    Chamberlain College of Nursing Sacramento fall 2019

    Yeah same here! Atleast we will find out exact price and dates in June. That gives us about 3 months to prepare for everything which is nice! They do have an online financial aid calculator which is just an estimate but it says i should pay around $41,000 for the whole program and my aid should cover $35,000 of that so if that’s the case I will be ecstatic. I Think I will feel a lot better once I get an actual estimate from the school and what not. I’m not sure of how many people are officially accepted but I know there’s only 25-35 people per cohort.

    @VANurseCA colfax is stunning! I loved auburn as well. I think it just depends on what time we’re gonna have class. With traffic it took me an hour and 56 minutes and then without it took me an hour and 25 minutes. We live really high up in the mountains so it takes a bit longer. It wasn’t worth an hour and a half commute for me especially because I work in Roseville! good luck on your placement tests

    Hey @Lady2020, so I know 4 people going through the program at the Sacramento campus. They have said nothing but amazing things about the professors and said they are set up to succeed. Before tests, there is a review session held in the CAS center. I also know 2 people that have graduated from there and got jobs with local hospitals almost instantly. The Sacramento campus has a 100% NCLEX pass rate which really stands out to me, so if it’s hard it must be do able and worth it since it prepares you for the board exam. I think all nursing schools would be hard. I’m not sure what the full price of chamberlain is but I know if you transfer all the pre reqs and get financial aid the program comes out to about half the price tag. With grants, it may go down even more. To me a BSN-RN is worth it because you will make more money, and have more opportunities to grow. My mom who is a nurse says that by 2022 they will be phasing out LVNs and ADN-RN and only hiring those with a BSN-RN so if needed in the long run, why not invest in your self now? I have family members that work for Kaiser and Sutter and they said that’s a Chamberlain students are actually really eager to learn and have said nothing but great things. I even know a recent graduate from this program that was just offered a ft position w/ benefits at a hospital in this area. As as far as clinical commuting goes I was told the first clinical for everyone is one 12 hour shift/week at a clinic in Lodi, after that they will become more local and shouldn’t travel further than Sacramento or Davis(on rare occasions). All the people I know in the program love their clinical sights and have been to Sutter hospitals , Dignity Health, Vibra Hospital and I think Kaiser (not 100% sure about Kaiser) all within the Roseville/Sacramento area. With any program you’re going to have to commute a little depending on where you live. I think all schools require you to pay within 6 months of graduating. At least that was the case with my medical assisting degree as well as the state school I attended before applying to Chamberlain. I can’t say anything about applying to other schools because up until this next fall the only program I could apply to is Chamberlain since I have pre requisites in progress. I applied to chamberlain last year, and was rejected since they only have 30 spots. However, I did go to delta for my associates degree before moving back to roseville and it sounded like a good program, I know MJC has a program as well as Stanislaus State.

    @Dani_Sanchez777, that doesn’t sound too bad at all, I am finishing my last pre req (micro) this summer! I wanted to save some money on the class because I already have loans from my medical assisting program. You will love A&P , I took anatomy and physiology at Sierra and it is hard but so interesting to see how the body works! the clinicals start after the transition to care ceremony so for me should be around This time next year if I’m guessing correctly, Yay!! As far as I know the first semester of clinical is: year 2-semester 2-session 1, so that’s the session with NR 293 and NR 226

    Yeah I haven’t gotten my schedule yet either. I think we will get it when we attend the new student orientation. I’m just taking a guess those will be my classes since all my stuff should transfer :). I live locally in Roseville!

    Chamberlain Sacramento May 2019

    Any news for those who applied for May start? I applied for September and my advisor told me the committee is meeting the week of feb 18. The wait is killing me! If anyone was deemed academically eligible for May, what are the next steps ?

    My advisor just called me and my Chamberlain score was a 96.9% so we’ll call than 97% haha I’m in the first round of applications for September!! My fingers are crossed for you guys, you both have excellent HESI scores and GPA’s. I’m anxious to hear if we get accepted!! Do you know when you should hear about your status?

    I think for those who applied in May should find out soon! I am applying for September so I probably won’t find out until the end of April! Just torture!

    Does anyone know if we can transfer form the Arizona campus to Sac campus ?

    Hey Maggie, i think you’re going to get in NO PROBLEM! They usually accept a 3.2-3.6 GPA and a HESI of 90.5% and higher! I didn’t have any of the sciences done when I originally took the HESI. I scored 90’s on everything and only 80’s in the sciences which brought down my overall score. I’m going to be applying again in March for the fall 2019 cohort and hopefully I do better since I have taken the sciences, if I don’t get into Sac this time around I’m considering transferring my application to the Nevada campus and then either trying to transfer within back to the sac campus or just sucking it up for two years and take the NCLEX in Cali

    West Coast University spring 2019

    Hey guys! i just got accepted into West Coast University in Orange County. I'm super anxious/excited about starting the program and I was even more in shock to find out that with all the classes I'm transferring I'll only end up with about $40,000 in loans for my BSN degree. I'm really impressed with their NCLEX pass rates (93%) and I'm also glad they are WASC, CCNE, and CBN accredited. Im going to be moving from Northern California (Sacramento) for this program and I was wondering if there's anyone (female) that would need a roommate? I don't want to live on my own because the cost of living can be super pricey in Orange County and I won't be working. Another question I have is how good are the professors? I have a 3.8 overall GPA with A's in most of my sciences but I've alwayd had to study hard. I expect nursing to be the hardest thing I'll ever had to study but I think it all begins with a great professor.. any words of advice from WCU graduates or current students?
