I have not yet started at Chamberlain College of Nursing but I start next month. They have made the process to start so easy for me. Calling me to check up on my progress and not letting me forget any step along the way. Allowing me to come in to the office to help fill out paperwork. I am excited to start in May and any help I can get for the next 3 years is greatly needed and also appreciated. Thank you.

The library is open to everyone. There are computers, study rooms, printers, and a help desk. It's fairly easy to get help if you need it whether it's from staff or students. The printer isn't always working, so students should pay attention when they come in. Sometimes it's packed and sometimes it's empty and quiet. It depends on the time of day and the time of the session. In the mornings it's usually quiet, and in the afternoon it's packed.

There's an area for nursing students where they come to do homework, work on projects, or prepare for exams. There's the general room you come into, the study rooms, and the tutor offices. It's not mandatory to go there, but it's really beneficial for students to show up especially if their grade is not where it needs to be. The staff even sends you a notice if your grade isn't great. They really try to reach out and help, but it's ultimately the student's responsibility to go get it.
To be a student at my school majoring in nursing you have to make sure you have enough free time to do all the studying that is required of you. The homework is usually doable, but studying for the tests can be a lot of work because they cover so many text heavy chapters. You have to do selective reading because you could waste time reading one huge chapter only to find out it's barely covered in the exams. Yes it's important to read everything, but if you have a test coming up you have to be selective of what you review. Focus on the most important things.

The school itself is very nice. It's clean, easy to navigate, and there's a lot of help offered from staff and students. There's also a lot of opportunity to practice your skills so that you can do better at clinical.
The professors are really helpful and offer many opportunities to meet up with students if they need additional help. They're friendly, engaging, and clear with what they require of students.

The class registration process can be hectic. A lot of my classmates have jobs and kids and so they fight for the most convenient times for them, so some of the most wanted hours get taken up fast. Those who aren't there to sign up immediately get stuck with whatever's left. I wouldn't recommend coming here if you have a really busy life. You'll have to make some sacrifices.
Since this is a 3 year program, you have 8 weeks to learn the material of each course and a lot of that learning falls on the student. They have to be competent and on-time and need to check back on the online courses regularly. There's a lot of reading involved from the lecture to the textbook to the discussions, so it can be difficult to focus sometimes. It's usually easy to interact with other students since they're willing to work together towards that better grade.

As someone who prefers on campus experiences because I can ask the teacher questions right away, and overall do better when I get to hear a lecture instead of read it, I think online courses are okay but not that great. They're kind of a hassle to me. The discussions are worth too much and are dependent upon me responding to other people, and I don't like that. I also don't like it that teachers take a while to respond to questions and sometimes they don't even answer what I was asking. They're helpful professors, but they understandably can't answer everyone immediately.
Overall it was an easy process and not stressful to get what needed to be done.

The professors are really well, all there to help even if they are not your professor. Work was average but must be taken seriously.
I have made a lot of friends since starting the program. We have formed close study groups and helped each other gain great grades so far in the program.
Again, I have spoke to graduates and they made it sound like finding a job was simple and they were well prepared.
