Nicole Turnbaugh - 11/27/2019
Degree: Respiratory Therapy
Graduation Year: 2019
"I should of went to community college. Waste of money. They do not prepare you enough to take the NBRC Board Exams. I had to spend extra money on books and education to pass. At first they care about you until Term 3. I was treated unfairly. Told that I would get extra Clinical time in the ICU and never happened. The teacher Beal got us kick out of Anchutz Hospital because he was never there. I was there but he wasn't. Concord should be inberased. Shane Pearson is an awful director. He would treat me different because I was sick. Awful communicator, he would never look me in the eye when I was talking to him. Never returned my emaile's which were important. Like why I was sick, my Aunty having a heart attack and eventually dieing from a Heart Attack. Save your money and time folks can and do NOT go to Concord Career College. Go to Front Range Community College they have a nice RT program there."

Disgusted - 11/29/2018
Degree: Respiratory Therapy
Graduation Year: 2019
"Concorde will cause you a heart attack. I have gotten so disgusted with this school. From the horrible instructors with little to no experience or expertise in teaching to the students as well. I left the community college and came here thinking it would be faster. Faster yes but way more trouble and money. I advise anyone considering this program dont cause its a big mess! Instructors have called us stupid and called students out there name. It is an abusive place totally. They do hound you for money too. Not a place if you are serious about learning. This place couldnt care less about your future just the dollar!"

"Please look into Community College first, At Collin, the program only cost 4K including bar exam fee and bar reviews plus job placement. Concorde is accredited by Ciara but not registered but Certified, hospitals don't hire CRT's anymore. I pass the examination here for CRT but I am so glad I look into community college and got accepted at my first try."

"This is the most unprofessional college I've ever seen. They allow certain students to get extra points while others who work hard can't catch a break. Then they lie about it!!! Students get caught cheating and nothing is done about it too. Thy staff are incompetent. Honestly it's not even the teachers either. It's the administration."

Sperrin - 8/17/2015
Degree: Respiratory Therapy
Graduation Year: 2002
"Like with all things in life you will get out of it what you put in. We started our program with 21 and graduated 5. This is college and it isn't easy. Most were lost with the first semester, the course work is hard. I had three young kids and managed a full time job, being a mom and graduated top of my class. It was difficult and the instructors helped me when I thought I couldn't go on. Because of their support I had a job before I graduated and have been well prepared for all positions I applied for. I even returned to finish my BS degree through the online program and will be done in a few weeks."

Former Student - 5/29/2015
Degree: Respiratory Therapy
Graduation Year: 2015
"I attended the Memphis, Tn Concorde College campus for Respiratory Therapy and just recently graduated. The instructors are amazing and you are fully prepared to start your career immediately after graduating. At times it was extremely challenging but with that comes the ability to graduate sooner than everyone else. I graduated and completed both board exams within a month. This is a great a school for Respiratory Therapy. All of my clinical sites say they prefer hiring Concorde grads because they receive the best training."
