There are many Chamberlain grads that have secured employment before they have even taken the NCLEX, I would say that what you have heard is not 100% true. There are grads that are in many major hospitals in the Medical Center, The Woodlands and County hospital, they are the places that I am aware of.
How do I personally like the school? I like the what the school stands for, I like what the school is trying to achieve however, I've had many issues that have had me thinking whether I personally had made the right decision. I'm doing a lot of soul searching at the moment.
At 40 I was not prepared to wait another year to start at a community college or state university. Being a military family we have moved a lot and I wanted to be able to start and finish within this last move before my husband retires. I guess what I can say is do your own soul search, read reviews, check NCLEX scores and take it from there.
I hope this at least partially answers your question
