Ameritech is best known for its accelerated nursing program. Widely recognized as selective, rigorous, and innovative, the program has grown to be one of the largest and highest-ranking nursing programs in Utah.
Past graduates have come to Ameritech from across the United States and even internationally. With the expansion into online education in 2009, we now offer an accelerated advanced degree option for registered nurses who wish to pursue their Bachelor of Science in nursing.
We implemented our mission guided by five dynamic and integrated core values that are embedded into the institution. They dictate our behavior and are reflected in our work. We refer to these as our Five Star Values.
We foster a culture of integrity where institutional principles of open communication, ethical decision-making, and humility are encouraged, expected, and demonstrated consistently. Not only is doing the right thing simply how we do business, but our actions reveal our commitment to truth telling and respecting the moral wholeness of every person without conditions or limitations.
We create a culture of excellence by committing to continuous growth, improvement, and lifelong learning. We believe in a culture where transformation is embraced, and the status quo and mediocrity are not tolerated.
We promote a culture that puts students’ interests first, acknowledging the student voice as central to the learning experience. We affirm and respect the uniqueness of and differences among persons, ideas, values, and ethnicities.
We support a culture of caring, demonstrated by an ability to understand the needs of others and a commitment to always acting in the best interests of all stakeholders. This culture of caring considers the whole person, embraces acceptance, embodies respect, and offers inclusivity.
We advocate a culture of service by seeking to improve the lives of those with whom we interact, and strive to contribute to the welfare of others. In service to others, we celebrate the richness of each individual, promote health, support healing, and offer hope.
