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.

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...

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.

If you are looking for a university that does not meet application deadlines. That will delay your graduation. It has bad management. Chamberlain University is the university you are looking for. They are always behind on their applications and say they are working to improve. But it never got better. It got worse.

Chamberlain is affordable for working people. The instructors care about the learning process and each educator have their own teaching styles which pushes students to be better. I have had a great experience thus far on my educational journey. Choose Chamberlain, you will not be disappointed.

Something I truly believe is going on with the way the school is currently being run. I am in clinical right now close to finishing for the master program and the reviews on here are right on point I agree with it all! This school is a challenge in every way and not cause your learning but because you are fending for yourself in every aspect! Find a different school.

I was stuck in between choosing two different schools for my FNP. I chose Chamberlain because they made it sound so great by saying courses are only 8 weeks long and they help with practicum placement. I am half way thru the schooling, and feel like I have learnt much of nothing. The professors all grade APA format differently so what one says is ok the next may take points off and say its not. I am to the part of the program to find a practicum site, and no help there. They send a link for you to... Read More

I can't say enough about the great experiences I have had with Chamberlain. I started with them in 2020 with a JumpStart program they had offered while I was still enrolled for my ADN at a community college. That program allowed me to get a head start on the BSN program while offering the first 2 classes for free which was an awesome savings. I was able to complete my RN-BSN in 7 months at Chamberlain. I enjoyed the classes, the faculty was engaged in the discussions and had fair grading policies.... Read More

This school does not care about students or clinical placements. Please don't waste your time or money on this school you will regret it! The experiential learning coordination team will not answer phone call or e-mails. Be prepared to be alone and not receive any help when needed. I could not be more disappointed in this school's attitude toward students.

I LOVE Chamberlain University School of Nursing! I am enrolled in their Master of Science in Nursing program. My specialty track is Population Health. I have been a Registered Nurse since 1992, and this career goal has been long overdue. I have read some of the negative commentaries listed in this forum; However, I must say these experiences have NOT been my experiences. From the date of my first contact with the academic advisors, I have experienced nothing but support from Chamberlain University.... Read More

Unfortunately this is a diploma mill = you pay, you get a diploma. You aren't challenged academically or learn new or innovative information that will benefit you in the competitive healthcare field. It is a for-profit school that is much more interested in you paying the $23 dollar balance on your account than in your academic performance. Some of the instructors are very engaged and helpful. A few are petty, poor communicators, arbitrary, and retaliatory. They do not like to be questioned or challenged.... Read More

I knew that I would have to find my own preceptor site, but I never imagined the lack of coordination and support from this school. I have been trying for months to go back to clinicals, but with absolutely no luck. The clinical site required a list of items from the school (proof of good standing, insurance, etc), every time I call the school I am told that they do not communicate with the site, and I am responsible to complete these item. So, I have tried to field it myself, but the school is more... Read More

I am proud to be a Chamberlain student. The curriculum is comprehensive and the future curriculum builds upon the previous. There are many types of learning which speak to all learning styles. The professors are all willing to help and support your education any way they can. their feedback on assignments and thought-provoking questions increase learning and application of learned knowledge. The advisors, student services, and other ancillary staff address issues promptly and work quickly to impart... Read More

I am 2-courses away from a MSN degree but may not be able to finish because Chamberlain will not let me enroll unless I have a clinical site, which I have not been able to get because Chamberlain does not help you find sites. Then, when you think you might have found a site on your own (CVS Minute Clinic) they denied me as I have not done a pediatric rotation, which is extremely hard to find on your own. I have been sitting it out for 3 months now and the more time I am away the harder it will be... Read More

DO NOT ATTEND this school. If you do not have a very substantial and broad APRN or MD network in order to assist for clinical placement, do not even think about attending here. They advertise a "preceptor matching service" but it is nothing more than YOU cold calling places and finding a place on your own. I am still waiting for this service. It is a very frustrating situation to find yourself in. They will not provide you with a list of who others may have used in your area (that would help at least... Read More

Constantly changing rules, even before COVID. The instructors I had were all employed elsewhere, so they really had no time for explaining or teaching. When I tried to use ASPIRE, left voice mail and got a call back 2 weeks later and was offered appointment for 4 weeks later. If I had a question , I was shuffled from one department to the next. Usually took months to answer me. Clinical hours and COMPLIO was a nightmare, although I stayed up to date on everything, the school did not. Was too much... Read More

This school is beyond frustrating. From holding grades and practicum hours hostage to passing the buck. They just want your money and do not help with anything. I even needed to use the ASPIRE services only to be forwarded to a voice mail where no one returned my call for almost a month! This school is a joke. Totally regret it.

I am reading all of the negative reviews on here and am honestly blown away. I have attended Chamberlain for 2 degrees and both experiences couldn’t have been better. I received my BSN in 2014, and because I had such a good experience, I chose Chamberlain for my MSN as well. I recently graduated and am waiting to take my FNP certification exam soon. Chamberlain is very flexible and is designed for working people. There are no set log in times and no live lectures, but instructors and tutors are always... Read More

Having read the reviews prior to attending, I was leary about the education I’d get from the online environment. Looking back, I found all of the classes beneficial - contributing immensely to the goals I had set for myself. Yes, there is a lot of self-paced learning but that is what is expected with this type of program. The discussions, projects, and papers required critical thinking skills and application of your own experiences. If you are not self motivated and lack time management skills, this... Read More

Horrible school. I can’t even elaborate enough on this. I’ll be in debt until I die and I taught myself the entire time. Teachers don’t reply. In my BSN I had a harassing teacher that would call me and email me several times a day, it was so concerning that I dropped the class and still had to pay $1400. It was ok in the beginning when I did my BSN. My MSN teachers currently are horrible. My class discussion asked me to provide my place of employment (specific name) AND city. I did not because I...
