- Jun 13, '11 by Ashley14To those who have just gotten into Chamberlain, how was the application process? What was your GPA, Hesi score etc......?
- Jun 16, '11 by Nurse.WannabeI am also looking into this program, for fall 2011. Does anyone know when the application deadline is?

In my opinion, the app' process was very smooth. They have great advisors who are with you all the way. When you call they are glad to answer any of the questions you may have. I was applying for summer semester which starts July 5th. I began my process mid february, took all tests, e.g HESI, urine and drug test etc. I was done with all the procedures by April. You get conditional acceptance based on your scores/GPA/HESI and upon passing the urine and drug test that's when you get your final acceptance into the program. It's a step by step process but very easy. You sit for the HESI no more than 10 days after applying. I didn't know this until I applied. I barely had time to order the HESI book and study. The HESI isn't bad (I literally spent 7 hrs browsing through the book).
HESI score 92%
All prereqs done
If you have atleast a 3.0 GPA and HESI in the high 80s (HESI pssing score is 75%) then you should be hopeful.
They have ongoing application and ongoing selection. Fall semester starts October 24th. As long as you have what they need by then - HESI, you will be fine. You don't have to have certain pre-reqs before being accepted, you can finish (if you have any) your pre-reqs at Chamberlain at approx' $620 per credit. Feel free to as more questions.
- Jul 15, '11 by diamondhopehey you guys who started on July 5th, how is it going so far and when does the next class take in? an update on me: Im currently in a 7 week cna program that didnt end in time so i decided to start in the next cycle at chamberlain. Man cna work is hard, but I think its going to help me a lot with my bedside manner and in the arena of experience. Plus, Im trying to get a hospital job after I get my certification and get them to pay a portion for my RN classes~ have to save my pennies lol.

- Aug 3, '11 by Ready77Hello,
Do you mind me asking where you took your CNA course. I'll be starting an evening course on Sept 13th with the American Red Cross. I'm taking pre-reqs at Nova currently. Like everyone else Nova's admissions processs to any of their medical programs is so discouraging. I did an orientation with Chamberlain over a year ago but, was hesistant about the school b/c no one had heard of them. I also called GMU and asked about obtaining a Master's once I'd finished at Chamberlain and they said they'd never heard of it.I'm hoping that has changed now
- Aug 3, '11 by Ready77Hi Nicole Lee,
Do you think the quality is in alignment with the school. I'm asking because I was with UOP, which is costly and their courses didn't compare with Nova. I'm hoping to take all my prereqs at Nova and then start at Chamberlain next fall 2012. What are your class sizes like? Do you feel like they're really concerned about you doing well or do you feel like it's all about the money for them? Also do you know what you have to do if you want to transfer to another state after you are licensed to practice nursing? Thanks in advance
- Aug 3, '11 by Sammy04I have a associates degree from Nvcc and just applied to chamberlain and the advisor said I said I should have no problem of getting in. I hope this is true. I applied to the bachelors program which is 3 years but because of all the classes I've taken it will take me 2 years. I'm really excited. You don't need preqs but if you have them it helps. I hope I get in for the October 24th classes. I was very impressed with the school and they are accredited so if you want to get a masters at George mason the degree and credits would transfer.
- Aug 4, '11 by Ready77Quote from Sammy04Thank you Sammy04. Seems like a lot of people are getting their non-nursing courses done through NVCC and then transferring to this school. An advisor from Chamberlain told me that this is actually a cheaper route.
