    Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC), a national accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.
    This is not an accreditation that is recognized by most schools. You will want to be on the lookout for a school that has a regional accreditation. The status of the school in regards to public, private, for or non-profit has nothing to do with whether it's credits are accepted at other institutions. What other colleges look for is the accreditation. If it has the right one, the units will be accepted. Here is a website that might assist you in finding a properly accredited college to attend: The Higher Learning Commission - Home If you don't see that the school you are interested in attending listed here on the HLC website, you should probably think long and hard about attending because it most likely will not be easy to transfer the units into another university.

    Again, Chamberlain is not a state school (like a community college or local university) and it is not as easy to transfer credits from "these type" of educational institutions (meaning Chamberlain) as it is with a state college.
    Your information is not accurate. Are you a RN? I graduated from Chamberlain and I am at Columbia for my MSN. It is the accrediting body that any school is concerned with, not the name of the institution. A state school is far less superior than most private secondary nursing schools, such as Yale, Sacred Heart, etc..Your advice is coming off a bit to judgmental and it wholly inaccurate.

    Sorry they will not transfer to a state college or University. It is a private school and I already looked into it before I signed up. You can earn your Masters through Chamberlain online.

    Chamberlain has both regional and national accreditation, which is what is desirable for future education. I did the RN-BSN there and was accepted by a couple of different non-private schools for my MSN.
