This is Derek Miller, Speaking on Business. The mission of Ameritech College of Healthcare is to prepare students to serve as competent professionals, advance their careers, and pursue lifelong learning. Here to tell us more is Ameritech president, Sherry Jones.


At Ameritech, our success stems from excellence in education, hands-on experiential learning through innovative clinical opportunities and our state-of-the-industry simulation center, medical reserve corps, apprenticeship programs, and our flexible degree pathways.

Our students and faculty were recently honored by the Salt Lake County Health Department for giving more than 10,000 hours of community service by assisting with COVID testing sites. Our nursing faculty is made up of highly experienced and specialized working medical professionals. Faculty member Jill Dubbelman worked with the Salt Lake County Medical Reserve Corps to create a volunteer program where nursing students were able to assist with COVID testing, tracing and now vaccinations.

Our students have been hired on at nearly every hospital in Salt Lake County, the Salt Lake County Health Department, and many other healthcare facilities within the state. With NCLEX pass rates consistently above state and national averages, we are committed to helping our students succeed.


With graduates fulfilling nearly every type of role within nursing and occupational therapy, Ameritech has thousands of graduates who are working in nearly every hospital and clinic across Utah. Learn more at*. I’m Derek Miller with the Salt Lake Chamber, and this is Speaking on Business.
