Originally established in 1889, Chamberlain College of Nursing is leading the future of nursing education. The school evolved from a diploma school of nursing to a college of nursing, offering both ASN and BSN degrees. Ready for departure from its former identity, Chamberlain College of Nursing is capitalizing on the strength of the solid, historical foundation of being a century old university and the ingenuity of a new, progressive and expansive nursing program. The new name derives from the Middle English word chaumberlein which means "chief steward", as nurses have become the chief steward of progressive patient care.
Chamberlain College of Nursing (CCN) continues to expand its original mission to provide quality and innovative healthcare education. By providing nursing education programs that feature a broad educational foundation and extensive clinical practice component, the college fulfills its commitment to prepare compassionate and clinically proficient nurses, as well as to foster personal growth, career mobility, community service and leadership among healthcare professionals. Responding to the nation's critical and growing nursing shortage, Chamberlain has increased access to nursing education as well as expanded online programs and continues to consider opportunities to open new campuses in markets nationwide.
