You are reading page 2 of Chamberlain College of Nursing - Addison. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

so please ignore my above statements. I just got the email this afternoon informing me of all the changes that they have made (that test is comparable to the TEAS test) with some other new requirments for March '09 applications.. BOO

I took the Teas Test for Chamberlain and it was a basic test of math, english, science, etc. From what my admissions advisor told me, the A2 test is harder, it has harder math, more A&P, etc.

If you do a google search for both tests you can get an idea of their content.

Good luck and I hope this helped.

I have been reading the various threads on Chamberlain College of Nursing.

I just graduated from the online RN-BSN Sunday. I am sooooooo pleased with the program. I am one proud and well educated graduate.

It is a top notch program. I can't attest to the onsite programs....but with the online program being excellent...I know you will not be disappointed.

Be prepared to work!!! But that is what it is all about. You are never alone because the professors and support staff are outstanding.

Plus they are CCNE accredited.

They have me so excited that I am looking forward to the world of graduate school now.

BSN RN 10/26/08!!:nurse::yeah:

You are quite welcome. Because I am already an RN-- I did not worry about the "pass rate" of the students who take the state boards. Just check to see what the percentage is for your comparison.

In regards to taking courses for the prerequisites at other schools...that is fine to do to save money. FYI: Chamberlain is affliated with DeVry University so your Stats, Adv. Comp, Algebra etc may be offered through them. DeVry has excellent professors also. For example: My Stats professor was a NASA rocket scientist but he explained it so I could understand it and apply it. I felt that I gained so much more than going to my local community college with all due respect. I just loved the online experience and the worldly experiences it provided. One of the DeVry students in a course was in Iraq by the way.

Chamberlain is in the works for a Masters in Nursing so I will be curious to review that program. I hope they roll it out pretty soon!

Good Luck. The nursing profession will be blessed to have you.:typing

If you don't mind me asking what is your GPA. I also applied for March but have not heard anything yet and was told that I would hear by the end of December. Did you have to take the HESI a2. If so do you remember how you did if you don't mind me asking. I have a pretty good GPA but I am not sure what my chances are of getting in. Thank you in advance.

I'm not sure who you were asking, but I'll answer :)

My overall GPA was 3.6, but the science classes I am taking right now will be sure to lower it a bit :) I did take the A2 and I think I got around an 80% (not the highest, I know, I didnt get the study guide until 4 days before the test).

As far as admission, I was called & accepted last week with "early admission", however I think it was because I was already accepted for the fall term & decided to wait for financial reasons. I am sure you'll find out sooner than later--- if you have a good GPA & got an average school on the test, I'm sure you'll be accepted. Right now we have a huge advantage since the school is not widely known yet, my guess is that a year from now it will be a lot more difficult to get into. I'm looking forward to meeting you if you decide to attend!

My situation is a bit different for enrollment at Chamberlain.

Because I have been a practicing RN for 21 years, I was in the BSN program. I did not have to take that test called A2 (honestly not familar with it) you mentioned.

But--I worked really hard as a student, hours upon hours, to earn my 4.0. I was working part time which was a blessing to me.

They went out of their way to get me enrolled in the program as soon as possible. I was pleased with their promptness. Keep in communication with them. They are very approcable by phone and email. When I had a request while a study--they dealt with it immediately.

I hope they get the MSN program up and running soon.

hi there. im new here, but when did you apply for march admission? march as in for summer 09 admissions correct? i thought march admission is not open yet? When does early admission end do you know? Also, do you have to take the A2 right after you apply or can you take it on your own tme when you are ready? Im thinking since part of admissions is based off of the A2 scores, so right away correct?

i'm thinking of making an appt and talking to teh counselors to see how i do compared with others competng for admissions. would taht be a good idea u think?
