    Take it as someone who went to Ambria (formerly Americare) for their RN. Luckily I am now pursuing my RN elsewhere, but I had to start all the way from the bottom. Here is the problem with Ambria.

    They are NOT accredited by HLC, which means they are not regionally accredited. NO WHERE will they take your credits. Trust me, I looked far and wide and every single college I applied at told me NO, they will not. Aurora does accept the nursing courses from Ambria on "a conditional basis" as I was told by the admissions counselor there for the RN-BSN program, and St. Francis said the same thing, but that's all.

    I would say: go to Ambria if you are absolutely at your last resort and if you absolutely cannot get into any other nursing programs. I suppose it's fine if you don't ever plan on furthering your education past an ADN. I know they did recently become approved for a BSN, so if that's the highest you plan to go than no, it's not the worst thing in the world. But for those of us who perhaps would like to eventually pursue a graduate degree, DONT do it, you will have to start literally from scratch. Not worth it.
