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

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.

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 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

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

This school is horrible. The environment for the first few classes is great and very easily manageable even if you double up on classes and work a full-time job. Something changes once you enter NR 509, things just get terrible. No one answers the phones for experiential learning coordination(ELC)to help coordinate contracts with school and practicum sites. They are so slow at getting back to you to tell you that you are missing things to the point that many people I know have had to take time off... Read More

So when I first started I loved chamberlain. After about a year of MSN classes the environment changed student services got super long on response time. It went from days to sometimes weeks. As practicum got near I never felt prepared. There seemed like a new requirement appeared daily, and no one would respond back to my questions. Instructions often weren’t clear and I waited 5 weeks to speak to my clinical coordinator about a practicum that was still being approved months after being submitted.... Read More

DO NOT GO! Choose a school that is actually supported and has staff to work on things properly. They force the student to submit their clinical sites for approval 120 days before clinicals are supposed to start, yet they do not approve the sites and create contracts. Therefore, students lose their clinical spots and have delays in their education. They do not have enough staff to actually create contracts, work on site approvals and lack communication through out the entire process. The school does... Read More

This ride has been rough. I read in previous review that the first 18 months was doable, which I totally agree. Once practicums started it has been a whole different story. There has been a large volume of information that has been regurgitated to students in conjunction with clinical hours. The videos for each section have been good, but everything else has been incredibly challenging. This semester there has been a huuuuuuge delay in getting registered and the new requirement of pediatric specifics... Read More

There's so much to cover concerning my experience with Chamberlain. I went to Chamberlain as an undergrad and had a wonderful experience (minus the cost), but graduate school was an entirely different beast. I recently graduated, and I'm still studying and waiting to take my boards. Some of the major complaints I have in regards to attending Chamberlain include their horrible communication, their constant changing of curriculums, the cost, and their inability to appropriately match students with...

Where to even begin with this review. If you are considering Chamberlain hopefully you are smart enough to do research. Apparently I was not so here I am. I only lack 4 courses before graduating and I have maintained a 3.85 GPA. I am currently in the certificate program as I already have a masters from another institution. Having said that I am considering looking at other schools and having to redo some of this coursework just to get away from this school. The ELC team is a joke. They don't answer... Read More

BSN to MSN was great. MSN had been an utter nightmare. Please know that this school WILL NOT help you get a practicum site. They say they will after coaching calls and documentation of site refusal but they will still not help you. Trying to get a hold of your coordinator in experiential learning is IMPOSSIBLE and they are unorganized and give you tasks that are not even needed yet simply hinder your progress towards practicum sites. I am very close to transferring to another school at this point.... Read More

I am currently attending Chamberlain for my FNP and everything has been somewhat ok up until now, with no thanks to the "professors". I am currently in Health Assessment and the past five weeks have been a nightmare, because of the structure of the class and ESPECIALLY an unsupportive professor who is honestly making me feel attacked by the way he picks and chooses what he is taking points off for. Always saying reference the syllabus when there is nothing to reference because he is just making up... Read More

I currently have been working on my MSN/FNP classes for the 18 months at chamberlain and the first 18 months were smooth sailing with a little difficulty here and there. However health assessment has been a nightmare it has been so disorganized and road blocks at every turn not to mention the flying to Chicago for immersion and having to pay almost another grand out of pocket. On top of all of the stress, I go accused of integrity violations on a minor assignment. The assignment was an ihuman virtual... Read More

Please save yourself the time, energy, and stress and choose another school. Any other school. It's already hard enough and this school puts up extra road blocks every step of the way. It often takes an hour to get through to student services. The experiential learning coordinator is supposed to call back within 24 hours and often never calls back. They say they will escalate it to the next level, which means nothing. They say the management will then respond within 48 hrs and they never call back... Read More

I already have another masters degree in nursing and I wanted to become a provider. I went to a state school for my other nursing degree and felt that Chamberlain was a better option as it was all online and they did well promoting the military discount. However, almost every semester I had to contact the school because they don't seem to talk to one another in departments, they tell you one thing but mess it all up every single time. They tell you that you are registered for classes and when you... Read More

Graduated in 2022 and as a previous student in the BSN program, I did pass the AANP. This program is not made for full-time workers or those with busy lives even though they tell you it is when signing up and getting through the application process. The basic rundown of your courses is initial posts or discussions by Wednesday of the week with at least two replies for a total of three different days' posts. then there is the occasional double discussion where you have to post by Tuesday of the week...

Don't attend this school! It is true they charge an enormous amount of fees, the professors are not supportive, there grading is not consistent either. I had to find my own preceptors and had preceptors cancel on me during the clinical rotation. With all the stress you would think there would have been resources available but it was not. Long story short. I completed the program, did ALL clinical hours, passed the EXIT exam and ended with a gpa of 2.96. I even sent them the police report showing... Read More
