The College of Health Care Professions Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (37)
*BEWARE* If you are interested in a school that will lie to your face, cheat you out of a good education, and steal your money, the CHCP Austin campus is the school for you! We have had to endure four teachers within a six month period, none of which have taught us. The accepted method of "teaching" is reading through slides and sections of the chapters word for word, mispronouncing words (both basic English and medial terminology) left & right, not going over the assigned homework so that you know what is incorrect and how to find the correct answer, no direction, assigning workbook/computer assignments without even going over the corresponding chapter, etc., etc., I go could on and on... On three separate occasions the books we needed were on back order, one book we did not receive until the 4th week of the MOD. Each MOD is 5 weeks, so we did not learn anything that we were supposed to be taught for that subject. We did not receive our coding books until a week after the MOD began, but we were given homework assignments with no book to use. We have taught ourselves what will be asked of us upon entering the field. God willing, we have taught ourselves correctly. We have spoken to the Director of Education and the Campus President on numerous occasions regarding the issues but nothing has changed nor does it appear that they are concerned. The classroom has a damaged dry erase board that can not be used at all, the chairs are extremely uncomfortable, the tables in the lunch room have fallen on several occasions but they have money to purchase new signs to put throughout the halls so that they can present themselves in a better way while giving prospective students a tour of the campus. The majority of what we were told from the advisors has been false! The solution that was presented to us is that they would give us an Assessment Test to determine what areas we are lacking in and then add those into the review classes during our externship period which is every Friday for 5 weeks, so a total of 5 days to provide us with the education that was promised to us and should have been received during the correct previous MOD's as well as preparing us for our certification exams. We have taken the Assessment Tests (we were told that it would be one customized test but it ended up being 3 tests which took us 2 days, a total of 12 hours to not even fully finish) 3 weeks ago and we still have not received the results back. Our review class is due to start in 2 weeks. There is only 5 tests! This has been an extremely stressful situation that has caused us to lose our faith, drive, and thousands of dollars! Please take my advice and look into other schools before choosing CHCP. No one deserves what we have to experience!
If possible, there wouldn't be any stars selected. Unfortunately I did not do my research on this school prior to signing the $17k contract. Needless to say, I've regretted it ever since. It's even more unfortunate that I'm still currently enrolled in the MCB/HIT program. I've been through 4 teachers thus far (due to them resigning), I'm due to begin externship within these next few weeks; I'm nowhere near prepared for an extern assignment. Most mods are a repeat of the previous mod, there's very little "coding" going on within the classroom. My first teacher yelled at me just before locking me in a classroom because I wouldn't take a quiz home to complete outside of class. The second teacher sent us to lunch, then turned in her keys without notice, we returned to find a random teacher sitting in our classroom. It's unclear why that teacher left, but she left without grading any of our assignments so we were given "completion grades"; no one is clear on what our grades would have actually been. Needless to say, we do not know what we need to focus our studying on. The 3rd instructor was awesome; however, I believe the school gave very little incentive to retain her. As we reviewed the syllabus with the 3rd instructor she was shocked that we were so far behind given the amount of time we've been in school. Complaining to "directors" is like talking to a brick wall. Oh, they listen & take notes...everyone I've complained to has taken notes but nothing has been done to rectify the lack of proper training, sacrifices, wasted time & money shelled out to this school. Every complaint is followed up with the promise that things will get better, as of yet, NOTHING has been resolved. An "assessment" was given 2 weeks ago to gauge our knowledge-there are 5 people in our class-yet the school is still trying to gather our results? Long story short, they're waiting on us to either dropout or graduate so the problem will go away. I can't remember the last time we've been offered the opportunity to give an end of mod review; so here's my review, CHCP! I've complained to both the Director of Education AND the Campus President-even the corporate office; as of yet there has been no progress and definitely no follow up. Do not waste your time or money at this school! I hope this helps those interested in enrolling, do yourself a favor and keep looking...this isn't the place for a serious student.
As a whole the campus was dysfunctional. A representative enrolled my friend and I with a fake diploma. The information given was a lie the only thing that was correct was the money I still have to pay as of today. Please don't waste you time or money here. PIMA is a better choice period.
I am currently a Junior LMRT degree student at CHCP~ Fort Worth, and am actively pursuing a second career, as I am an "older' student. I had the traditional College experience while earning my first degree, however, with dedicated support staff, small class sizes and the highly personalized instruction offered at CHCP, I have found this "second time" to be a wonderfully fulfilling experience. The level of sharing and caring on this Campus has proven to be most beneficial to my over all learning and educational experience! I have to truly say that CHCP~ (Fort Worth) has MANY highly qualified, skilled and caring instructors. I am excited and very much looking forward to this new chapter in my life. With the quality of learning available, adding to the level of my education; combined with the technical skills I am continually gaining....I can clearly see a wonderful career ahead of me. CHCP~ Fort Worth is THE place to get a great start, or( in my case) start again!
The College of Health Care Professions is a great school. My time there was great the administration does a great job at listening to what is going on at the school and the program is awesome. The teachers are very knowledgeable in the subjects that they teach and most take the time to make sure you understand and comprehend what the subject is about. I would go back.
Love the school. Instructors were awesome. Career services is the best! (Mrs. C). Glad I attended teh school. I would recommend this school to anyone.
I graduated this past summer from this school, and I couldn't be more happier. I found a job instantly after my externship finished. I now work at an OB/GYN, my dream job! I love my job. Without the help from my instructors and externship coordinator, I wouldn't have my dream job. Thanks for everything.
This place is a joke. I wish I had read these reviews before I found out the hard way. I am a Veteran. I am fully independent and I had already done my Fasfa through Rosa and Nancy. Everything went smoothly (so I thought). I got a phone call 3 hours before my first day of night classes with them saying that none of my information went through, that I am considered a dependent student and that they need my parents information. Not happening. I go forth to call the Fasfa 1-800 number to get this resolved and their story is completely different than what Nancy is telling me. Come to find out, N. did not turn in the paperwork needed to prove that I am an independent student. But instead of admitting Her wrongs, she persisted to yell and scream at me (let me remind you, this is financial aid at CHCP) saying that I was very wrong. She then decides to tell me that the only way I can attend school is if I oag $936/month WHILE I AM IN SCHOOL or I will not be able to attend. Nancy has changed her story multiple times and told me that it's not her problem when I expressed my concerns to her about my future. If you do not have $20000 cash ready to hand out, do not come to this school. I think it's funny that they talk about professionalism and customer service and this school lacks in those categories very much. Now the campus president (Gerald) doesn't seem too bad. He seems like he's on my side about this, but instead of admitting that they messed up, he's trying to make it seem like he's going above and beyond to handle this. Which shouldn't be the case. I really do not recommend this school at all unless you have $20000 to give these people. It's a money game.
Campus was ok, teachers were great but financially it was stressful.
Since I'm still in school I have a great a experience the teachers are really helpful and they care about your future. Also you make friendships along the way. Most IMPORTANT thing when you come to this school is how much you as a student put into it remember is your future.
