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?

Financial aid at this school is the best. They will do anything and everything to help you cover costs. All you really have to do is work with them, submit your paperwork and they do the rest. If you're ever missing something they will immediately come find you to work things out. The money I pay for this school, however, I feel is not utilized well. The labs are not open to the students freely to practice skills, computer labs are not always open as well. There are a lot of things that need attention to make better for the students. The hidden tuition costs get ridiculous sometimes. Especially the student service fee every semester.

It's not the best school if you have a strict work schedule. Management isn't the best, mainly because the interests of the students are put last. Also, they change the schedule last minute. Financial aid is very willing to help in all ways to cover tuition, however, there are a lot of fees that are ridiculous. Resources, such as a library and computer lab isn't always available. I suggest you have a flexible work schedule and a lot of extra money and patience if you consider going to this school.
