    Is Chamberlain even an accredited school yet? On their commercials it always says they are still awaiting accreditation from the BON. Be careful!

    yes ma'am they are I made sure I did research. They received their initial accreditation, but just like any new school they have to wait for their first graduation class to continue accreditation.

    I did the online RN-BSN. The curriculum was pretty basic. They have their semesters divided into two 8 week semesters instead of one 16 week long semester. I was able to finish the program less than a year and a half.

    From Long Island, NY. It was okay. I was satisfied with it. I would have liked to learned more about pharmacology and pathophysiology, but most RN-BSN programs I looked at did not offer those type of classes.

    Hello, I'm considering attending Chamberlain. I have a meeting with **** the admission advisor next week. I want to know if they will take most of my classes from my 2yr degree geared toward a BSN. My concern is the class schedule. I would like to keep my current job working nights. I wonder how organized the program is. So many questions and no one to talk to.

    ****is my advisor, she is awesome! Are you sure you want to work while doing a BSN? That would be pretty stressful. I am sure they will take most of your classes, as they did mine. Chamberlain is just like any other nursing school so the classes would be during the day. The program seems very organized and I really love the advisors and every time I call they are always helpful. I would also ask any question you have on their facebook page.

    I know I left this post another thread.. but here it goes again:

    I am also thinking about attending this school and wondered what any current students thought about the program so far... I have done all my research as far as accredidation and BON approval but would like to hear what students had to say about the school...

    Any comments would be appreciated!!!

    Today I found out terrible news from Chamberlain University. Instead of being one of the easier school to get into, it is not so at all. My first degree is in Biology with all of my nursing prereqs out of the way. During my b.s. degree, I attended a community college and a university. If, I were to make a D at the University, I would retake it at the community college for the summer. One semester I made terrible grades and made them up at the community college because it was cheaper. I also took other classes towards another field. I finished with 153hrs. Chamberlain said I had 178. They include the withdraws too. All my prereqs would be a 3.0. but because i didnt make up the classes where i failed at the same school and made them up at a c college they put me at a lower gpa plus having a 178 put me at 48 classes at 4hrs each and all A's to bring my gpa up. How they come up with that ish. Thats damn near impossible. I saw ex classmates that couldnt cut it in the biology that was in their program. I told them their crazy. I only have two D's. Calculus and chem 2 lab which im taking this summer. And you need neither class for a prereq.
