Compassionate Care

Is My Ambrosian Value

Marceline is committed to serving, and we are, too. Our nursing program taught her to provide a higher level of care, and the spark to go a step beyond. We provide a holistic education that empowers you to achieve your goals, so you can support patients in achieving their goals, too. Personal care and compassion. It's what we, and Marceline, provide in health care.

Is My Ambrosian Value

Months before she graduated summa cum laude from one of the most highly recognized Forensic Psychology programs in the Midwest, Sarah Wurster knew where she was headed next. She had been admitted to a highly competitive mental health counseling master’s program at Valparaiso University. “My experiences at SAU were absolutely indispensable in gaining admittance,” she says. “I credit the amazing psychology professors I had at St. Ambrose.”
