AUHS is relatively a new nursing school. From what I experienced so far, the school was somewhat unorganized. However, as the weeks went by, it got better. Every school have good and bad sides and I would say that AUHS has a lot of good sides. AUHS is a small private school. You will be with your group throughout the program. They will be your family for the next 3 years (age difference doesn't matter). The advantage there is that you and your group can help each other to survive each quarter! The feeling of being the new student won't matter to you once you start. The professors are great. They really want you to learn and pass the class so they encourage students to communicate with them. Classes may be overwhelming since it's an accelerated nursing program, but the professors are there for you and there are tutoring as well. You can do anything as long as you are dedicated to your studies. AUHS is a private Christian school, but students here are mix. The school does not discriminate other race and religion so that's a good thing. AUHS is a private school so it's expensive. Tuition ranges between 80,000 to 94,000. Students apply for the sub/unsub government loans and parents apply for the PLUS loan. If the government loans don't cover your expenses, you can always apply for a private loan. Education is a great investment so by the time you graduate as a BSN, you will be earning a lot more once you start working.

If you really want to be successful in life you would do everything for it. So for me, I don't care how much money I am going to spend for school. It's education. So expect that you will be spending. And education will be yours forever. No one could get that from you. That's your success!. Don't think about the money. Think about what you are going to be after 3.5 years. For me, everything will be worth it. I am just being practical too. AUHS doesn't have waiting list. So, you could finish your program a lot faster. I don't want to go to City Colleges and wait. It will just waste my time. At AUHS, time will not be wasted. Think about going to City Colleges, how many years are you going to wait? Instead of waiting you should have just enrolled at AUHS and get done with everything. Then you will work and will be able to pay off for your loans. I am so happy and contented at AUHS. I don't have any regrets going here. Everyone is very approachable and helpful. They really want you to be successful. As a whole, it is still up to you want you to be in the future. If you do well then you will get what you want. So if you decide to go to AUHS, expect that you will be busy spending your 3.5 years studying.
