We are a single-purpose nursing college, so every resource – from Career Services to our Centers for Academic Success – is dedicated to preparing students for success in the healthcare system of the future. At Chamberlain, we believe if we take extraordinary care of our students, we will graduate extraordinary nurses who can have a significant and positive impact on healthcare around the world. Care is what distinguishes us – Chamberlain Care.
Class sizes are small, and our nursing faculty members are easily accessible. Students benefit from faculty who have vast industry experience, provide individualized instruction and genuinely care for their students. U.S. News recently ranked Chamberlain College of Nursing’s MSN program among the best online graduate nursing programs in 2015.
Our vast network of nationwide campus locations for pre-licensure students and online flexible options for post licensure students put us in the unique position to provide quality nursing education to the regions that need it most while confronting the nursing shortage on a national level.
Whether a student is an aspiring nurse looking to launch a rewarding career or a nurse advancer building on professional nursing experience, Chamberlain offers the degree programs and options to help them succeed.
Our Pharma Collegē web-based game application simulates patient care through check-ins; reviewing, dosing and administering medication orders; and patient observation and education. The game also features pop-up questions and quizzes to prepare students for nursing licensure exams by enhancing their understanding of medication administration principles, incorporating more than 4,000 unique medication orders that represent over 300 drugs in 150 classifications. Pharma Collegē has been named a finalist for the 2015 SIIA Education CODiE Award in the “Best Postsecondary Learning Solution” category.
Pre-licensure students hone their nursing skills and respond to real-life medical scenarios in the Chamberlain SIMCARE CENTER™. The safe, simulated learning environment replicates hospital and clinical settings, complete with high-fidelity human patient simulators, patient monitoring equipment and physical assessment exam tables.
When students are ready to enter the clinical setting, our clinical model facilitates the process of finding required clinical assignments. Students receive real-world training under the supervision of a professional nurse in a variety of healthcare delivery environments, including hospitals, long-term care facilities, independent practices, ambulatory care centers, VA medical centers and home health environments – anywhere healthcare is delivered.
Our focus on student success extends well beyond the classroom and clinical environments. From the Global Health Education Program trips to Kenya, Brazil, the Philippines and Bolivia, to local causes like Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® and Hydration to the Homeless, students have the opportunity to expand their educational and professional horizons and make a positive difference in the communities where they live and work and around the world.
