At Chamberlain College of Nursing, our students have something special. They are eager to learn, confident in their skills and determined to make a difference in their patients’ lives. Learn more about what it means to be a Chamberlain nurse.
At Chamberlain College of Nursing, we’re proud of our 123-year history and heritage. While we’ve said goodbye to the traditional white nursing caps of 1889, we continue to embrace and build upon the vision of our founders through the preparation of compassionate and knowledgeable graduates.
"My professors have shown my fellow students and me that we are their top priority, and our success is an extension of their own."
— Mary '12, bachelor of science in nursing graduate
As a single-purpose nursing college, every resource is dedicated solely to setting our student nurses up for success— from Career Services to our Centers for Academic Success. Class sizes are small, and our nursing faculty members are easily accessible to students. U.S. News recently ranked Chamberlain among the top five online graduate programs in nursing in the faculty credentials and training category.
Chamberlain College of Nursing is committed to making a positive difference both locally and globally. Through our International Nursing Service Project, Chamberlain student nurses have educated and treated thousands around the world, in countries including Kenya, Brazil, the Philippines and Bolivia. From the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® to local food drives, read more about the many ways that Chamberlain Cares!
Chamberlain nurses are seasoned from day one. Pre-licensure students first heighten their nursing skills in SIMCARE CENTER laboratories. From car accidents to childbirth, students react to real-life medical scenarios in a safe environment, tending to high-tech patient simulators. The mannequins react in much the same way as a human would.
Nursing clinicals further enhance student learning. Clinicals are held in a wide variety of healthcare settings— read about one recent pediatrics clinical at the Muscular Dystrophy Association Summer Camp.
As nurses, we understand the challenges of balancing the pursuit of an education with personal and professional considerations. For students hoping to become a nurse, our programs are offered in locations around the United States. With no waiting lists and accelerated options, Chamberlain students have the opportunity to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree in as few as 3 years*. For licensed nurses aspiring to take the next step in their career, Chamberlain offers online options tailored to fit the needs of busy nurses. Students are able to learn online, on their time.
*The on-site Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree program can be completed in three years of the year-round study instead of the typical four years with summers off.
