Complaint / review text:
This school is the worse school you can go to. The staff doesn't even care about your education. They will push you through just until you get to the end and you don't know enough to pass the predictor or the nclex. Now let's talk about this predictor, it's an ati test that is suppose to tell you how are going to do on the nclex. Well here at Concorde to pass you need a 63 which is equivalent to getting a 73 on the nclex and guess what, that's failing!
The curriculum at Concorde is not properly planned out. I can't tell you how many times we had multiple exams in one day some of which were 10 chapters. It's nearly impossible to overcome. We also have some instructors who because they have a higher level of education they feel like you should already know all of it and can talk to you anyway they want.
A unprofessional instructor should not be teaching professionalism. When an instructor is approaching the campus president and director of nursing because her entire class is failing because they are lacking the skills that they were suppose to get in another class and they say "well the students are not my first priority, making money is." What does that say about this school as a whole?
We have approached every problem we have had since the start of the program and nothing has happen. Now it's 6 terms later and half the class can't graduate. Now they are looking for answers. We have no clinical site besides nursing homes because we keep losing the hospitals because of our reputation and it's horrible.
Concorde is a self teach college. We learned drugs and injections off of a YouTube video "like really look at like this." If you were a patient in the hospital would you want someone sticking you with a needle who learned off a video and has never done it on someone or even been able to practice on a fake arm or etc like promised when you first enter the Concorde tour?
When you come to the Concorde tour they make it seem so perfect. Well you ever hear if it sounds too good to be true it usually is? Well that's what it's like being enrolled at Concorde. Please people read this and take my advice: do not come here. It's a horrible school. Don't waste your time and money. Sounds good to finish in 15 months but go to a good college like FSCJ and get your education the right way. Don't ruin your life. I promise you it will be hell. There is so much more to say about this school but just from what was said above I honestly don't think i need to discuss anything else!!
