Chamberlain College of Nursing - Virginia Reviews
Rating 4 out of 5 53 reviews
I am on my second year of a 3 year accelerated BSN program and I have to say that although it is challenging it is also very gratifying. I received a grant which helped me pay for my education and provided an opportunity to save for the second and third year. If you decide to study at Chamberlain in VA, the year will be broken up into 6 sessions, each session is 8 weeks long. It is generally 2-3 courses per session. You will experience quizzes, group projects, midterms, finals. The actual nursing courses have 3 exams per session instead of 2. I do believe that this school is doing a great job preparing me for my NCLEX so far. I also know a couple of now nurses, Chamberlain graduates, who had passed their boards and had no problem finding a job. Financials wise, the whole 3 years comes up to about $85,000 - $90,000 plus books, uniform. Grant opportunities, government and private loans are always available and Chamberlain does a great job explaining the options to you.
Best of luck!

Chamberlain is generally not an online school. Only general education courses are taught online. However, they did a great job switching to a full online environment for the time of the pandemic. Chamberlain provides various services to assist the online environment.
I liked that everyone was inviting and kind to speak to. Also they teachers were very kind and if you needed help after class they would be glad to stay after.
They were pretty easy and also you should be punctual and on time. Also ask as many question as needed do not ever think low of yourself just because you have more question.
Chamberlain is okay. I don't think I would refer it to anyone else unless they don't have options. Although there are a lot of teachers that will help you if you need it. It is way to expensive to not have a better variety in the times they offer classes.
Chamberlain is a good college and the good thing is that you can finished your degree in a 3-year period. Although it is hard sometimes to deal with school work as this is an accelerated program, if you dedicate the time needed for each class you can learn a lot. Clinical instructors are very good in teaching students what needs to be done and I like that they are strict about patient care and documentation as this is preparing students to be ready to become nurses. The tuition is very expensive and there are things they need to change or improve. For example, they have to provide more supplies for students to practice in the labs, and have new equipment that we can use to practice such as bed monitors, ventilators and others. Overall, this is a good college, location is great and professors are great.
Fast pace but worth it. The Professors are experienced nurses that are super knowledgeable. This school is perfect if you already have bachelor's degree. I like the area it is city/ urban. Near airport and bus and metro. The metro is a main source of transportation around there because of the busy environment.
I like the resources that are available to students and the professors seem interested in helping students succeed. I wish there were more campuses and clinical sites for convenience.
As of right now my experience has be OK at Chamberlain College of Nursing. The academic side of things is pretty awesome, and I have nothing bad to say about it, however the student services side of things needs a bit of work. It is very hard to get to talk to any of the the staff regarding your account if you had questions or trying to get your schedule changed. They also don't the staff capacity needed to run a college campus, I personally believe Chamberlain needs to hire more people to be available for the students to come to in their times of need. They problems alone have forced me to rethink my choice to go to Chamberlain College of Nursing.
I wish I could give this institution four stars but I have been attending three semesters now and have seen many fellow students drop for various reason but all coming down to the horrible class of pathophysiology. The in class session is horrible the teacher does not teach, however the online students are able to take exams at home or receive detail outlines for there exams and get passing grades in comparison to those who come to campus only to have to drop the class and barely hang on and pray they pass. My experience here has been mixed although there are resources like CAS who are amazing at providing help the playing field is not level for the students who come to campus and those who attend classes online. Furthermore is that students frustrations go without being resolved and people become hopeless and drop out.
Chamberlain has a great program. My overall experience has been exceptional; because, the school has many tools to help a student succeed.In addition, they offer a flexibility in the school schedule. Consquently, this helps working adults continue with their endeavors.
I've had a great experience at this school and had the opportunity to meet wonderful people. When I get a little frustrated with certain courses I am able to go to specific people for help.
With on line courses you have more time to get assignments completed, you talk to other students in the discussion form versus being in the class room setting where you actually intervene with everyone. In on line you have stay on top of your work. There very interesting topics.
What makes my school unique is, because of the unique Doctors of Nursing, Professors, Instructors and staff members that makes the school itself unique. It was almost like stepping into your own home, they all make us students feel warm and important students. This schools cares about the interests of their students. They help in what ever way that they can to ensure that their students are passing and not failing. They help by getting us linked to the proper tutors for what ever class we are having difficulty in. I would choose this school all over again because of the enthusiasm that they show.
The classes are small and the professors provide great resources for students.
The online classes are convenient.They are different for attending on campas because you can attend class on your own time.The registration and workload is manageable.
It is a great opportunity for nursing students to experience real life problems and solutions. The curriculum and workload is fair; but sometimes it can be overwhelming because of the 8 week class schedule. So, a student may have to prepare and take a test every week. Lastly, the school also have interships and also prepare students for job opportunities.
