Degree: Nurse Practitioner (NP)

It's actually pretty weird because the program is initially very doable for someone who has a family, career, or other obligations but then out of the blue the NR509 course becomes a nightmare. The immense and constant pressure is horrible for the learning environment. I don't believe I've ever felt this mentally on edge and I've completed 4 programs. I've reached out to instructors several times with concerns about my grade but no one was willing to provide any direction (not asking for answers... Read More

My advisor at Chamberlain is very disorganized. If I ever have a simple question, I will call them and be on the phone for hours, being transferred multiple times during the call, until finally someone answers me. The school is very large and very disorganized. Also I have been taking classes for over a year and can honestly say I have not gained much if any knowledge.

Chamberlain University has truly been a blessing in disguise for me. My husband is active duty military, so with that comes the possibility of relocation. Chamberlain University's staff has been extremely accommodating to the military changes and helpful when we had to relocate in the middle of classes. I am looking forward to continuing my education with Chamberlain as the staff and courses have been excellent to do. At the college where I received my associate in applied science, I had academic...

Chamberlain allowed me to pursue my dream and opened so many doors for myself and family. I was able to balance family life with my schooling and that meant everything to me as I have 4 little girls under 10. I was able to graduate SUMMA and now have an amazing job as a CVICU nurse. I’m so grateful for everything they’ve done for me

Getting my Master's degree at Chamberlain University is the worst expense I've ever made. The program is subpar, but clinical placement and approval is horrendous. Same complaint as everyone else here - I will have to sit out for 8 weeks to no fault of my own. I've paid $8,000 for my clinical sites in addition to the program's cost. I work full time - I've taken time off & that money is also wasted. I do worry that I'll be able to land a job from this school. Waste of time, energy, and money.

This school practically goes out of its way to ensure you don't graduate on time. I had a practicum application in in February that was not addressed until August, and am now sitting out September session. They ensure you have paid enough by the time you rely on them to get things done that you really cannot drop out, and you can't switch programs or even schools because their credits are worthless other places. I regret and feel shame that I chose Chamberlain. Every day I feel sick to my stomach... Read More

Chamberlain FNP program is a nightmare once you enter the second year specifically assessment class on. You need to find your own clinical placement- ok fine hard enough... but then they must approve it. They take months to approve with no communication at all. You can try to email and call everyday with no answer. The teachers do not teach, only grade. There are no lectures, you must just read the book. I have 3 friends in the program and we all have nothing but horror stories to tell. Asking teachers... Read More

The first 2 years were okay. Customer service was adequate. Classes were okay. Instructors were mostly responsive within 48hrs. Once being accepted into the MSN program, everything changed. Customer service was ZERO. No kidding. The computer generated patient assessment did not prepare many of the students for the real world. We all had a hard time. And no one would call back from the program. Literally, an assistant called me stating that she had been hired, trained for an hour, and was told to... Read More

I graduated with a 3.7 GPA. The course work left me unprepared. The customer service is absolutely horrible. I could never get an advisor or anyone on the phone for anything but if you call and say you’re a prospective student you get through right away. This “ college” does not value its current students. The professors do not care and don’t really even read your work. You’ll pass if you show up for the online courses. I was doing a grant program with my place of work and let me tell you that my...

Chamberlain College of Nursing was recommended to me when I decided to continue my journey and obtain my BSN. While I initially was not finding the information I was seeking when looking them up, I am immensely glad I persevered and enrolled in their program. My experience with all the staff has always been nothing but positive, they are extremely helpful with any and all questions I have presented, and they have made my time learning smooth. While classes can be demanding during the 8 week sessions,... Read More

There is no transparency to this school. Once your onboard you are left to your own device. The other day they did an ACH from bank account unauthorized. I am currently in the process of leaving the school. Getting out while I am still early before any more errors on their behalf which I suffer the consequences from their actions.

When you sign in they are quick with the process for their own convenience.....once you start your classes you are on your own. You are left with no support, teachers don't support you, and they don't care about your future or anything regarding your success. When it comes to clinical sites, there is no support, not even to get a list of places as a reference......0 support, if you have a question regarding your clinicals, they will not answer your calls nor emails......I regret starting this program...

I graduated in 2021 from the BSN program and had a great experience. I am in my last few months of the FNP program, which has been a disaster. The program, coursework, instructors, and immersion weekend have been fine; however, the coordination of preceptors and practicum sites has been ridiculous and unbelievable. The ELC department does not coordinate anything with the students, give misinformation, cancel pending applications without your knowledge or why the application was canceled, or reply... Read More

I won’t forgive myself for being assigned to this school. I have been in this school for one year and I can’t even identify if it’s a school or a threat place where we as students are the ones who pay for every error that they make. No one will help or listen to you in order to fix any issue. Recently they came up with a national exam where professors are not allowed to write the exam, professors cannot guide students on what to study, and professors can only teach but not communicate with students....

They lied about the tuition. They lied regarding my computer compatibility with their learning platform. I was unable to study their program with my computer. I withdrew from their program before the deadline. They are billing me for their services unreceived and have sent me to collections!!!!!!!!!! DO NOT TRUST THIS SCHOOL

One of the worst experiences with clinicals I’ve ever had. I’m working on my MSN informatics degree, and not only is the clinical process awful because you have to find your own clinicals, I have been waiting for MONTHS to get approved after I have submitted everything. There is no communication in this school. It has pushed back my graduation date and caused an immense amount of stress. RUN from this school, the stress truly isn’t worth it.

I received my BSN through this school and had no complaints. Now I am in the middle of earning my FNP and I have nothing nice to say. The department to approve the clinical sites is in no way accessible to the students. They have my site approval on hold for the second semester in a row for no reason. It is the same site that I was going to and the site is approved for future semesters. I have called multiple times. Spoken to multiple people that just say, "We cannot do anything, give them a few... Read More

Jerked everyone around. Never answer the phone. Hangs up. Not responsive at all. Almost everyone I met in my classes share the same opinion. They are awful. Even when we tried to rate the classes. They would not let you select below an eight. Many hiccups in the software used which had negative implications on our grade. Rejected clinical work with only two weeks to spare so we were forced to wait on taking the class. No help on any of this from the councils or school.

The first year was great. You learn at your own pace and can still work full-time. Some professors truly care and others are nonexistent. As many others have written NR509 was incredibly challenging. There are two exams that cover an immense amount of material that just can not be learned entirely in 4 weeks. The study guide is vague and essentially pointless. I submitted practicum information early and on time. Some even a year in advance. ELC did not finish the completion of my clinical site approval... Read More
