    Hi,
    Chamberlain College of Nursing is part of the for-profit college Devry. It is a very expensive college. Your better options are University of Texas-Arlington, or Western Govenors University, as well as some good state college's offering online programs. Most of these college's are 100% online with also no clinicals, so do your research before attending any for profit college, so you do not dish out 10X's the amount of money that you need to for your degree, when you can find a great non-profit program Just type in for-profit college's in google and you will see what I mean. Best of luck with your degree!

    This was one of my concerns, thanks for sharing.

    While it may be expensive there are no waiting list like most community colleges and Universities. I attend Chamberlain and there are clinicals and labs. The only way there are no clinicals is if you are taking a RN-BSN or BSN-MSN. Coming in with no degree clinicals and labs are required and mostly pre-reqs are done online, or you can do them on campus as well. However most of the nursing classes you have to go to campus for...hopes this helps.

    The Hesi A2 is used for entry...there are no placement exams. There is math, reading/vocab/english, anatomy, chemistry on the test and they average your math and reading and you have to score a minimum of a 75. Hope that helps.

    @ akilah530 Thanks for your response. I already took the HESI, and got accepted for January. I didn't take College Algebra so I was told that I have to take a placement test to see where they'll place me. I guess it's to see if I will be able to handle college algebra.

    Congrats on getting accepted!!! Sorry about the misinformation...took algebra already, didn't realize there was a placement exam for that. However it makes sense, other schools do the same. Good luck and see you in January! What other classes are you taking?

    @ Akilah530. Thanks. I have an appointment on Thursday to do all the pre-enrollment things and I'm not really sure what's next.

    I visited their school this past Summer. I was very interested as well. Their program and accredidation is legit but I noticed they break the biology A&P and Micro bio into 4 different classes. As desperate as I am to become a Nurse I didn't want to be put in a position where my Financial Aid could run out and I was forced to sit out. I decided to finish up my Bio/Micro Bio at GTC this Spring and any other core classes they offer. I will take another look at them later in 2013 when I'm ready tp apply to Nursing Programs. They are still a plan C,D,E,F or G.

    You will def be better off doing pre-reqs elsewhere $$$ wise but I love the 8wk classes! That's one of the reasons they break anatomy up into 4 classes rather than 2 because there is sooooo much content.

    I was able to get a few scholarships from fast web and my job. Still have to pay out of pocket. I have another degree also.
    Dead Teah8177,
    If you don't mind me asking how much are you paying out of pocket? You can give me a ball park estimate. No need to be exact.
