    Hi twins_may,

    I'm a student at chamberlain and I'm about to start my fund/health assessment/ patho courses in the next semester. I started in July and I completely understand your anticipation for your acceptance. I received a phone call before I got a letter. I got my phone call the day before orientation after waiting about a month. So I'm sure it varies based on when your advisor submitted your application to the committee. My advice is to contact your advisor because from my experience everyone hears their decision at different times. Good luck! I hope you get accepted!

    Thank you very much and congrats on getting in. Its been about a month but feels like a year! And I think it would have gotten submitted later had I not called my advisor (he didnt realize that he had all of my paperwork!!!). So hopfully everything else will run more smoothly. How do you like it so far?

    I totally understand the feeling. I felt like I was getting ulcers because the wait was so stressful. I really like it here so far. I've only had 2 nursing classes and finished my 2 gen Ed's I didn't complete at my other school. The nursing teachers are very helpful. I'm so excited (but a little nervous) to start my cohorts in a couple weeks! I hear the first 2 ( patho/funds/ health assessment and med/surg/pharm) are difficult but I'm up for the challenge! Hope you get good news this week!

    Good luck in your cohort!!! I'm just getting out of the cohort you're going into! Stay focused, not at all like 101 or 222! But it's so much fun!

    Thanks pamski! I noticed on the textbook website that we need ALOT of books for next session. Did you use all the suggested books for health assessment, patho, and funds? I understand we need the main text book but the extra study guide books, nursing diagnosis, med terminology, clinical calculations, medical dictionary, drug guide, or diagnostic & lab test ref? It seems like alot of material which further enhances my nerves for this session...

    I still use everything BUT the extra study guides. Total waste of money.

    Does Chamberlain have actual real patient clinicals? Or is it all simulation?
  11. by   pamski0069
    You actually have more clinicals than simulation at chamberlain.
