    RN122, I am into my 7th and 8th class and have not bought a book yet. Unless its a DeVry course and its automatically online for me. I am also taking EVP and Comm Health right now, wish you luck. So far I have had all A's and trying to keep the streak but as many know two classes and work can become difficult.

    it's great to read all these posts. I'm considering Chamberlain for the RN-BSN, and just got off the phone w/an advisor. Congrats to those who go there and are doing so well!

    I decided after next term I'm going to get the rest of DeVry's classes out of the way. Cult Div, Econ and then Intro to Humanities. I really enjoy Chamberlain's classes (currently in informatics), but feel like DeVry's really take a lot out of you. Their classes seem to be awfully time-consuming.

    Hard work pays off though, got an A in stats!

    Good news! I talked to a Chamberlain representative today and they said their MSN program is now accredited by CCNE. The only thing that is kinda crappy is that if you do the bridge program (RN to BSN to MSN) you don't receive your BSN until your MSN is done.

    Hi everyone,

    I have enjoyed reading what I have of this thread and it is very helpful however I can't get through all 400 replies!

    I need advice on starting with Chamberlain. I have yet to hear back from my advisor but just wanted to ask you all. I graduated a few years back but never really worked and ended up staying at home with my kids. They are very young, 2.5 and 1 yrs. I want to go back to school, online, and really would like to do some RN-MSN bridge because I'd loved one day to be a NP, once my kids are off at school. I'd like to work through school part time. Is this possible at Chamberlain? I just want a realistic outlook of whole going back to school is going to be with kids still so little (and demanding!). If anyone is in the same boat, I'd love to hear how it is working for you. And if anyone has any helpful info, I'd appreciate it.
    Also... the homepage talks about an RN-MSN bridge that is actually more time efficient if you know you eventually want a masters. Is this what I would want? I know my advisor can answer some of this. Does it matter which advisor I use? I saw you all talking highly about one lady. I am waiting on a call back from Ryan.
    Thank you so much!

    I am currently in the first 8 weeks of the program. Overall I like it, just a ton of writing. I dislike having to wait to post stuff, as others have said in this thread. I ordered my books from Amazon so far, and they are cheaper. I didn't buy the APA book, instead i bought APA The Easy Way, it cuts through all the junk in the regular APA manual.

    Cultural Diversity is pretty easy, just a decent amount of writing

    For you experienced Chamerlainers:

    I need help picking my classes for the next 2 8 week sessions. I'm really good with Statistics so it should be a breeze for me. I'm worried about the Summer A session. In Spring B I have Collaborative Health and several people in this thread have made it sound like the easiest class at Chamerlain. I'm thinking I should swap a Summer A class with Collaborative Health. Anybody have any suggestions for which? I know I will be overwhelmed either way, but I don't want to have an insane Summer A session with those 3 classes that haven't sounded too easy throughout this thread.

    Spring B
    MATH221 Statistics for Decision Making
    NR361 Information Systems in Health Care
    NR446 Collaborative Healthcare

    Summer A
    NR305 health assessment,
    NR 443 community health nursing,
    NR449 Evidence-based practice

    Thanks for the advice.

    So far I've taken one class at a time, but just finished Information Systems in Health Care, which is probably the easiest class I've ever taken. It has 3 very small papers in week 2-4-6 and discussion posts. THAT'S IT! I loved Stats. I dreaded it. I kicked and screamed, but in the end I got an A. It truly doesn't matter who your personal professor is as long as you watch the live lectures. The live lecturer spoon-feeds the material to you. If you take notes, and print out his hand-outs you will easily get an A. Stats had a final (no midterm) that was 3 hours in length and a bit tough - but again, if you pay attention you will do fine! I did spend A LOT of hours a week on stats - probably about 10-12, where with informatics I spent MAYBE 2. If that. I can't help you with the other classes - I haven't taken them yet - but good luck!

    This May I'll be taking Health Assessment

    Summer A: Cult Div
    Summer B: Econ
    Fall A: Intro to Humanities

    And that takes me to the end of the year! Woo. I'll be done with all the DeVry classes by Christmas.

    Question:

    Anyone who has taken nursing assessment, do you have the sample Power point presentation? My instructor has sent an email out to me twice with the sample, but for some reason when I open it the slide is blank. :/ I've never done a power point before, and just looking for Chamberlain sample (as they seem to provide this for everything Journal articles, APA format papers).

    Thanks!

    I got an example of everything but the power point presentation while in this class. Follow the hand out guidlines for the power point. There are a few websites available for assistance and also call the help line or the tutor service that is provided by the school. They are a great help. If you have microsoft office/powerpoint on your computer, it is pretty easy. Search on the web for ideas.
