I am currently applying to nursing schools and Chamberlain accepted me but I'm not sure if I should accept or if it's worth it. I have already done my pre req's at my local community college and it's time that I apply for schools. I'm 23 and I just want to get my BSN already. With that being said does anyone think chamberlain is worth it. Need advice ASAP :(

Hello,

Making decision to return to school can be challenging, the need to find a program that fits into your life is a priority. Flexibility, accreditation, affordability, program format and relevance of curriculum should also be something to consider. Though I am not familiar with Chamberlain's program, I am familiar with Wilmington University and can give you some good insight into that program. Whichever program you do chose, use the resources available to you and plan your time wisely. Best wishes and please reach out if you have any questions.

Kind Regards,

Lisa

Why not apply to the community college where you did your pre-reqs? That will definitely save you money and you can bridge to BSN while you are working. Granted, you need to evaluate your community to see if ADN-prepared nurses are easily employed, but definitely think about it! How do you plan to pay for Chamberlain, and what are they estimating your total tuition to be? The best thing you can do is see how much your repaying would be and ask yourself if you can afford those payments.

I think if you completed all your classes, you might want to review the rest of non-nursing classes you need to take so it can be done, so that you do not have to pay as much. Its fast paced 8 weeks/class, and at times you will take 2 classes at a time [ that is if you finished all your non-nursing courses ]. You are expected to read almost everything, so time is important, also get always have a head start on preparing before the actual class week begins.

Depends....how many classes have you done already for nursing? Do you have the time for the community college if it takes longer but saves a lot of money? Chamberlain is $675 per credit, and the school runs on quarter semester schedule so youd be paying anywhere between 3-6k per 8 weeks. I'm choosing Chamberlain for my personal situation. My completed prerequisites are still valid and I will need the min score on the entry exam to become an immediate nursing student. Whereas at a cheaper school my sciences all expired and they require additional courses putting me at 2 more years to complete prereqs to just to even apply. For me, I'm not willing to do that, so for me, the tuition is worth it at Chamberlain.
