It is a for profit school and the CCNE seriously needs to take a look at their practices. They are cult like and will fail 4.0 students to get them to repeat classes to make more money, or fail students to adjust cohort sizes because they do not have enough teachers so they spread the cohort out by failing some students so they start at a new cohort. The teachers treat students like absolute dog c***. Please please do yourself and stay far away and do not make the same mistake I did. I attend the Troy campus in Michigan. Absolutely a disgrace they call themselves a nursing school institution. The professors there only read slides off that other teachers have made from different institutions. They CANNOT teach."

From the intake staff to the professors, everyone's goal is for you to succeed. I am so glad I made the choice to attend this university for my MSN- FNP track."

"I'm about to complete my degree at the end of December. I took 2 classes at a time, and I would have been done in a year had I not taken 16 weeks off. But that's the beauty of it; it's flexible, so if you need a break, take it! They have excellent support for tutoring and even have support for non- school issues if problems arise that interfere with school."

"Chamberlain made the entire process easy...from obtaining by transcripts from previous schools at enrollment, giving me credit for my previous courses and through to graduation. Each class was laid out with the expectations and due dates that were easy to follow. Instructors used various teaching methods such as vidoes, viniettes, power points, and discussions. The instructors were responsive and gave feedback where there were learning opportunities. I do not know why I waiting so long to get my BSN. It was so much easier than I would have thought."
