    Ok I am brand new to all of this and have been searching this site up and down for an answer. I am going back to SCC in the fall and interested into going into nursing. The 2 year wait into their Nursing program doesnt appeal to me at all (especially me being 27 I need to do things a little faster) Can someone please tell me what classes I need to do @ SCC to get accepted into Chamberlain? Thank you!

    Technically, none. They do all of their prerequisities in-house.

    If you want to save some money then do the prereqs in the community college but just know that you do not have to. The single most important class to take care of is A&P. Everyone always leaves A&P to the last, and then regrets it. Keep in mind that A&P is 2 semesters long, it can hold you back if you save it to last.

    Hi! I was hoping someone could help me out by informing what ALL prereqs are for the accelerated BSN program at Chamberlain. I snagged this link: http://chamberlain.edu/docs/curricul...d-incoming.pdf and am wondering if this is up to date? Anyone mind listing the pre reqs, so it would be clearer for me?

    I am almost completed with all of the pre reqs and co reqs for the nursing program at the CC I am going to, but like many others do not want the wait at all, and am willing to pay extra. I'm very interested in this college. I don't plan to start thinking of applying at Chamberlain for at least another year and would like to get all pre and co reqs done if possible within that time that way my tuition would be cheaper if I decided to go to Chamberlain.

    Also, if you have many of the pre reqs done, do you complete the program quicker than the estimated 3 years? Thanks to ANYONE in advanced!

    Hi Kiara – yes, that link you found is up to date. Keep in mind that it lists the BSN curriculum, and not the pre-reqs. There aren’t any pre-reqs for Chamberlain’s BSN. It sounds like what you’re talking about are transfer credits. Chamberlain evaluates transfer credits on a case-by-case basis, so may want to talk to someone in admissions or student services about what courses would transfer over.

    Yes, transfer credits is what I ment! Thanks so much for your reply, I'll definitely give Chamberlain's asmissions a call. If I'm correct, if many of my credits do transfer over, I'll be further in the program?

    Hey! I just wanted to see how everyone is doing at Chamberlain. I am looking to start in the spring at the Chicago campus. What type of entrance exam do they do? I have take a TEAS test before and I am actually studying for the NLN pre-entrance exam for a different school because I am undecided about where to go to school! Any input about the school would be great! Thank you!!!

    Hi I'm new to this site. I'm applying for the Phoenix campus this fall. I have a 3.8 gpa and most of the transfer classes. I was wondering if the third year block of classes, for example, statistics and econ... can we take them the first year to get them out of the way? Do we have to abide by the set curriculum or can we move some classes around?
    Thanks!

    Hi Kmichalak,

    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

    Hey Jsayers11,

    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!
