Chamberlain University Announces Transition Agreement for More Than 350 Displaced Nursing Students
CHICAGO – October 4, 2022 – To help recently displaced Stratford University nursing students continue their education, Chamberlain University has entered into an agreement with the University to provide impacted students the ability to continue their nursing school education and achieve their career ambitions. Chamberlain University, which has the largest school of nursing in the U.S., remains committed to addressing the critical nursing shortages facing the nation through its mission to educate, empower and embolden diverse healthcare professionals who advance the health of people, families, communities, and nations.
With this new agreement and special arrangements for students who were enrolled in Stratford’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree program and are interested in transferring to Chamberlain’s Tysons Corner, Virginia campus or BSN Degree Online option, Chamberlain will accept students who meet the University’s admission requirements so they can work toward completing their nursing degrees and contribute to the nursing workforce which desperately needs more nurses. After a comprehensive mapping of curriculums, Chamberlain can accept a generous amount of Stratford BSN credits eligible for transfer.
“We are glad to be located near the Stratford University campuses so we can help these displaced students continue their nursing education and dream of becoming a nurse,” said Lindsey Bradbury, MBA, BSN, RN, Tysons Corner campus president. “We have an unwavering focus on delivering academic and service excellence to promote successful student outcomes and will continue with this effort for the new students who enroll.”
Students who apply to Chamberlain and are accepted can enroll as soon as the November 2022 session or have the option to begin with January and March 2023 sessions for Tysons Corner campus or BSN online.
“As an experienced nurse and leader of Chamberlain, I know first-hand the challenges nursing students face, such as intense studying, exhausting clinicals, and some even working full-time, and we are glad to help these aspiring nurses complete their degrees,” said Karen Cox, PhD, RN, FACHE, FAAN, president, Chamberlain University. “Chamberlain recognizes the critical shortage of nurses we have in the U.S., and we do everything we can to support our students and hope our Chamberlain Care® values provide an extraordinary nursing education for these students and will encourage them as graduates to go on to make an impact on healthcare around the world.”
Interested Stratford University BSN students will apply via the normal transfer application process. Application fees will be waived, and applications will be expedited to provide students with the ability to start at the November session. Chamberlain’s Admission and Enrollment teams are planning webinars, on-site meeting opportunities, and tours of the Tysons Corner campus to help interested students learn more about Chamberlain.
For more than 130 years, Chamberlain has been dedicated to academic excellence and student success, providing students with the resources and support needed to become extraordinary nurses. With more than 37,000 students and over 100,000 alumni, Chamberlain continues to have an unwavering focus on delivering academic and service excellence to promote successful student outcomes.
