Fostering Learning and Student Growth
In the Center for Academic Success (CAS), you will receive additional academic support from Master's-prepared nurses and peer tutors. Take advantage of a wide range of services, including workshops related to coursework, group and one-on-one tutoring, study strategy resources, test remediation and NCLEX-preparation.
Patient simulators react much like a live patient would— they have vital signs, they voice discomfort, and can blink, sweat or bleed. From privacy curtain areas to scrub sinks to hospital beds, Chamberlain’s SIMCARE CENTER™ facilities closely replicate hospital and clinical settings.
Students are able to gain a deeper understanding of cultural and economic differences through their real-world experiences and the project can be done in place of the required community and multiculturalism health courses by participating in the Global Health Education Program.
I have never gone to a school where it actually felt like family. I want success with my peers, the faculty want success from you. Just to have that community of constant support makes it home. This is my home and I love it here.
