    I took the Teas Test for Chamberlain and it was a basic test of math, english, science, etc. From what my admissions advisor told me, the A2 test is harder, it has harder math, more A&P, etc.

    If you do a google search for both tests you can get an idea of their content.

    Good luck and I hope this helped.

    I have been reading the various threads on Chamberlain College of Nursing.
    I just graduated from the online RN-BSN Sunday. I am sooooooo pleased with the program. I am one proud and well educated graduate.
    It is a top notch program. I can't attest to the onsite programs....but with the online program being excellent...I know you will not be disappointed.
    Be prepared to work!!! But that is what it is all about. You are never alone because the professors and support staff are outstanding.

    Plus they are CCNE accredited.

    They have me so excited that I am looking forward to the world of graduate school now.

    BSN RN 10/26/08!!

    You are quite welcome. Because I am already an RN-- I did not worry about the "pass rate" of the students who take the state boards. Just check to see what the percentage is for your comparison.

    In regards to taking courses for the prerequisites at other schools...that is fine to do to save money. FYI: Chamberlain is affliated with DeVry University so your Stats, Adv. Comp, Algebra etc may be offered through them. DeVry has excellent professors also. For example: My Stats professor was a NASA rocket scientist but he explained it so I could understand it and apply it. I felt that I gained so much more than going to my local community college with all due respect. I just loved the online experience and the worldly experiences it provided. One of the DeVry students in a course was in Iraq by the way.

    Chamberlain is in the works for a Masters in Nursing so I will be curious to review that program. I hope they roll it out pretty soon!

    Good Luck. The nursing profession will be blessed to have you.:typing

    If you don't mind me asking what is your GPA. I also applied for March but have not heard anything yet and was told that I would hear by the end of December. Did you have to take the HESI a2. If so do you remember how you did if you don't mind me asking. I have a pretty good GPA but I am not sure what my chances are of getting in. Thank you in advance.

    I'm not sure who you were asking, but I'll answer

    My overall GPA was 3.6, but the science classes I am taking right now will be sure to lower it a bit I did take the A2 and I think I got around an 80% (not the highest, I know, I didnt get the study guide until 4 days before the test).

    As far as admission, I was called & accepted last week with "early admission", however I think it was because I was already accepted for the fall term & decided to wait for financial reasons. I am sure you'll find out sooner than later--- if you have a good GPA & got an average school on the test, I'm sure you'll be accepted. Right now we have a huge advantage since the school is not widely known yet, my guess is that a year from now it will be a lot more difficult to get into. I'm looking forward to meeting you if you decide to attend!

    My situation is a bit different for enrollment at Chamberlain.
    Because I have been a practicing RN for 21 years, I was in the BSN program. I did not have to take that test called A2 (honestly not familar with it) you mentioned.
    But--I worked really hard as a student, hours upon hours, to earn my 4.0. I was working part time which was a blessing to me.
    They went out of their way to get me enrolled in the program as soon as possible. I was pleased with their promptness. Keep in communication with them. They are very approcable by phone and email. When I had a request while a study--they dealt with it immediately.
    I hope they get the MSN program up and running soon.

    hi there. im new here, but when did you apply for march admission? march as in for summer 09 admissions correct? i thought march admission is not open yet? When does early admission end do you know? Also, do you have to take the A2 right after you apply or can you take it on your own tme when you are ready? Im thinking since part of admissions is based off of the A2 scores, so right away correct?

    i'm thinking of making an appt and talking to teh counselors to see how i do compared with others competng for admissions. would taht be a good idea u think?

    Mimi-
    They have three start dates at Chamberlain- March (spring), July (summer), and Oct (fall). The deadline for the spring admission to start in March is November 15 (tomorrow). I am referring to the spring 2009 term. I'm not sure what the deadline is for the summer term... but I'm sure you can find it online really easily. You should definetly make an appointment & talk to someone. There is really not an "early admission", I was told that I was accepted earlier than most people because I had already applied once & been accepted previously, and had to apply again when I decided to wait.

    You have to take your A2 before the deadline for the semester you want to apply, as it is a part of your application process.

    Hopefully this clears some things up? Let me know if you have any other questions...

    thanks n congrats on gettin in! that clears up a lot of things.. i was going to apply for spring semester but didn't find out about the school til a week before the nov15 deadline. so im going to wait and apply for summer semester instead. the sooner i take the a2 the better right? since part of my admission depends on the scores. im trying to hurry before this school becomes more popular and raise all the requirements. are there any changes to the admissions requirements that you know of considering i just found out about this school a couple wks ago.

    when you made an appointment with them, did the counselor give you hints on your chances of getting in based off your transcripts? I think my gpa is right around the 2.75 border line. do you think having healthcare experience and an associate degree help me? I've heard a lot of good things from reading this board about the school.. i want to get in!!

    do you know how they calculate repeated classes? any suggestions/comments on maybe what i should do to up my chances? take a couple more classes?

    thanks:typing
