When I was searching for a nursing school, Ameritech seemed like the best option, as the accelerated program would get me working as a nurse to support my family in the shortest amount of time possible. Now that I’m a couple semesters into the program, I have to say that I am very happy with my decision. I’ll be a nurse very quickly, and the education that I’m receiving is excellent. My instructors have been approachable, caring, and invested in my success. I would do it all over again in a hurry!
Ameritech gave me a solid foundation for my nursing career. The staff were great. They were friendly, personable, and cared about our success as students. I appreciated the smaller class sizes that were conducive to focusing on our individual needs. I felt well prepared for the NCLEX and had no troubles passing it on the first attempt.

I have wanted to be a nurse for a long time because I truly feel like I was put on this earth to take care of people. I loved going to Ameritech- it was hard, but so worth it and I felt so well-prepared for the NCLEX. I also met some of my closest friends in nursing school. Now, I have a job at St. Mark’s Hospital and love it! I’m grateful for Ameritech’s nursing program, as the knowledge and understanding that I gained in school made my transition onto the hospital floor so much easier.
