    I have been trying to research this school and can't find many people willing to talk about it. Does anyone have any input? I am looking at the oncampus lpn-rn program. according to their website, you can still apply for fall semester. If anyone has any kind of infor. please help I don't want to move to St. Louis and find that I made a mistake. Thank you

    Hi,
    I just graduated and am fairly new to this game but my first instinct would be to go directly to the nursing board for that information. I also wouldn't want to take any chances. Jules

    Just graduated from this college of nursing and according to rumor theyare not going to take anyore out of state students but you can call this number and ask 1-800- 942-4310, however I would not recommend this scholl...try st. louis commuity college which is within walking distance of chamberlain. I hear it is more organized than Chamberlain and they change the rules as they go along and you become very frustrated ... need I say more.

    Are you saying that you would not recommend this school (chamberlain college of nursing) for other people to attend? I was just wondering because I am doing research on this school and other schools as well for which to attend. I am trying to decide where to go.

    I have been taking the online classes since April. I will be finished next April. I looked into the school and also called the BON. But I actually found their ad in the Momentum that we get from the Board. I also called some schools around here to see if I could go on the get my masters after graduating from Chamberlain and they all said that my credits from this school would transfer because they have all of the needed accredidations. So far I haven't had any problems with the school other than some of the online classes are kind of hard.

    I went to Chamberlain College of Nursing for one year, and quit last May. It was a terrible experience. They have a new dean and a lot of new teachers. Everything is VERY disorganized, and many, many people fail out. I regret going there, and if you talk to a lot of people that still attend, you will hear similarities. Chamberlain has recently been investigated by the state due to low board passing rates. I would advise looking into Barnes or a community college.

    I recently graduated from Chamberlain- Online with my BSN. The degree itself was cause enough for celebration but the fact that I no longer had to deal with the school made we want to celebrate even more. My entire experience was wrought with issues, one after the other. Just when I thought that I could anticipate a problem, something else entirely reared its ugly head. I am actually embarrassed to say that I have attended and most certainly would not recommend the school on any level. It's rather unfortunate.

    The board pass rates on the Missouri BON website have not been good. I think last year's was marginally better than the previous year but still not great. The on-campus program has better pass rates than the online.

    I am just finishing my 5th class through Chamberlain's online RN-BSN program. What kind of problems did you run across? Other than the ridiculous price, I've only had a few other issues. Why do you say you're embarrassed? I don't think I would do this program again, though. I started it because I thought I would finish a lot quicker than I will. It will take me about 18 months.

    I'm just curious. Any advice or warnings you could give me would be much appreciated.

    I'm planning to begin the Online RN to BSN program next week, unless I change my mind in the next two days. The advisor has been helpful but aggressive, reminds me of a annoying salesman. Her approach is making me suspicious on a number of levels.
    jlhhappy: What kind of issues did you encounter? I would think the online forum would remove a lot of the typical campus problems.
    sargentrn: Please explain why you would not "do the program again".
    Thanks.
