Why Chamberlain?

“I was in a different nursing program prior to Chamberlain. I just didn't really have supportive people or the accountability that I needed. I didn't take the traditional route by any means. Just because you didn't do it the traditional way doesn't mean you're going to be any less of a nurse.”
