Man, this has been a rough week... Not with thinking, just with writing. To say that the classes are writing intensive may be an understatement! Except I didn't get either book for Transitions or Health Assessment. Do you think I'll need them?

Hello I started classes July 4th also, actually they enrolled me late so I wasn't able to access anything until that Monday aftr the 4th. I am thinking about withdrawing. Not sure if the money I will pay for the classes will benefit me much when it comes to $. ADN vs BSN. Week 2 and it is going well. Someone please convince me to not withdraw!!! I am taking Health Assessment and Transitions. I haven't purchased the books yet and probably won't if anyone is in these classes and interested in studying together let me know. Here is my email godsfavor6@att.net.... we can then exchange numbers. Anyone in ATL area?? Good luck

Hi Everyone,

I have also started in July with the Transitions Course. I was hoping someone may have an answer to my question about accreditation. I cannot find online accreditation information anywhere and that is scary. Also, I am from NJ and told a few people about the program and when they went to the site, it says they can't accept inquiries from New Jersey residents at this time. What is that about? I would love if someone could help answer my questions....Thanks in advance. :confused:

Thanks Lunah! I am hoping that there is not a problem with NJ residents....I am a little worried about that part. I would think they would have said something to me before I started.

I suggest you call the NJ Board of Nursing. You don't want to waste your time, effort, and money. I hope you get a positive answer.

I, too, live in NJ and am attending Chamberlain U. Please let me know what you find out. I am going to call the Board of Nursing also. I hope that they accept Chamberlain :confused:

The only degree that a BON worries about is the source of initial licensure for the RN, not any RN-to-BSN programs. So I'm a little curious as to what the deal is with NJ.

I read the regulation and hopefully NJ will accept the CCN program in the future. I graduated from CCN last month and got a new job based on having my BSN. Nobody cares where it came from. The ADNs are the nurses having a hard time getting jobs, not so much the BSNs, because facilities prefer BSNs to attain and keep Magnet status (I got this from educatiors at several diffenent healthcare systems). NJ has one of the highest costs of living in the US. If the govenment is so concerned with loans being repaid, then drop taxes, gas prices, and help lower the cost of lining, but leave CCN alone. I feel very well prepared for my practice.

Thank you all for sharing your Chamberlain experiences (especially Lunah). I'm considering Chamberlain, Walden, or American Sentinel. I'm heavily weighted towards Chamberlain after reading all these posts. I see very few posts on Walden and American Sentinel. I do have several coworkers that utilized Walden rn to bsn and rn to msn and enjoyed the experience minus the group projects. American Sentinel has a few positive postings-no regional accreditation?. I plan on taking statistics and comp II locally then transfering summer 2012.

One day I would like to return the favor and share my experiences with all of you.

I should also mentioned that being former military decreases tuition in many of these universities and has influenced my decision somewhat.
