At our Houston campus, you can take the first steps towards your nursing career with the CCNE accredited* Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree program. The three-year BSN program has no wait lists or prerequisites, giving our BSN students the opportunity to earn their degrees faster than the traditional four-year institutions.

Chamberlain graduates can sit for the NCLEX-RN® sooner, and start their careers before their counterparts.


3-Year BSN Program

3-Year BSN Program

Chamberlain College of Nursing's Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree program enables students to earn their BSN degree in as few as three years of year-round study instead of the typical four years with summers off, allowing students to enter the workforce sooner than their peers at other higher education institutions.

  • CCNE-accredited* BSN degree program
  • Available at 20 locations across the country
  • High-tech nursing labs and experienced faculty
  • No wait lists


Chamberlain’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) curriculum is designed to advance students’ ability to retain and apply essential knowledge. The focus is on conceptual learning, giving students the skills to translate theory into practice.

Hands-on experience in both the Chamberlain SIMCARE CENTER™ and the on-site clinical setting allow nursing students to work side-by-side with faculty, mentors, peers, and experienced professional nurses as they refine their direct patient-care nursing skills.

The BSN degree program consists of a minimum of 122 credit hours: 56 credit hours in liberal arts and sciences and 66 credit hours in nursing.

SimCare Center

Life-Like Reactions

Patient simulators react much like a live patient would— they have vital signs, they voice discomfort, and can blink, sweat or bleed. The high-tech simulators are controlled remotely by instructors, who can alter the mannequin’s physical and verbal responses. The labs provide a safe environment for students to advance their knowledge, hone their nursing skills and learn from their mistakes.

Labs Replicate the Hospital Setting

From privacy curtain areas to scrub sinks to hospital beds, Chamberlain’s SIMCARE CENTER™ facilities closely replicate hospital and clinical settings. As part of Chamberlain’s commitment to academic excellence, the SIMCARE CENTER™ is also supported by a resource center that helps with the development of complex skills like medication calculation.
