Has anyone ever been rejected from Chamberlain? Their goal is profit, not student quality.

Absolutely! I've known a handful of students who have been rejected from that program. Including myself. In Sacramento the campus say's it's benchmark is a 3.0 GPA, but really accepts students within a 3.4 and up. Not to mention, an entry exam (HESI A2) of at least the high 90's to even be considered competitive. The HESI exam is about 6 hours long and tests you on 7 topics that require you to get a good grade in order to obtain that high 90's score they're looking for. The school only has 40 seats open (maybe even less now). I'm not sure why people give the school such a a bad rep. At the end of the day those students sit in the same NCLEX every other nurse had to do.

You have to work hard to get in and stay in this program. Some locations are more competitive than others but make no mistake this program is incredibly challenging.
