Online Doesn’t Mean Alone

RNBSN graduate Tammy Lake

As a student in Chamberlain’s RN to BSN Online Degree Completion Option, Tammy Lake, BSN, RN, never worked in person with her Capstone professor, Virginia Hall, DNP, MSN Ed, RN, CNE – but that doesn’t mean she felt she was going it alone.

“There were times that I just sent email after email, saying I don’t know if this is right,” Tammy said. “Dr. Hall went above and beyond.”

For Dr. Hall, support from faculty is a key part of student success and the student experience at Chamberlain.

“It’s really important to let students know that you care about them as their instructor,” she said. “I always tell my students, don’t panic because we’ll get through this together. I encouraged Tammy and we worked through it, no problem. She just came through shining.”

The two got to finally meet in person at the July 2017 post-licensure commencement ceremony.

“When I saw Tammy walk across the stage, it was like watching my family walk across the stage,” said Dr. Hall. “I’m very proud of her.”
