You are reading page 3 of Chamberlain College of Nursing - Addison. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

Mimi-

They have three start dates at Chamberlain- March (spring), July (summer), and Oct (fall). The deadline for the spring admission to start in March is November 15 (tomorrow). I am referring to the spring 2009 term. I'm not sure what the deadline is for the summer term... but I'm sure you can find it online really easily. You should definetly make an appointment & talk to someone. There is really not an "early admission", I was told that I was accepted earlier than most people because I had already applied once & been accepted previously, and had to apply again when I decided to wait.

You have to take your A2 before the deadline for the semester you want to apply, as it is a part of your application process.

Hopefully this clears some things up? Let me know if you have any other questions...

thanks n congrats on gettin in! that clears up a lot of things.. i was going to apply for spring semester but didn't find out about the school til a week before the nov15 deadline. so im going to wait and apply for summer semester instead. the sooner i take the a2 the better right? since part of my admission depends on the scores. im trying to hurry before this school becomes more popular and raise all the requirements. are there any changes to the admissions requirements that you know of considering i just found out about this school a couple wks ago.

when you made an appointment with them, did the counselor give you hints on your chances of getting in based off your transcripts? I think my gpa is right around the 2.75 border line. do you think having healthcare experience and an associate degree help me? I've heard a lot of good things from reading this board about the school.. i want to get in!!

do you know how they calculate repeated classes? any suggestions/comments on maybe what i should do to up my chances? take a couple more classes?

thanks:typing:nurse:

Hi,

I just wanted to put my 2cents in. I had applied to the St. Louis Chamberlain and did it after the deadline of July 15 for the fall semester and I still got in. If you want to get in for the spring semester, its probably not too late. Just get your application and transcripts in now so that you can start the process. Also, I had a friend who didn't finish her application process till 3 1/2 weeks before fall semester began, and she still got in.

Oh and as far as the staff and school, Love them! So far, I have had a great experience with Chamberlain. My teachers go out of their way to help you and they are very passionate about teaching.

Good Luck with everything!!! I'm sure you will do wonderful!

I am glad you are having a great experience. I felt my online professors had a true passion for education. Many of my professors also held down full time jobs so they are living the nursing world and immediately share it with the students.

Mimi-

I'll try to answer some of your questions:

the sooner i take the a2 the better right? probably, yes

are there any changes to the admissions requirements? not that I know of, however when I applied for this past fall semester they didn't require a whole lot--- and just one semester later, they now require an interview, and the A2 test. So it would probably be good to keep checking back, although I don't expect a whole lot to change (for example though, now they also want a copy of your syllabus for any A&P classes taken).

when you made an appointment with them, did the counselor give you hints on your chances of getting in based off your transcripts? He was pretty vague about everything, as he has to be--- however I do know that this school has picked up applicants very fast so the sooner, the better your chances are of getting in.

I think my gpa is right around the 2.75 border line. do you think having healthcare experience and an associate degree help me? THe GPA must be a 2.7 minimum. I do not think they take into account the associates degree (I had a BA and it didnt seem to matter) however they do accept credits... and I'm really not sure about healthcare experience, sorry!

do you know how they calculate repeated classes? no clue, sorry

any suggestions/comments on maybe what i should do to up my chances? take a couple more classes? I think you just need to go in and meet with a conselor. Make sure its obvious how willing you are to work hard and how passionate you are about nursing. You have a stronger chance of getting into Chamberlian if you go now, rather than wait.

Hope this helps!

This is a question for anyone who is enrolled or has graduated from the RN-->BSN program that is offered online through chamberlain.

I will be graduating from my ADN program in May...the deadline for the next session is July 15th. How heavy is the work load...if you just count the nursing courses...will I be able to work full-time (also do gen ed. courses transfer from a community college or do they want you to take them at devry?). I am also planning my wedding in october and I will be taking at least a week off for my honeymoon...will I be able to work my school around that or is it too intense?

I am full of questions and would love some information I have spoken with an advisor that has answered some of my questions I just want a "real life" response. Thank You :)

Hey,

I AM in Chamberlain at Addison, and I will tell you that it is NOT EASY at all. You will be working your butt off. At points, you are going to be done OB/newborn, pediatrics, etc. in 8 weeks, so be prepared to give up your job/friends/time/etc. And no, it's not that easy to get in. In my class alone, they only let in 125 students out of like 600-700 applicants, and they don't offer waiting lists. Either you are in or you are not. They don't mess around over there. Your advisors get on you if you grades slip in the slightest, and the nurses will call you in the office if you get below a certain percentage on your exams. Yes, they just recently opened, but the St. Louis campus is known to be one of the best in that area, and the Addison campus is determined to reach this point as well. They do offer your pre-reqs at the school, so yes, you don't need anything done, but they do look at how you did in high school and any other classes you took in college. Everyone there is willing to help you to succeed. My sister is in a nursing program in Arizona, and I had her check out the website. She gave me her thumbs up. So don't be hesitant. If you are willing to put in the work, I promise you that you are going to get a good education there.

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.

Hi. Do you now of a study guide or website that I could utilize to prepare for the A2 exam? I'm in St Louis and hopefully starting in March 09. Thanks.

Hi,

I'm not sure that there is a specific study guide that you can use, but I would look at Borders. I know they have study guides for nursing school entrance exams. I did not have to take the A2, so I'm not sure what is on it. I would ask your advisor and then check those guides. I'm sure they can be pretty helpful. Hope this helps!

Hi guys, I would like to know what pre reqs classes you took at another college for it to transfer over to Chamberlain. Right now I'm at Elgin Community College. I have taken English Comp 1 & 2, Intro to Computers, Intro to Psychology and Development, Sociology, and Chemistry. Would the classes I have taken would they transfer over? Plus, should I just take my Anatomy and Phisiology and Microbiology at Elgin instead of Chamberlain. I plan on appying for the BSN prg in Addision.
