- 0May 11, '09 by MaddieRNI too am wondering about Chamberlain. If I do the fast track online but do not need all of the courses, as I have taken a few elsewhere, can I simply pick as many or as few as I want per session? I know there are not clinicals but what are the learning experiences that I have heard mentioned? I'm wondering if they are community health projects, working with a preceptor, etc? Any information would be greatly appreciated!
- 0May 11, '09 by susannycI'm currently a student at Chamberlain. I've taken 2 nursing courses and am now working on my General Education requirements. Chamberlain is generous with transfer credits. It will take me about 2 years to finish, as I'm only taking 1 course at a time. This is my choice, as I'm working full time. There's a lot of writing involved. Each course lasts only 8 weeks. I'm very happy with the program.
- 0May 13, '09 by luv2yogaI am down to my last 2 classes. There are only 3 courses that have any "experiential" component. In Community Health, you have to select 4 local agencies and then interview the director and write it up. No big deal. In Collaborative Healthcare, you have to find a mentor, either a current Nurse Manager or has been one, and meet with them to discuss 4 topics. I am not sure what you do in the Capstone course (the last one), but I believe it's a project.
- 0Jun 24, '09 by susannycThat depends on how many courses you have to take. Each course is 2 months long. I spend between 5 to 6 hours per week on each course. I work full time and only take 1 course during each 2 month semester. Each week, there is a lecture as well as text book assignments to read. The student also has to participate in 2 discussions each week, a minimum of 3 x in each discussion on 3 different days, beginning no later than Wednesday. There are papers, usually 2 or 3 during the course period. Some courses also require a midterm and final.
I really enjoy the program. I started in Sept 2008, and should finish in Oct. 2010.
