I am a current student at Ambria College of Nursing in the RN program. I have nothing but positive things to say about Ambria. Many years ago I obtained my CNA and after 15 years I obtained my LPN at a local community college. I have been an LPN for 7 years and found that there were to many gen eds I had to take, and retake along with taking the TEASE Test to go back to school at my local community college to obtain my RN. I did not have time to waste, so as nursing in Illinois is changing, I found Ambria the best choice for me. I did not have to take the TEASE Test, all my gen eds transferred and I didn't have to repeat classes. I have GREAT Teachers at Ambria, the staff has always been there when I had questions. Nursing School is what a person makes it. If you want a positive experience you have to be positive. Again, Ambria is a GREAT Nursing School and the staff along with the dedicated students make it a GREAT place to learn and reach your dreams of becoming an RN!!!!

I'm currently in the RN program (completed the LPN program), after trying to get into a community college program (not because of low grades but because of time) I got frustrated and looked into private school options. This HONESTLY was the right fit for me. I read the negative reviews and felt I needed to put out my positive experience. People really need to understand Ambria isn't your community college it hasn't had policies and programs established by the state- This school actually cares what kind of students and NURSES they produce and send into the world. While working as an LPN I've come across so many people that should have never graduated ... But I'm a great NURSE because of this program at THIS school. A lot of people say "they don't care" just want to make money... Well then why did so many people hold my hand and really guide me through the process... NOT only that but they open up so many realms to succeed if you actually make use of them. Some may feel they are strict but wouldn't you want your nurse if your sick to come from a tough school?

I don't agree with some of the decisions they have made about their curriculum . I believe they could do a better job to provide a better education.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
I was offered a grant worth $3,800 and the school only accepted $2,000 which was upsetting. The process of applying was easy.

I chose this school because they are very flexiable with my other scheduals and the people who work there were very helpful and nice, especially the people in the financial aide department!

I would say that the student body at my school is very diverse with many different ethnicities of both males and females.

My overall experience at Ambria has been great. I love the fact that classes are small and everyone seems to know everyone. Transferring my credits was relatively easy.
College Senior 2012-11-06T21:42:08Z
There are many available resources at Ambria. What I like most is that I am able to speak with someone all the time to help answer any questions I have. Everyone I've met have been very pleasant and informative.
College Senior 2012-11-06T21:39:46Z
The ethnic diversity is very broad at Ambria. There are people that come from many different backgrounds. Students seem to be more driven and are determined to change their current situation.
College Senior 2012-11-06T21:35:30Z
Class sizes are small, which allows for more one on one teaching when/if needed.
College Senior 2012-11-06T21:32:38Z
The school provides great access to a computer when/if needed. I have never experienced any issues with not having immediate access to a computer. The school network is reliable/fast, I have never had any problems.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
the financial aid department is excellent in helping you apply for financial aid. The school is expensive sometimes i think too expensive to where you can't slow down your working habits. I guess the price is expected because it is a private college

The overall academic is very good so far they are number one for taking there nclex and passing it on the first try
Recent Alumnus 2012-09-19T16:27:25Z
they offer alot of resources for there for the students like a computer room tutors and etc but some students like to go to the teacher for help instead of always pushing them to a tutor. The teachers should go over the materials in the book more instead of teaching their own things that they know about the book that intend to confuse a student because everything that they're tested on is out the book.

There are many computers for the students to use. There is also a study room. The study room at times can be loud which makes it hard to study.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
This school is very expensive. I am not able to get financial aid and loans are not available.

Not Many Facilities – Ambria is a newer school so it has access to plenty of computers and printers. it does not however have a library but does offer a tutoring room and many study rooms similar to rooms that you can find at a local library.

Americare does not really have much of a campus life. The only student interaction happening unless it is tutoring or in the classroom.
Recent Alumnus 2012-08-21T04:47:47Z
Extremely Flexible – The reason why i choose this school is because of the fast paced programs they have to offer. I was able to transfer all of my previous credits from previous schools which in return is helping me reach my goals faster.

Diversity With a Smile – Americare has an extremely diverse enviroment with not just the student body but the proffessors and the administration. Walking into the school regardless of who you are you will always be received with a smile from everyone in the building.

Brand New Building – The building is only a few years old, so everything is new. There is a virtual library that is also available.

Programs Excellent – I am in the LPN program at Ambria. Each class and every step needed to get my Degree is mapped out for me, with no surprises.

When you walk into the school you see students that are very serious about their career. There are special events, prizes, and parties during holidays. Every member of the staff is there and willing to help you with the smallest details of your career at Ambria College of Nursing(Americare)

Starting New – I am currently trying to figure out the whole transferring of credits and they seem to be rather confused on this concept.
Recent Alumnus 2012-05-08T03:14:48Z
Starting Now – I am starting the school now and so far, they have been very easy to work with, answering all my questions and trying very hard to help me!
Sorry, there are no reviews.
