    Nurse104-congratulations on your acceptance, things will go really well in the first semester, then it gets a bit nuts in the second, get used to calling them often, yes it is their job...so don't ever think that you shouldn't call them. And to answer your question...I wish it was feasible to move, however I have 3 kids, a husband who is full time Army in a town near where we live and I have a farm. All the reasons I chose Chamberlain in the first place! So I can't relocate...

    As far as the tuition goes, YOU decide whether or not you will get your moneys worth, seriously, this is a 'learn it on your own' situation, so spend the time now before classes start to decide what kind of a studier you are....note cards, notebooks, tape recorder....as soon as class starts you will have several chapters to digest very fast, now is the time to figure out how you will do that.

    Best of luck to you!

    :uhoh21: Well, I got accepted to start in July.

    But for some reason, I am not very excited. Yes, I am glad that I got in but I feel a little about the program. All I need a really good positive feedback about this over-priced school; just one.

    Nik Nik,
    You're in Missouri so I truly wouldn't worry about the program. I think it will be great for you, congratulations!! The Dean is still "reviewing my files" and making a decision on whether they will allow me to begin in March or not (since I will still be in Japan). They said I should hear in about 2 weeks.

    KrisC, I'm so sorry you're going through such a process. What state are you in again, if you don't mind me asking? When I first inquired, my enrollment adviser listed 7 states for me right away, and said if I thought I'd ever live in one I should reconsider. Only 2 of them flat out wouldn't allow Chamberlain, the other 5 DO, but are being VERY difficult about clinicals.

    I am going to apply to the chamberlains online ASN program here in St. Louis. I see that they require the TEAS test or some other admissions test. Did anyone take this for Chamberlain? Im wanting to know if Calculators were allowed and what the school considers a passing grade. Im curious to know what GPA's they are admitting into the school. I currently have a 3.2, but am taking some classes over again. Can anyone tell me of their admissions experience into the asn online?

    The TEAS as VERY EASY. Calculators are not allowed. Takes about 3 hours but it won't take that long. The hardest portion, to me, was the science section. They only require like a 50% to be accepted. I got accepted with only a 2.5 gpa, however, I am not attending and have decided to give up nursing. See website www.testprepreview.com and you can take practice test. The actual is much easier than the online practice test and the study guide. With your gpa I wouldn't bother retaking classes for them. Its more so a lottery than academics to get accepted there.

    Good Luck

    NiKNik-

    Why giving up nursing? Is it the trouble with chamberlain?

    It wasn't the problem with Chamberlain. I just started my current job in October '06 and I really love it here. I have plenty of opportunities for advancement. I was stressed out trying to find out what school I will be able to go to, I will we make ends when I quit my job, etc. My gpa dropped tremendously since I started all of the science classes. Nursing wasn't even a first choice for me, I was initially going to school for healthcare management. I just realized that I can help people without being a nurse. My employer will pay for a large majority of my business degree. Then I will go get a masters in healthcare management to fall back on.

    Congrats on finding what is best for you and your family! That sometimes is the biggest hurdle.

    The issues with Chamberlain certainly brought me to pause and reflection.

    Best of luck to you!

    All I can say is good luck to those of you just accepted to Chamberlain. I hope you are all in the Missouri area. I live in Tennessee. I've been attending there since 10/2006 online. I was supposed to start clinicals right now but all of a sudden...so they say, Tennessee is no longer accepting them. So now they want to withdraw me and I've been sent an offer to refund all my tuition and $1000 to keep my mouth shut. The trouble is....I was on the Dean's List.......they forget that for almost a year I have put my life into this program. Anyone in nursing school knows...it is your life. I begged them to let me come to St.Louis for a couple of weeks at a time to do clinicals (at my expense even) They said I had no option and they were withdrawing me. I've cried as much as I can cry. I've retained an attorney. Like I said.......Good luck to ya'll.

    Hospicetec, how horrible!! Will any of your classes transfer to another school? Not that that will solve everything, but it would be helpful, at least. Yikes.
  13. by   hospicetec
    That was the first thing my attorney asked me to find out! I emailed and called dozens of nursing schools......all have said no, they won't transfer. Most schools have nursing programs that you get accepted into and complete. In other words, I've been told that the classes intermingle with one another. As for Chamberlain/DeVry credits......no one has told me they accept the credits. If you knew how much I studied and how hard I worked at the classes and tests and nursing care plan and essays and going to St.Louis for validations........you would understand why I'm so upset with them. Thanks for the email.
