4 College Junior

Student Body: 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.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: Class sizes are small, which allows for more one on one teaching when/if needed.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: 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.

3 College Senior

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

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: The overall academic is very good so far they are number one for taking there nclex and passing it on the first try

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: 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.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: 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.

2 College Junior

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

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: 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.

2 College Senior

Campus Resources: Americare does not really have much of a campus life. The only student interaction happening unless it is tutoring or in the classroom.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: 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.

5 College Senior

Student Body: 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.

5 College Senior

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

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: 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.

5 College Senior

Student Body: 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)

College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Starting New – I am currently trying to figure out the whole transferring of credits and they seem to be rather confused on this concept.

College Junior

Career Services: 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!

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Academic Flexibility – The school offers flexible time for full time and part time students. It helps the students to be able to graduate and have the degree even for part time students. It also offers tutorials for students.

I personally like this kind of set up because I can go to school and work. If I have difficulty in class, I will be able to ask for tutorials.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: Online Experience – The only online feature I've used thus far is enrollment into classes. Everything was fine.

1 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition process has been a hassel because in the Information Session I attended before choosing this college, details turned out to be false. very little is paid through government funding which leaves tens of thousands of dollars out of pocket for me.

Academic Flexibility: Length of Program – The beauty of this program is how fast you will complete it. It's a 10 month program that isn't offered anywhere else in my area. The downfall however is the out of pocket costs and the fact that other colleges in my area will not allow me to transfer some credits.

2 College Senior

Online Courses: Registration Process – i think its great that they have online registration. however during the registration process, you have to go to different (up to 3 or more) meetings. this make the process very tiring and stress full. i think one orientation is enough. and thanks to the power of internet most questions can be answered online. maybe by chatting with a representative, of by emailing your questions, or by having an orientation video that new students could watch. A frequently asked question tab wouldn't hurt.

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: the education i am getting is worth the money. the financial aid lifts a huge burden off you. its a big relief that the school offers financial aid. however, i think there are some fees that they can do away with. for example the transcript evaluation fee, also the LPN application fee could be reduced to may be 1/3 of its current price.

3 College Senior

Career Services: No Career Center – i am assuming its because its a private school there is little or no concern about helping students after graduation. Also, i don't think there is any alumni network. Hopefully someone would open there eyes to that need.
