Whoa, whoa, whoa.
I am a Chamberlain graduate, graduated in August. Was Chamberlain my first choice? No. Do I have regrets of going there? No.
I hate to hear people lump us all into a certain group because apparently some of the students "flunked out of UMSL". I personally don't know any of those people but I'm sure they're around. I graduated with one of the last groups of the evening program. Here's a rundown of where a few of us are working, most of us had jobs lined up before graduation.
1. ICU @ St. Johns
2. Step-down ICU @ St. Lukes
3. Trauma? ICU @ SLU
4. Kidney/liver transplant @ Barnes
5. OR @ Children's
6. Myself- Medical/Surgical/Transplant ICU @ Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN
We each passed NCLEX with 75 questions. I expect Chamberlain's pass rate to be much better this year. Unfortunately, we had a group of HESI cheaters that tanked our pass rates. If you want to rip on the "quality" of those, I'll be right there with you.
If we were crappy, we wouldn't be working at these jobs
