Student Life Snapshots
Fun and exciting things are happening every day at Chamberlain campuses across the nation. We bring you these stories so you can get a glimpse of campus life and see our extraordinary nurses in action.
Here’s a look at some recent events from a few of our campus locations.
Clinical transitions ceremony
As part of a new tradition, our Addison, IL campus recently held a “clinical transitions” ceremony for students going into their first clinical experience. The campus plans to transition to a full “white coat ceremony” too – an event that has been a part of medical schools for a long time, but recently expanded to nursing schools. The clinical transitions ceremony culminated with a faculty member reciting the “Blessing of the Hands” for the students. View the original Facebook post.
International Nursing Service Project
A group of 12 students from the Addison, IL, Chicago, Arlington, VA and Atlanta campuses recently traveled to the Philippines as part of the latest International Nursing Service Project trip. During their second week, the group flew to the island of Bohol, where they spent four days triaging 3,300 patients and assisted in 81 minor surgeries. View the original Facebook post.
The Chicagoland Chapter of the Chamberlain Alumni Association held a networking event where more than 40 alumni and graduating seniors gathered for pizza, casual conversation and nostalgia about classes, clinicals and late-night study sessions. Door prizes and raffle items were also awarded throughout the evening. View the original Facebook post.
