online rn to bsn chamberlain college

  1. 0 I am about to start an online rn to bsn through Chamberlain College of Nursing on march 1st 2010. I've read lots of reviews, more good than bad, so I decided to proceed. I am wondering if anybody out there has any new information about their own experience so far this year with the program? This is not my first online program, but wonder about the amount of hours weekly each course is taking??? I see that the school is accredited, but is the online program accredited also?? Is anyone else out there starting in March?

    The online program has all the accreditation of the brick and mortar school.

    I'm starting in March, too.

    Please let me know how you both like it.. I"m due to graduate with my ASN in May and am looking for an online RN-BSN program. I would be real interested in hearing about both of your experiences

    I will graduate from the Chamberlain RN-BSN program in 11 weeks and I have really enjoyed the program. I started in July and went full-time. The workload is doable even if you work. It is hard for me to say how many hours each class takes a week as it really varies. The two classes I have now require a couple hours a day at least 3-4 days out of the week. Good luck!

    I am looking into Chamberlain online myself. I know someone who is doing it and she like it. She is working full time and says it is doable. I found out I passed my boards today so I want to keep this going. I have a BA in Business and the Associates RN. Does anyone know how long it will take? I can't imgine that long because I already have Chemistry and Statistics.

    You have to take a minimum of 32 credit hours with Chamberlain to graduate. I think it can usually be done in about 3 semesters, each semester being two 8-week sessions.

    It can be done in under a year.

    I am also looking into an online RN to BSN program. I do notice that Chamberlain does not require their students to put in any clinical hours. This seems awkward for me since other RN-BSN program I've looked at require many hours of clinicals. Will I be eligible to be certified as a Public Health Nurse after finishing Chamberlain? Thanks

    You'll have a BSN from an accredited institution. I'm not sure what else is required for public health certification.

    I don't know how much people know about the online programs but there is the CCNE, and NLNAC accreditations. If the school has those or is dual accredited great. I would find out from your states board which or both are needed to practice there. Chamberlain is good and I have also heard good things about Drexyl. Do your research. So how did the financial aide work out for you for books and tuition. I am getting ready to do the same thing and thats why I was on here. PLEEEZ give me the scoop on your experience on what you did for the Financial Aide and what it will cover. Also, how soon you get your funding. Best of luck. Don't be afraid to use allnurses we will certainly help you out for sure. smiles bye the way good for you. I want to do a BSN to MSN nurse practitioner

    I was concerned also about not having clinical. In my review of many programs, many do not require clinical time for BSN. I asked one school, that I thought had them and the response "we assume that if you have your RN, you know how to be a nurse". They have dropped the clinical component from their program for RN to BSN. Makes sense to me.

    I'm still waiting for transfer evaluation before I make my choice, but Chamberlain is one on the list. They seem expensive, but quick. I'm looking into a few more schools in my area and then I'll compare length of time, requirements and cost. I'm not getting any younger!

    This program is also on my list, mainly for the short period of time to complete and the lack of clinical requirements.
