Chamberlain University strives to deliver extraordinary nurses, at the bachelor, master's, and DNP levels. I graduated with my BSN in 2018 and returned in 2019 for my master's and it is one of the best decisions that I have ever made. The faculty is well... Read More educated and knowledgeable in their field of practice and they truly want each and every student to achieve their goals. Each facility member has been where I am today and their knowledge and experience shows, as I am a product of that knowledge and experience. I took my ANCC today and was successful on my first attempt, and I appreciate everyone that contribute to my success. Thanks, Chamberlian University, it was well worth it.
Before starting Chamberlain University, I did my research. I did not want to just have a degree, I wanted to be the nurse and FNP who knows what she was dong with an exception. During my research, I saw that Chamberlain had this "Head-To-Toe" assessment... Read More class in their curriculum. I decided on the RN-MSN program. During my BSN program we had to memorize the assessment, record, and submit for grading. Now, I am in the FNP program and in NR509 Advanced Physical Assessment course, same thing happened. Meanwhile, after the BSN part of my program Chamberlain organized a virtual career fair and I got hired by a hospital in Michigan. As a new hire, I had to go through training. I had to give my first report to 2 oncoming nurses. I started by asking the first nurse if we could give a bedside report and she agreed. I gave my report on 3 of my patients. When I asked the other nurse if I could give her a report by patient bedside she was a little hesitant. The first nurse told her, "You want to receive a bedside report from Patience. She gives a good report. She gave from Head-To-Toe assessment and system report. You will love her report." I was amazed! I did not know that I had actually done the "Head-To-Toe assessment," unknowingly and unconsciously. I have my assessments not only memorized for passing my grades and having a degree only but in my unconscious mind (so to speak) with the right attitude to use it in my future practice. I have had amazing professors especially Dr. Nancy Baltz who facilitated this success. Her feedbacks were a teaching moments and did not criticize. Her quick responses and guidance helped in every step of the way. She prepared us ahead of time for the next week's assignment and debriefing, sent reminders and they were detailed and understandable. She is very diligent because she is so passionate for your students' success. I am very happy I chose Chamberlain University.
The professors are very supportive. Each course is designed to be completed in eight weeks, which makes it very doable for a working parent. The student support is also available anytime of the day when I needed help. The online platform is very structured... Read More and welcoming.
