  1. I honestly cannot remember as it was 8 or 9 years ago, but I did need a lab component in order for it to be accepted. It did have a lab component. You can call and asked them!
  2. Hello woodsynyMSN,

    I wanted to get some info on Chamberlain MSN program, and I am hoping you can fill in the gaps. How heavy is the workload? Is it discussion/paper or proctored exam? Can you work full-time and stay on target? Are there any demanding courses (i.e. huge papers)? Any info will help.

    Thanks in Advance,

    John C. Martinez, RN

      woodsyny, MSN

      I took one class at a time and it was fine. Eight week sessions, usually three big papers in the eight weeks and discussion board posts each week. I did not have any exams but graduated three years ago, and the program has changed I heard.
      I work seven days in two weeks so just had to use time-management. It is not an "easy" program, but very doable. I now teach for Chamberlain online in their BSN program so it was worth it to me! Hope this helps!

    Esther, I graduated 2 years ago in the MSN in Ed at Chamberlain. I never physically had to be in a classroom and did not have to do any video presentation. That could have changed. Hope this helps!

  10. Online CHEM LAB (without lecture portion)

    I know when I was in my BSN program that many students did Biology and Chemistry online with Clovis College. Very reasonable and many said it was great. Don't know if they still over it. That was about 4 years ago.

    Eli, It is still in effect, but don't know if it will be by the time you graduate. It is by word of mouth the residency program.

    Beth 2511, I found Chamberlain very accommodating for my MSN in education. I know many schools, not just Chamberlain have problems with clinical sites for FNP.
