Ask a Student

What kind of support do professors offer at Chamberlain’s nursing program in Pearland?  

"I really struggled in my last class and my professor met with me one-on-one every week to make sure that I met the benchmark and helped me understand what I could do better to surpass it. After I graduated, she reached out to check in when I was taking my boards, and as I took my first position. She was just amazing, and it was really nice to know someone cared enough to reach out even after I graduated."
