I am working with admission right now to see how many credits they would accept. However, if I get into a CC program, I will go that route first, mostly just because of the cost.

Chamberlain is a very good school. I did my RN-BSN and graduated in 2008. That was my first experience with online program and I enjoyed every bit of it. A lot has been said about the school check page 1 of this thread to have details about chamberlain

Some hospitals require an education from a NLN accreditted school.. there are many posts on here regarding that precise issue.They are getting CCNE accreditation which is higher than NLNAC

I applied for the July 2012 start date. Hopefully will be finding out if I made it in! Crossing my fingers! I got an 88% on my Hesi and my GPA isn't the greatest (2.65), but I have all my pre-req's done and could start semester 4. I have an Associate in Arts, am a CNA, and a EMT-B as well and work in a hospital. Anyone have any sugesstions for me.

I am a new student at the Atlanta Chamberlain campus..we are the first class to go through this program here in Atlanta. I am about to finish my first semester, and it has been incredibly difficult. I have been struggling with my Pathophysiology class and was wanting feedback from other Chamberlain students who have made it through this class. Does the school actually adhere to the 76% cumulative exam score policy to pass the class?? There are several of us who it does not look like we will make this score. Our grade in all of our projects, case studies, etc are A's, but it is this cumulative test score that may cause us to fail the class. Please help...I am beside myself.
Stressed out BSN student in Atlanta.
- 0Jun 30, '12 by Jsayers11Hey AtlantaGoldfish, I have a question for you. I was just accecpted to the Atlanta campus to start in Sept, but I am worried that they are not fully accretided. I know they have to have once class pass the NCLEX, but what if no body does? I know that won't happen, but its scary because the price of the tution. Can you give me any advice on this school? Thanks a bunch.

I graduated from Chamberlain in April of 2012 and I can assure you that Chamberlain has the regional accreditation that every employer looks for. I too, was worried about the accreditation and pass rate of the first class, but as I saw, the first class had a 100% pass rate, and subsequent pass rates have been substantially high as additional cohorts have graduated. I passed my NCLEX with 75 questions and not one person that I know of, and I knew quite a few people, failed the NCLEX. Make no mistake, new campuses have their ups and downs, but so does the profession of nursing and adaptivity is key to success in nursing, so a word of advice, become active in change and become a leader for the new campus and your peer group! Please feel free to contact me for any additional questions or concerns!

Is anyone starting the Phoenix program in October? I have a 3.0 and I have not taken the Hesi yet. My gpa is low because of my first year of college but I got straight A's after my first year. Im worried that I will not be accepted because I did not do very well at first. Did anyone get accepted with a "not so great" transcript? Thanks everyone!
- 0Jul 17, '12 by hawks9109I was bounced between SEVERAL different people on several occasions because no one at this college can give a straight answer. Financial Aid is the WORSE. They came so far as inappropriately asking for my BIRTH CERTIFICATE and MOTHERS MARRIAGE LICENSE neither of which should have been applicable! I did tell them this was extremely unprofessional of them and that in fact I have NEVER had this requested from previous schools but they would not provide me with financial aid otherwise. I finally got fed up of four months of battling with them, each time them telling me"this should be the last thing we need" only to come up with more and more hoops for me to jump through. LESSON LEARNED. I will now be attending a school that is within closer range so that should I need to go and discuss issues I am having I am able to do so. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS SCHOOL TO MY WORST ENEMY. Now I'm in a battle to get back my $60 application fee and have had to report them to the Better Business Bureau!
