Warm regards, Carla Sanderson, PhD, RN Provost Chamberlain University 2 CHAMBERLAIN UNIVERSITY / Academic Catalog / 2018-2019 CHAMBERLAIN UNIVERSITY / Academic Catalog / 2018-2019 3 An Extraordinary Legacy OUR HISTORY 1889 – 1990 1889 – THE SCHOOL FOR DEACONESSES IS ESTABLISHED For more than 125 years and dating back to the Deaconess tradition of 19th-century Europe, Chamberlain University has been preparing extraordinary healthcare professionals. Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing, studied at a Deaconess facility in Germany and later applied the concepts she learned to her nursing practice. In 1889, an evangelical pastor in St. Louis proposed establishing healthcare services based on the Deaconess model to address the needs of the local community. Those services evolved into The School for Deaconesses and, later, the Deaconess College of Nursing. FROM A DIPLOMA SCHOOL TO A COLLEGE OF NURSING 1983 – Deaconess begins offering a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree program 1989 – Associate Degree in Nursing program established 2007 – 2011 2012 TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE 2007 – Chamberlain adopts the use of high-fidelity patient simulators to better prepare graduates for the profession ADVANCED DEGREES TO ADVANCE CARE 2009 – Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree program established 2011 – Chamberlain Phi Pi Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau (STTI), the International Nursing Honor Society is established INTERDISCIPLINARY COLLABORATION Chamberlain establishes its first joint Global Health Education Program experience to Kenya with Ross University School of Medicine Chamberlain partners with Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI), The American Nurses Association (ANA), National League of Nurses (NLN) & The National Hispanic Nursing Association UNITING OVER 52,000 * ALUMNI WORLDWIDE Chamberlain Alumni Association established TRANSFORMING CARE THROUGH EDUCATION & TECHNOLOGY * Chamberlain University and Deaconess College of Nursing graduates, Chamberlain National Register, April 2018. 4 CHAMBERLAIN UNIVERSITY / Academic Catalog / 2018-2019 1991 – 2005 2006 A PIONEER IN ONLINE LEARNING 2000 – Deaconess College of Nursing enters the world of online education with a new option that allows registered nurses to earn their bachelor’s degree online NEW OPTION ELEVATES NURSING EDUCATION LEVELS 2000 – The RN to BSN degree completion option established 2001 – LPN to RN Bridge option established 2005 – Adtalem Global Education (formerly known as DeVry Education Group) acquires Deaconess College of Nursing Extraordinary Care. Extraordinary Nurses. 2006 – The Deaconess’ name is changed to Chamberlain to reflect the College’s expanding vision of the future. The word ‘chamberlain’ derives from the Middle English word ‘chaumberlein,’ meaning chief steward, and exemplifies the nurse as the chief steward of patient care, and Chamberlain faculty and staff as the chief stewards of their student’s education. 2013 – 2015 2016 & Beyond Chamberlain establishes partnership with The DAISY Foundation (Disease Attacking the Immune System) LIFETIME LEARNING – CHAMBERLAIN ADDS FNP & DNP Chamberlain begins offering a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree program and establishes Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) Specialty Track Furthering our vision to transform healthcare by educating extraordinary healthcare professionals Today we are 21 campuses strong with a robust post-licensure online program offering OVER International Nursing Service Projects expand into the Global Health Education Program 31,000 STUDENTS 2017 – College of Health Professions established MASTER OF PUBLIC HEALTH (MPH) DEGREE PROGRAM EXTRAORDINARY FUTURE CHAMBERLAIN UNIVERSITY / Academic Catalog / 2018-2019 5 Extraordinary Resources The Chamberlain SIMCARE CENTER™ features high-tech training equipment, including high-fidelity human simulators, patient-monitoring equipment, a birthing simulator and physical assessment exam tables. From privacy curtain areas to scrub sinks to hospital beds, Chamberlain’s SIMCARE CENTER facilities closely replicate hospital and clinical settings. Utilizing the computer control center, our faculty have the ability to alter the simulated patient’s vitals and produce varying symptoms to evaluate a student’s response in real time. These labs provide a safe environment to practice skills and receive immediate feedback. Patient simulators react much like a live patient would – they have vital signs, voice discomfort and can blink, sweat or bleed. The high-tech simulators are controlled remotely by instructors, who can alter the mannequin’s physical and verbal responses. The labs provide a safe environment for students to advance their knowledge, hone their nursing skills and learn from their mistakes. As part of Chamberlain’s commitment to academic excellence, the SIMCARE CENTER is also supported by a resource center that helps with the development of complex skills, including: Learning Space™ is a real-time video patient monitoring and archiving of high-fidelity simulations for review during debriefing. Many of our students point to their time in the SIMCARE CENTER nursing skills laboratories as the first time they felt like a “real nurse.” In the lab, they are challenged to react in real-time to patient scenarios, including childbirth, seizures and cardiac arrest. They are empowered to take the lead in the care of their patient.

CHAMBERLAIN UNIVERSITY / Academic Catalog / 2018-2019 7 Extraordinary Experiences Venturing beyond the classroom and local community, Chamberlain students have the opportunity to participate in the Global Health Education Program in such areas as Brazil, Kenya, India, the Philippines, Haiti and the Dominican Republic. These immersion experiences give students the opportunity to practice their healthcare skills while gaining a deeper understanding of cultural and economic differences across the globe. Global Health Education Program experiences takes the place of the undergraduate baccalaureate students community health course, so the students can receive course credit as well as the educational experience of a lifetime. Chamberlain University and Ross University School of Medicine continue to participate in interprofessional Global Health Education Program experiences serving the people of Kenya and the Dominican Republic. This project holds special significance for the partnership it demonstrated between two healthcare professions. Chamberlain recognizes that the need for interdisciplinary collaboration is consistent with what our students will experience in the healthcare delivery environment and we are actively seeking opportunities to promote this ideal in our curriculum, coursework and student experiences.
