"I'm surprised that Concorde College is still allowed to be opened in Colorado. Their LPN program does not prepare you to pass the State NCLEX Exam, but their focus is on their in-house HESI Exit Exam. After 9 months and not been trained to pass their Exit HESI Exam , the school would not allow me to sit my State Exam. Due to space limitations, I cannot expand. Concorde should lose it's State Licensure."

"This school is ALL about the money. They are too cheap to have a building in which the air conditioning works all year round (while having two classes at once: we were shuffled around to three hotels, a near by college, a clinical site, and to sit in 100 degree rooms). There is a "lab" in which we spent a total of 5 hours in at the VERY beginning of the program and had to pretend (example: learning to put in a foley catheter, we used a G-tube).Instructors are condescending; very few actually care about the students and their success.My current struggle: I am in the 4th term out of 5, took a final exam today and did not pass by 3 points. This was due to concentrating on the other class I was also taking because of the horror stories from previous classes. I have an A in the other class with a final on Friday (it is Tuesday) and I am not being allowed to take the final. So I have wasted a month and a half and about $250 on gas because my clinical site is an hour and a half away (in which I never missed a day, was never late, and was the only student to turn in my care plan on the scheduled date) I have to return in 2 months to take both classes over again, which means more money to Concorde and more money out of my pocket to pay for gas to get to clinical sites that I've already been to and done. Not to mention, I'm 6 months pregnant and will be 8 then.If that does not make up your mind...Concorde has contracts with clinical sites, Concorde does not care where you live compared to where the clinical sites are located, and the sites in which I have been to are places in which all CNAs run and hide to make the student nurses do all of their work (changing briefs, putting people on and taking people off toilets, feeding, taking vitals. NOT THINGS NURSES DO ALL DAY LONG)I hope this helps and that if you do chose Concorde, I hope your experience is better than the one I had."
