This is the best choice I have ever made for my future. Chamberlain is the best. I will swear by them all day every day. They provide all the materials to help you succeed. The Instructors truley care about your success. You have to really want your education, you have to work for it. I did my BSN with them and immediatley signed up for my FNP. The journey I took with Chamberlain was all worth it. I will do it again and I will inspire others to do it as well, just remember you have to want it and it takes effort.
I am currently in my first semester at Chamberlain and I must say I am extremely disappointed with my experience so far and I'm only 6 weeks in. Another student copied my work multiple times, I called her out on in, she continued to copy my work. The teacher or, as she calls herself, the professor, never caught on to it. I brought it to her attention and was basically told the student is now receiving special attention to help her understand that she can't copy another students work. I'm sorry, but I was under the impression that all students at this level UNDERSTOOD that they can't plagiarize, wait, even students at the high school level have that understanding. Oh and they told me of I was uncomfortable with it, I can be moved to another class. So hey if you want to plagiarize then Chamberlain is the school for you!!!! This place is a joke.
Like many of you, I have had a horrible experience and am rethinking my whole Nursing future and the $40,000 I already wasted on Chamberlain...or so it feels. I am highly frustrated and just disappointed about the difficulties I have dealt with at Chamberlain. I was told I did not meet the minimum GPA, which is true I missed it by 2/10's of a point. However, this all occurred while I had a difficult pregnancy and before I could take an official break, my grades dropped. And as I look back, there were a few late assignments that were on me due to issues with my pregnancy, fatigue, etc. However, a great deal of missed point were for APA formatting issues. I had numerous people who have never had issues with APA and completed their Masters programs with no APA issues reviewing my work and yet it seems almost every instructor seemed to switch up the rules on me. And any type of working with the teachers on these issues...did not help. The grades stood.
I cannot express my disappointment in this school. They change policies without telling you. They kick you out of classes without notice for no reason. I was reading some of the reviews on here and I so wish I had seen these first before wasting 3 years of my time and $40,000 of my money for nothing. Multiple advisors have told me the college was wrong but they can do nothing to fix it. I went to the dean of the nursing program and she responded to my issue with the most unprofessional response which was basically its too bad. They changed a policy and dropped me from the program. She would not even call me on the phone to speak to me. Its sad that there is no accountability for their wrongdoing. I wish I knew who I could report this to in order to save other students from the same horrible experience.
Amazing instructors. Adult Learning is difficult and they get it. The instructors guide and assist as needed to ensure success. Working and having a family and going to school seemed next to impossible. But I did it. I really did it. Its not easy, it takes hard work and discipline. Set aside the time you need and achieve your dreams.
HORRIBLE HORRIBLE SCHOOL. HEAD OF ALL OF CHAMBERLAIN WANTS NOTHING TO DO WITH STUDENTS. EVERY WORKER IS NOT TRAINED PROPERLY NOR DO THEY KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING. WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY. I DO NOT RECOMEND THIS SCHOOL. I AM NOW PURSUING MY CARERR SOMEWHERE ELSE.
I found out way to late that Chamberlain on-line is a terrible school! Run the other way! There is no support here, grading is ridiculous, APA format mistakes should not be taken away from your grade they should be a learning tool. I was supposed to graduate this year now who knows when it will be. I had 5 months off from school because I couldn't find a clinical site. Before that I had a clinical site, went one day and was told I couldn't continue because of paperwork issues. Classes are changed in the middle of them, clinical advisors are no help. Two ridiculous trips to Chicago in an over priced hotel. I give Chamberlain no rating stars out of 5!
This school used to have a good program until they went into cahoots with APEA. They now require TWO (2) unneeded trips to Chicago just to make students go to the Q Center where Chamberlain gets a rebate for the 100s of students that are required to go there every 2 months. They require that students pass the APEA predictor exam before graduation and also attend an APEA review at the Q Center and students have to pay all that travel money again. If students do not stay in the overpriced rooms at the Q Center, they have to pay $75 just to breathe the air in the Q Center and get a lame lunch. We could have gone to the same review at a place closer to home but they would not accept it, even though it is the same damned class with the same instructors. The alternative to going is a 30+ page paper on every body system, which is unreasonable so they assure students go to the review and make money for APEA, the Q Center and the Dean at Chamberlain.. It could be that the Dean also has a personal relationship with APEA which makes everything smack of impropriety and a scam They also require students to go to Chicago for the "Immersion" which is a lame way to do check off on doing a physical assessment. Other schools require students to do a head to toe physical assessment and video it for a grade. The immersion weekend is another way to get kickbacks from the Q Center. I studied for months only to go in and have to do a skin assessment which took 5 minutes. That's it. Total waste of time and money. This school is a scam to make money so stay away. There are other schools out there that do not require all the APEA stuff just so the Dean can get a kickback from it.
There are pros and cons to this school. Pros- nursing techniques and simulation rooms are great, facilities are adequate for learning, time in classroom setting is appropriate. Cons-THIS IS NOT A SCHOOL FOR WORKING ADULTS!!Expectations of workload for one class (discussions, papers, ATI, labs) are unrealistic and most students have 2 or 3 classes. Teachers will begin to assign work for the next term before the current term is completed. Staff is rude and conduct themselves in an unprofessional manner. The school wants anonymous surveys of the class and the professor for both online and on-campus classes, but the on-campus staff will ask you to turn it in person, so there is no room for improvement. Certain online classes should not be taught online (critical thinking, all maths) as concepts are hard to understand via online. If you have a children or other responsibilities outside of school. Plan accordingly. The staff is not accommodating and for the remainder of the program you will have no life.
Please do yourself a favor and STAY AWAY from Chamberlain. I have had major difficulties in trying to understand how they do business. They don't seem to have the program organized and change policies-procedures in the middle of a class. System goes down in the middle of a test and is unstable so you must wait for something to be repaired before continuing. You are stuck with a for profit school that you must jump through unnecessary hoops for. Material must be acquired by you and instructors are extremely picky about APA style in every single regard so points are taken off for ridiculous reasons. The amount of coursework while you are doing coursework is absurd. It seems to be busy work and I don't recommend this program if you have a family or even work a couple days a week. Please do your research and understand what you are getting into before you pay several thousand dollars!
