"I am currently a student at chamberlain. I have attended a few different colleges, about 6 years of college education, prior to chamberlain and decided to go here due to the fact they accepted the most of my credits from prior education. I have about a year left of my program and I can say I am highly disappointed with their program. Most of the professors are very entitled and do not treat the students as they should. Most of the time during lecture ramble about information not included on the exam. The professors are quick to stick to the rules in the handbook when it benefits them but not when they are in the wrong. Most of them are not good professors as most of the information that is tested is self taught. I have only have had 2 professors who I would qualify as good teachers and seem to understand what it is like being a student in an accelerated program. As some of the other reviews mentioned, having a job and being a student at chamberlain is close to impossible. With the amount of word required, along with the frequency and high amount of material on the exams, making time is often quite hard. For what a student pays for chamberlain, I feel it is not worth the money. There are little resources available for a student, yes they have a "library" but it is quite small and one private room. I have been working in the health care field for about a decade and a lot of the stuff that is taught, I have never saw a nurse perform or use the information we are required to know. The thing that pushed me over the edge to write this review is my most current experience with some of the professors and higher ups. I requested to be excused from lab to carry out some of my families wishes and it was denied. The instructors at chamberlain always say how being compassionate and caring is so important for a nurse. Well it went that long ago when they were nurses as well and somewhere along the line they forgot they are still supposed to have those qualities. Now for all the negative things I have experienced, there have been a few positives. The people who work in the student advisor section are always quick to help and try to make things work for the student. And those few professors who I qualify as good, did in fact go the extra mile and helped out as much as possible. Whether it be making extra worksheets for each student to use or making themselves available for the students if they need tutoring. So those people saved the review from all one stars. So if you are a student reading my review, I highly encourage you to investigate other nursing schools and make sure you read all the reviews about a school. It will be well worth your time"

"The exit exam is a waste of time and energy. If I would have known what I know now i would have searched around for other schools. No matter how much you study and prepare for it, the information doesn't coincide with what is being taught. I spoke with other people that are in the program that expressed the same concerns. If you fail the exam twice you repeat the class, clinicals, and the APEA review. Sounds like money to me or insanity. What sense does it make to repeat all of this if the information is not there. In my opinion there shouobe a course that focus on the preparation for the test without all the extra if you have 2 failed attempts."

"Chamberlain has been a great choice for me. The faculty are very helpful and always available to answer questions. Admittedly, I was hesitant to take online classes but the transition was easy. Although you do have deadlines for assignment, you can still go at your own pace."

"After much consideration to several universities regarding costs, curriculum, student feedback and quality of the programs, I chose Chamberlain. Chamberlain spoke with me and followed me through my RN year, long before I committed to them. While many students are looking for a quick and easy way to finish their BSN, I witnessed others who had gone through Chamberlains program. It was clear to be that Chamberlain may be costlier, but that I could expect a great return for my money. Initially I planned to attain my BSN, but not long into the course I knew I wanted to go further and Chamberlain has helped me through the process every step of the way. Chamberlain emits professionalism whether its during the registration process or during courses. As a new RN I wanted to learn and gain knowledge and this is exactly what Chamberlain has helped me to do. I would encourage anyone to chose Chamberlain. Do your research, compare schools. I have no doubt Chamberlain will top your list."

"I am in the online program and have only three more courses to take after the one I am currently in which is almost over. I have had much success with Chamberlain University. I have taken one course every session and took the July sessions off to spend time with my kids in the summer. It has worked out well. The courses do get more difficult as the program progresses but I was warned of this and it only makes sense. I highly recommend Chamberlain to my nursing friends that plan to return for their master's degrees."

"Chamberlain is an outstanding school that I would recommend for anyone who is serious and interested in nursing. Chamberlain provides an excellent education and training. I've been at Chamberlain for two years now, and I have nothing but positive feedback about Chamberlain. The tuition is expensive for real. I do recommend that whoever is interested, go online and download curriculum courses then take them somewhere else to save the cost, then only take nursing courses at Chamberlain."

"Chamberlain University afforded me the ability to care for my patients and my family. Every faculty member i have had has followed up with my career. I have not ever felt that ihave been alone in my journey as a new nurse. It is great to feel like you are apart of something great that keeps pouring into you. The support I have received has made me continue my education because I want to give back to the next generation of nurses. I believe in Chamberlain for their resources they have available to the students. I cannot wait to help my students the way I was helped. i am foever grateful of my campus. Evey person was supportive."

"I was placed in a position to acquire a BSN by 2019 to remain employed as a Registered Nurse. I found Chamberlain's online program. It fit with my work/life balance. The online courses are doable. I found Algebra, Statistics, and Economics online were intense. I took them back-to-back, and they were a challenge. I spent a lot of time at my computer for these courses. But, I got it done. I am near completion of my program, and will graduate next year."

"I really enjoy Chamberlain. I like the accelerated program because it gets me finished quicker and the 8-week sessions were really good in terms of I didn't have time to slack off. The professors genuinely cared about my success and take the time to know me as a student and as a person. Many of my professors taught me in one or more classes, which was nice because I was able to form a quality relationship with them."

"I am currently enrolled in the BSN online program. I was very nervous about starting classes but they really get you engaged in the content. The classes are small and the professors are inclusive. They answer your questions without hesitation, challenge you to think outside the box and give you feedback on all your assignments. The admissions department is knowledgeable and super friendly. There is no waiting on the phone or being transferred from department to department."

"The DNP program at Chamberlain College has challenged me as a nursing leader by offering content that is up to date and supported by professor's who are the best of the best. When I called to inquire about the DNP program, my first interaction was impeccable! I was well informed about what to expect and the time commitment I was about to make. Each course has bee applicable to my current practice and has allowed me to be exposed to many collegues across the United States. The online platform is easy to navigate and the resources provided are solid."

"I have been a Registered Nurse for 13 years now. About 1 year ago I decided it was time to enhance my career with going back to school and receiving a Bachrlors degree. I heard of Chamberlain through a co-worker and they loved their program. So I signed up and have been 100% completely satisfied. The staff are exceptional, they are consistently courteous and very helpful. As well as, beingpatient with assisting me in getting clarification on my finances. There has never been a time I called Chamberlain and not receive top notch service. I recommend Chamberlain to anyone who is thinking about furthering their knowledge. You will not be disappointed or regret it. I didnt!! Thank you chamberlain for maki g it easy for me to attain my BSN."

"In terms of my own personal learning, I highly recommend this school. I enjoyed the small class sizes, and I highly recommend the accelerated program timing. Having only two or three classes for eight weeks is so much more effective than five classes for sixteen weeks. I feel I can really focus so much more and really learn the material. With this schedule, I was also able to work while in school. It is cheaper than going away and living somewhere... So far very great experience."

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."
