Congrats to everyone that got in so far. I as well got a phone call yesterday that I was accecpted. I am still a little worry about the accreditation becasue I was just going to look into a intern postion at a hospital, but it states that you must have completed one semester from an accredited BSN nursing program. Not sure how thats going to work when the Atlanta campus is not fully accredited yet. Any suggestions?

aww man...i wish i knew what to tell u. Anything you choose will be a struggle, it seems. The only advice i can offer up is to discuss it with ur hubby and see what ideas/compromises you all might be able to live with.

@jsayers11

i did some research...

hey i found this post on another thread:

feb 24, '11 by steph120

hi there! i work at chamberlain and i can help answer your question about the chicago campus accreditation.

the bsn program at chamberlain college of nursing was accredited by the commission on collegiate nursing education (ccne) for a ten year term in october 2004. the ccne accreditation includes all campuses at which the bsn program is offered.

the national league for nursing accrediting commission (nlnac) accredits each individual campus that offers the bsn program. according to nlnac policies, an individual campus is not eligible for initial accreditation until the time of graduation of its first class.

then i found this...

chamberlain college press release:

important chamberlain communication: accreditation update — january 5, 2012

chamberlain college of nursing has been committed to providing our students with a quality nursing education and student experience for more than 120 years. it is with these principles in mind that we are notifying you of a recent update in our elective programmatic accreditations.

chamberlain is accredited by the higher learning commission (hlc*), a regional accrediting agency, and has maintained elective programmatic accreditation with the commission on collegiate nursing education (ccne*) and the national league for nursing accrediting commission (nlnac*) at select locations. we have reviewed our elective programmatic accreditations and have made a purposeful decision regarding chamberlain’s nlnac accreditation.

chamberlain currently maintains nlnac programmatic accreditation for the bachelor of science in nursing (bsn) degree program at the st. louis and columbus locations. additionally, we have been exploring nlnac programmatic accreditation for the bsn degree program at the addison, arlington, chicago, houston, jacksonville and phoenix locations. after careful review, we have elected to withdraw those candidacies, effective immediately.

in reviewing our accreditations, it became clear that maintaining programmatic accreditation for the bsn degree program with two separate accrediting agencies is an unnecessary investment of time and resources from our operational and academic staff. few schools of nursing maintain both nlnac and ccne accreditation, and most bsn degree programs seek only ccne accreditation. after much consideration, we have opted to maintain programmatic accreditation with ccne, a leading specialized professional accrediting agency. we will continue to pursue ccne accreditation for new programs and locations and not pursue candidacy with nlnac for our bsn degree programs. this decision enables us to better focus our resources on enhancing student programs and services.

chamberlain plans to retain nlnac programmatic accreditation for the bsn degree program at the st. louis and columbus locations until it expires in fall 2012. we also plan to maintain nlnac programmatic accreditation for the associate degree in nursing program at the columbus location.

chamberlain is an accredited institution. this change does not affect chamberlain’s institutional accreditation from hlc nor our status of having programmatic accreditation. chamberlain plans to maintain programmatic accreditation by ccne for our bsn degree program at all of our current and future locations and for the master of science in nursing degree program. we are confident that the in-depth review and examination we receive from hlc and ccne demonstrate that chamberlain delivers the quality nursing education you expect.

if you are a current student who is receiving tuition reimbursement from a healthcare institution that has a question about chamberlain’s accreditation status, please contact your chamberlain student services representative. chamberlain is happy to work with you and your employer to provide detailed information on our institutional and programmatic accreditations.

chamberlain will continue to measure itself against the highest standards of academic excellence. we are communicating these changes to you to assure you that our decision to drop nlnac accreditation has no impact on the quality education you receive or chamberlain’s status as an accredited institution.

Thanks Sharieka Alicia! I guess I will just apply and see what happens. If you don't mind me asking are you planning on taking out student loans to pay? I am going to have to I guess. I'm so excited to start and I know it will be worth the debt. When are you taking your drug test and aid appt?

Yes, I am definitely doing student loans...can't afford it otherwise lol. I'm so excited I don't know what to do with myself! I'm waiting on my adviser to get back to me with my next step. She said I will be meeting with fin aid and doing my background check and drug screen within the next 2 weeks so we'll see. My acceptance letter says I have to get everything done by the 5th of July. How about u?

I noticed my letter said the same thing, but he made my appt on July 12th. It's the drug screen and background check. He told me once you meet with financial aid you have 48 hours to take your drug test. Not sure if that's at the school or elsewhere. I just really want to know what transfer classes they are going to accept. I only have 5 but made A's in them and would hate to have to pay to retake them. My advisor said if they accept all of them I would only have to go for 2 years. Yay. Can't wait to meet everyone.

I do work 4 days a week right now. I want to keep my job if at all possible. They are willing to work with me if i can work 2 days a week there. My advisor told me that some classes are online and some are at the school. I live in Acworth, so it's going to be a drive for me in the mornings. Are you planning on working while in school?
