when is the firdt grading waiting class

Has anyone started clinicals? Does anyone know where the clinical sites are?

Lala thanks for yr input. That's encouraging to know u work while. In school! So you have all yr books on yr kindle?

Just some of the books-not all. I don't fully encourage anyone to strictly do kindle or ebooks. I purchased the hardback nursing books and patho, but general education books I used my kindle or evovle, which is a free ebook that you get with your online portion of the general ed classes. They (ebooks) are generally cheaper though so whatever works for you work it!

I got the email too and registered for the March and May session. They also said that we would be able to register for the July session at the end of this month.

I haven't started clinicals yet, but according to the clinical director, they have sites all over the Atlanta area from hospitals, clinics, jails, mental health facilities and more. They said that you will know in enough time ahead where Ur site will be so arrangements can be made. The good thing about Chamberlain in comparison to other schools is that the clinical instructors go are present with you on the site. Also, they don't make you find you find your own clinical location...some other schools do.

I am going to open house this weekend. I met with a admissions rep today and have an appointment with an adviser on Wednesday to talk about transferring etc...One thing I keep reading over and over is the cost of the program being so high. The 7h+ credit cost is $200 per hour which if calculating correct is still cheaper than Kennesaw which comes out to be approx $230 per credit hour. Has anyone else found this to be accurate? I am worried about the finances mostly...

Thanks in advance for any advice!

Congrats to you as well!

Thanks for sharing your information .. I will keep everybody.in my prayers.. Just trying to sort myself out job wise. :-)
I understand! Thanks for the prayers, and best of luck in September!

The wording is very confusing because I was calculating the same way you were! But the way my advisor explained it to me was like this: credit hrs 1-6 is $688... then anything after 6, you add $200. So if you're taking 8, you do 6*688... Then you add 400 (because of the extra 2 credit hrs)

I really hope I explained that where you can understand!

Thx girly!!

No problem!

well thank you..guess what I suffer from math anexiety ...lol .wow!!! is it that accelerated??? Chamberlain is my second choice... a good friend of mine graduated from iuon in 2 years with a Bsn . .but its not good for people who have kids, because you have to live on island for 4 semesters .. thank you for your information about the math... I wish you all the best... feel free to keep me updated

holy crappola!!! wow!! Thanks for the explanation--even though I wish it weren't so! Ehhh....I don't think I can swing that at all...I have three little boys and am a single mother with a almost 20k in loans for the past two years! I am looking at 5k max a semester at KSU so far and with 5-6 to go at the very most....Worst case scenario I am looking at 30k in debt if I didn't even a cent of help from pell...which I will...but I depend on my staffords to help with books, travel expenses and other costs related to my school. I am rebuilding my life and all of these costs stacking up feel overwhelming!!!

I have the same question as Nurse2b337, has anyone taken NUR 224 or NUR 302 online? If so/ or if not would you recommend taking them online?

Thats what am taking now.. but wish i had taken them onsite gosh work load is a lot i hate discussions our exams too are so hard compared to those onsite. God is so good am close to an A right now in both classes.

Thanks! Has anyone heard of anyone getting accepted to a Master's degree program at well known schools after graduating from Chamberlin?

Have you considered doing an ADN program at a community college and bridging to BSN later? Might save you a significant amount of money. Just a thought.

Angelgh you betta do it girl! Yes! His mercy endures forever keep it up! How do u know about the difference in workloads? I don't mind the discussions and content questions. Lol!

We all wanted that route but trust me Atlanta don't have much nursing programs compare to most states, that's why we all piled up with chamberlain. Is expensive but worth it and like the fact that they fast pace for a BSN program.

I think , but don't quote me on this they have a masters program

How it is different as far as the class, just more work? I am trying to decide what to do take them online or onsite. I will have to take NUR 302 online bc the days conflict with my work schedule. So is One more harder than the other?

Hi all! I don't know if these questions have been asked before but I would really love everyone's opinion since you all have already started your nursing journey and I'm still hoping I can get in somewhere, I currently have a 2.8 at Georgia Perimeter and am currently in AP2. I had a hard time with Statistics and Economics over the summer and they dropped my GPA.. I know Chamberlain's min. gpa that they accept is 2.75. Does anyone know how my low GPA will affect my getting accepted? I currently have A's in A&P2 so I'm hoping that boosts my gpa before I apply.

Also, how have you all handled the accelerated 8 week classes at Chamberlain?

I'm a PCT at Emory right now, and just from the experience I'm gaining, it's just more confirmation that I am called to be a nurse. *fingers crossed*

Congrats to all who've been accepted, passed the HESI, and all the other great things happening for everyone!

The main issue that I have heard from the students taking the 224 & 302 online is that they do not get all of the information for labs and lab check offs. While they still have to attend a lab onsite, their lab intructors were having issues with getting access to their online course shell. So, if they had a weak lab professor they were struggling to get information for check-offs. They claim that the tests are harder too because of all of the "select all" questions that they have online. If you miss one of the choices in select all... you miss valuable points. On the other hand, I know of three ladies specifically that are repeating the course online and are doing fine on their second attempt.

I am taking those classes onsite this session and have had no problems. It is nice to have resources in front of you, or just down the hall to clarify questions and provide tutoring if needed. I decided to take these classes onsite because I feel that they are too important not to understand completely. After all this is the basics that everything else builds on. I was afraid I might cheat myself if I took these courses online.

Hello Kaypo nice to see another fellow GPCer on here. I too am taking A&P 2!! I've yet to take economics or stats. Who was yr Econ teacher if u don't mind me asking. I'm thinking if taking stats at Chamberlain next Fall.

Hi,
The Atlanta campus is just opening. I will be transfering there in June from the Arlington VA campus. This school is no joke. It is hard once you get into Fundamental, Health Assessment, and Patho all together. It is very fast pace. The are 8 wk sessions. It goes so fast that sometimes I wonder if I am retaining all the info. Be ready to work your butt off. Kiss your social life goodbye. I hardly have time to go to dinner with my family. I am not trying to discourage you but I want you to know the real deal. Good luck
Sonja

Anyone has a NR222 book they would like to sale?

The two is very easy but with patho is a big no no
Thanks so much for the advice.

Ikegrad2002, most of everybody I know at Chamberlain had to take out a private loan so you're not alone lol. Go ahead and start applying now. I know a lot of places will tell you as soon as you finish if you're approved or not, Sallie Mae and wells Fargo do. If you can't get one talk to your advisor. I couldn't get a private loan and they're working with me.

Yes, I'm just as surprised and thankful lol at Nurse2b7337

I''m anxious to know the same thing! I took all of my prereqs already and I would HATE to have to take them over again. If they are accepted I should only have 2 yrs also. Are you currently working?

Thank you Sonja. Actually this is not discouraging at all. Hard work is expected. I don't have a social life anyway lol.

Does anyone know when in the curriculum we will need our Nurse Lab Kit?

Akilah530,
I'm sure your credits will transfer. I had 45 transfer credits. I don't know what they cover in orientation either. But in pre enrollment you will go over financial aid and your transfer credits. You will also schedule your drug test and that has to be done within 48 hours.
dalencia,

Thats wonderful that you had so many credits transfer over! Did they advise you of what transferred during pre-enrollment? How about loans/financing? Are you paying out of pocket? Or were you able to get everything covered via financial aid/loans? This is the one thing thats bugging me.

Congrats!!! Glad you made it.

Hello everyone I passed the Hesi with 88.3%!!!!! So glad it's over......now onto Summer School before Sept 2!!!!

Does anyone know when in the curriculum we will need our Nurse Lab Kit?
NR 224 and 302. Start ordering them now.

dalencia, THANKS SO MUCH HUN!!!! WILL DO!

@ Teah Ok Kool! I go next week to speak with student services and financial aid. I will probably be taking Logic & Critical thinking, NR 222, and Patho I guess being that I've completed everything else. Guess I will see everyone next year at orientation in Jan.

Thanks so much!

I do work 4 days a week right now. I want to keep my job if at all possible. They are willing to work with me if i can work 2 days a week there. My advisor told me that some classes are online and some are at the school. I live in Acworth, so it's going to be a drive for me in the mornings. Are you planning on working while in school?

Thx angelgh!! The critical thinking part was very interesting!!

@ Teah for financial aid after loans and pell grant; will you still have to pay out of pocket? Didi you apply for any scholarships? Just hoping that everything works out where I don't have to pay out of pocket.
