Jan 13, '12Hi 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

I wish you all the best!
Jan 15, '12Quote from AZMOMO2They already have the CCNE accreditation, but my point was if anyone is looking to move out of state after graduating to look into your state's hospital requirements. 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
Mar 20, '12Hi Everyone!
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.
Jun 14, '12Hi Everyone,
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.
Jun 30, '12Hey 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!
Jul 11, '12Hey everyone,
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!
Jul 17, '12I 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!
Jul 25, '12Ok 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!
Jul 27, '12Quote from sw33tsandyTechnically, none. They do all of their prerequisities in-house.Ok I am brand new to all of this and have been searching this site up and down for an answer.

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.
Aug 31, '12Hi! 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!
Aug 31, '12Hi 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.
