Anyone know about online MSN degree at Chamberlain?

  1. 0 I'm graduating with my BSN from a traditional university and want to find a good online option for my MSN, but I don't want to waste money or time. I'm interested in Chamberlain, but skeptical. Every school seems as though they want you to jump through hoops to apply with exams, interviews, essays, references, etc. Chamberlain seems almost too accomodating and eager to have me. Any advice?

    My advice? Remember the old adage -- "If it seems to good to be true, it probably is."

    I can't tell u about the MSN but I am a BSN student and once felt like u are feeling. I will tell u thus far throughout the process, I have been nothing but satisfied....proud to be a CCN student. Set up a meeting to talk to an advisor in admissions and see what u think.......

    Just remember that Chamberlain is a for-profit school; as such, it behooves them to make you want to go there and pay tuition! I did Chamberlain's RN-BSN program and enjoyed it very much. I was considering them for my MSN (Informatics) as well, but it was just too pricey for me. The school I'm attending for my MSN caps all undergrad and graduate tuition at $250/credit hour for active duty military (which I am) so that we don't have to pay out of pocket if we use our Army tuition assistance. Chamberlain doesn't offer the same, unfortunately.

    Chamberlain itself has both regional and national accreditation, and I enjoyed their online learning environment. But if I were you, I'd check out other options that may or may not have a few more hoops. What kind of MSN are you seeking?

    I graduated this past spring with focus in education. I loved the program. Working night shift with two kids... Online made sense for me... Great program great support. If you have questions, send me a message. I can answer any questions you have.

    Hey DanaLyn!
    I am actually applying to Chamberlain for my MSN in FNP. I did have a few questions and would really appreciate your help
    Ive hear great things about them but the idea of getting my masters with on online program is making a bit nervous. Do you know if they help you with clinical site placement? If i had questions dure one of my courses, are the professors easily accessible for me to ask them?

    Thanks again for you help!

    Hello

    You have to find your own preceptor for clinical. The professor I had for the first class was pretty reliable n answered all my questions. I liked the flow of the class n found it easy to do working full time. I start informatics in May

    actually, they bend over backwards to help you get into their school because it's $20K + for tuition. I completed my RN-BSN there and I didn't have to do anything past talking to them on the phone. They requested all of my transcripts for me, etc. but the reason I went with them is because they accepted ALL of my associates credits, versus other schools that required me to retake as much as half of classes. They have remained helpful throughout my coursework.

    I didn't continue on for MSN because certain states that I still have a license in ( NY ) does not accept their FNP program. Also, i think it's 2-3 years for MSN and my local college offers it in 18 months. MSN can only be taken one class at a time and tuition is still $400/ cr.

    If I don't get into the local school, I'm tempted to go for their MSN/ MBA track.

    Audrey,

    I too am considering the same track at Chamberlain. Did you make a final decision yet? I'm nervous because I don't know very much about the university. Any info/thoughts/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!

    Thanks!

    I'm currently enrolled in their executive track, and I completely misspoke in my last post.

    I competed my BSN with Chamberlain/Devry and the MSN/MBA track has been just as the same. No complaints. Classes are more managerial but ok to manage.

    Hello, all!!!
    I am in the FNP program at Chamberlain, I thought was too good to be true also but I have been there since January have had 5 courses and find it very easy to communicate with my instructors. Do your research, my state takes any accredited program and the schools around here and on line where much higher tuition for me. I am prior military. You best bet is to do what right for you of course!!! But the one thing I really like was the fact that the courses are 8 weeks. You may take 1,2,3 if you are not working. Good luck I hope you make a good choice for you! Kathleen
