  1. Not really sure. I didn't ask how hard the papers were. Capella was all papers, power points, and video presentations. Writing isn't my strong suit either. It's boring and I would literally just rather take an exam. I'm doing a completely online program right now. Seems easy just that its going to take long. Guess I have to give and take a little bit.
  2. They liked the program and finished within one year. One said it was mostly comprised of papers. Is the program you are in an online RN to BSN? I'm doing an RN to BSN but only taking the electives right now. But the school I go to have a traditional 4 year BSN that is very well recognized in NY and throughout the country. I tried Capella University online and it wasnt for me.
  3. OMG that is crazy! I'm just scared to jump from the college I am at now cause its very well recognized for nursing in NY. Absolutely I will let you know as soon as I know! I've been looking online at reviews everywhere about Chamberlain too. I know two people who personally did the program. But then my husband is telling me just to stay where I am cause it's a good school also >__<
  4. I havent yet. I have another phone call with the admissions rep on Thursday. They have my one out of 2 of my transcripts so far. I'm just nervous about commiting to chamberlain. Im in a RN to BSN program now but just taking electives not expected to graduate till may 2020 and really don't want to wait that long. Thats why I'm interested in chamberlain to be finished sooner.
  5. Hi Stef, Yeah they told me the novemeber classes start on october 26th and that it would be the transition into professional nursing. I would probably only just take this one class cause I'm currently enrolled at another college right now taking 2 classes. How is everything going with chamberlain for you?
  6. Hi, I am on the phone with them now! Seems to be so great! I am looking at starting one class in Novemeber which would be great if you are starting then too!
  7. Hi Stef! I am looking to start January 2021. I believe the start date is 01/04/2021. I am currently taking two electives right now online (Sociology and Theology). I'm really hoping to have to take the bare minimum of classes with Chamberlain. I know a former coworker and classmate who graduated and finished in under a year which is enticing to me! When are you looking to start?
  8. I'm looking into chamberlain too! I am a new grad RN-ADN. Thanks for making this post. Following 🙂

    New Grad RN-Out Patient Dialysis

    Hi kbrn, Can you explain to me what the training looks like? My facility for training is different than my home base location. Is training in classroom with preceptorship? or does it bounce back and forth as well? thank you in advance

    New Grad RN-Out Patient Dialysis

    Awesome. Thanks for clarifying that! I sincerely appreciate it. Yes even the FA said it takes new grads about a full year to actually feel comfortable and confident. I got my books today in the mail. Boy am I feel overwhelmed 😩
  11. Hi All, I'm a new graduate nurse from an associate degree program. My options for hospital positions were limited because basically everywhere requires a BSN. I wanted to stay within the acute hospital setting because that's where I currently work now. And yes I've heard it before if you are matricualted you can still be hired. That is defintely true but I am based in NY where we are have some pretty strict employers who adibe by only hiring the BSN nurse once the degree is (completed entirely). I have landed a job with an outpatient dialysis facility. I basically wanted to seek and speak with anyone regarding how I can be prepare for this new role. I have five years experience as a nursing asst/telemetry techician in a acute hospital setting. Most of our patients who require dialysis are sent off the floor to the dialysis unit. My employer is one of those that don't take ADN-RN's even if matriculated into a BSN program. I have seen bedside dialysis done during covid. I'm just not really familiar with it in it's entirety. However, the nurses were absolutely amazing. Gowned up for 2-6 hours in these rooms providing patient care and monitoring them. Some of the most amazing nurses I've seen. I have a three long month orientation coming up this September! I just want to prepare what supplies I shall need besides a good stethoscope, scissors, penlight, etc. I appreciate any tips, advice, etc. I just want to make sure I have the best mindset going forward to be a safe competent novice nurse. I look forward to working with the demographic of patients and the intricacy of renal care/dialysis. Thank you so much in advance 🙂
