If you are reading this before you go to that school than you have doubts period. these are what called fast food schools and the claim is the faster the better. I graduated in '06 yes i did get a job at a hospital working as a clerk only but when i asked my employer that i wanted to work of my diploma coding and billing she told me i have to take the state boad for that meaning i had to go back to school to work in that field i was making 10.50 but the coders start off pay was 18hr this is sad my program of study was 9mon. but the community college program was only 3 more months plus they make you take the state board test. so the best thing i can tell you is if you never went to school meaning colleg stay away from fast food schools there no good for unless you are already in a company or you know someone that know someone go to a community college they will work with you even if you think you the dumbes person in the world and one more thing you cant transfer credits from this school colleges dont know them if your trying to further your career

CONCORDE SCAM
Paulr n.
I just graduated from Jacksonville FL Concorde institute nursing program. The school is a joke. The instructors are unqualified. All they do is read power-points in the class and thats it. Clinicals are in nursing homes and 80% of clinicals is CNA work. Why pay $27000 to $39000 to learn to be a CNAs or Dietary Aides. The graduation rate is less than 50%. They will kick you out for any reason after having taken your money. They do not care. They are in the business of sucking as much money as they can from ignorant students. They try to expel as many students as possible before graduation, in an attempt to keep the NCLEX pass rates high, by graduating a few and only the best students. This is a school whose interest is simply to pull in the maximum cash for the least effort. Their victims can go to hell as long as they make more money.
The teaching staff turnover is also very high--a revolving door. The management is disorganized, disinterested and inept.
There is also a whiff of racialism here. The school will hardly ever accommodate the minority students for any circumstance, yet they seem willing to bend the rules for the white students.
Finally there is a huge financial aid scam going on here. Most students are forced to sign paperwork that they receive room and board from the school and the school turns around and collects this money from the government for services that have never been rendered. This is as high as $6000 or more per student multiplied by 100s of students!! In my opinion this is highly irregular and a fraud against the government and the students.
Most of their graduates do not find jobs

Do not be another fool. Find a real school.
