Concorde Career Colleges Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (58)
Signed up and at the time was told I could sit for CODA and DANBE certification. Which found out later is untrue. The classes never had any instruments needed to complete course work, X-Ray machine rarely worked, books out of date, and some days the school had no water. Instructors were not certified to teach, they were just random people who worked in a Dental Office, the instructors would come and go as they pleased, high turn over, there is no Dental Assisting Director. This school does not put your education first. As a matter of fact it is put on the back burner. They would rather make money then actually educate you. Many dental offices in the area will not hire from this school. Spent way more money than I found out I needed to spend. Please do your research before signing up for this school. Horrible and questionable recruiting practices.
Currently enrolled, on my second term, if I had the opportunity to do it over, I would not enroll here. This school is extremely unorganized, grossly overpriced w regards to quality education in comparison to others. Incompetent instructors, who are overextended on courses they are asked to instruct, largely due to high instructor turnover rate causing short staffing, is a big part of why this place is such a mess.
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.
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.
Tuition cost way to much,everything is rushed,you really don't gain any skills to where you feel confident to get a job or go on an interview ,they only care care about making the school a 5.0 they force you to take internships that are not close by where you live,they care all the way up until they get that loan money, Go to a technical college its way cheaper and you will save money and learn more I'm disappointed at how greedy this school is for money.teachers are passing you have so they look good instead of really trying to help you.
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.
My college is an accredited school that gradually helps you earn your credentials. There is also external support provided within the campus. Attending this college motivates me to want to further my education and experience higher entry levels. I would most likely recommend my college to anyone seeking to further their education.
They lied from beginning to end. When I first registered I specifically asked if they were an accredited school. Comes to find out, the DANB does not recognize them. Therefore, all my hard work was for nothing. It has been next to impossible to find a job as an assistant because of this. Not to mention, the other students are the ones that are showing you how to do things, not the teachers.
I am a current student. My first term was amazing! My second term has been a nightmare. They started a new curriculum for new students so they're doing a teach out with my term. The provided us with an incompetent instructor, and she screwed is over. So far, no major steps have been taken to fix the issue, and we may be stuck with her for two more terms. This isn't right or fair. We're paying lots of money for this education that isn't fairly being offered to us!
I attended Concorde in 2015 and it was the best decision I ever made. At first I was skeptical and worried reading all of the negative reviews online but I decided to give it a shot. I got great grades and did my externship at one of the best hospitals. They offered me a position which I turned down, I turned down many positions until I found the one that was just right for me. Finding employment was not a problem. I now work in an amazing hospital and make good money while I am in school again to become an RN. I would definitely recommend this program.
