"The school was founded in September 1983, as a branch of the Kansas City College of Medical and Dental Careers, Kansas City, Missouri. In 1986, the school became a free standing, accredited institution offering courses in allied health. In May 1989, the school changed its name to Concorde Career Institute. On February 25, 1991, the school moved to its present, larger facility in order to offer a more centralized location for the geographic area served. The school was approved to offer some of its programs at the associate degree level in November 1995. In May 2005 the name was changed to Concorde Career College. Concorde prepares committed students for successful employment in a rewarding healthcare profession."
I had a really good experience at Concorde. It changed my life a lot, I didn’t start at concorde first. I went to MCC just across the street from the campus and I honestly feel like it was a mistake to go there, feels like I wasted time and I did. I was going for the same career Medical Assistant and I was there for three years, not even learning the things I needed to become an MA. I loved that starting here I was learning and doing hands on. Which for me I learn best and I’m just glad where it has me now, I just finished externship and got offered a full time job where I’m at which is great. I just need to do the boards test and then graduation I finally feel like I am doing something in life.Stephanie Gonzalez
Hello, mine is not really a review/comment but more of a question (in which I will contact the college directly and ask) but I feel like if I post the question here, I would get more of an open objective answer and opinion, as calling the College, they could give me the perfect answer that I want to hear 🙂 How good/bad is the nursing program for adult learners? Does anyone have any experience of being in their 40's and going back to school? How difficult/easy/friendly and helpful was the school? Any honest answers will be greatly appreciated.

Concorde is a really great place, I would recommend anyone looking to start a career in dental, to start with Concorde. The instructors and coordinators are amazing people and they’ll make sure your experience is everything!Tia

With a national network and a robust online program, the college offers convenient courses to civilians and military learners. Students in Kansas City take a mix of in-seat and online classes. Columbia College has articulation agreements with Metropolitan Community College and Johnson County Community College."
Not impressed by this school, classes are still online when they really need to be in session especially to practice skills. Had non-stop issues. If the nurses don’t want to teach then you need to move along. Need instructors who care and want you to succeed and help you to improve. Teaching yourself is extremely difficult and not what I pay for, I pay for a service. The instructors don’t follow the schools values and missions. Disappointed to say the least. One of the worst customer service interactions. I was given a code from my school to purchase some materials. The code ‘malfunctioned’ according to APEA since the price was lower than what they charge normally. According to them and my school it was my fault the code I was given gave me a bigger discount. I politely responded stating as a business owner I would never track down a customer and harass/threaten them that unless I received the full price I will cancel their order. But my school stated it was my fault thus I have no choice to but pay whatever price or I will fail my class. As a disabled veteran I am deeply hurt of the result of this company and my school.Kimberly Stanfield
University of Kansas Medical Center (affectionately called “KU”) is the region’s major health care institution. It is a very busy hospital providing comprehensive and highly-specialized services. They are a go-to institution for complex medical needs including cancer and stem cell transplant. We predict that KU would continue to grow and gain stature nationally. By the way, there are some beautiful glass art displays in the hallways! Also, the cell phone connection is consistently poor inside the buildings and should addressed .Rakesh Goyal
I was recently a patient here and on the 6th floor in the med unit the nurses were so amazing they were very efficient and caring. The doctor "Doctor Brown" was so awesome he really knew his job and how to treat me ive never had a doctor ive felt so comfortable around I personally have mental illness and I dont feel comfortable in alot of situations I would recommend dr brown to anyone hes amaing at his job. Great job ku at putting your patient first. If I could give this hospital 10 i would.KRYSTAL YOUNG
