I decided to attend Chamberlain College of Nursing (CCN) because of its excellent structure of Master 's Degree Nursing program. The proof lies in the availability of variety classes which I believe would undoubtedly prepare me for my advanced practice in nursing, for example, the course of Nursing Informatics which I did not find in any other reviewed online curriculum.
