Hi, I am a CNA wanting to become a RN, and have a friend who recommended Concorde Career Institute. Before I became a CNA I ALMOST started school at Concorde when I realized I DID NOT wanna be in debt for years.
ALSO, I became very wary when I was looking up license on the Florida License Verification website, and hers was not on there. She took the LPN program at Concorde, she took her NCLEX and passed, but for some reason she is not on the website nor is her sister whom also attended Concorde and passed the NCLEX.
Whats going on with this? Does anyone have an explanation?
I since have decided I want to go to community college, so I'm not trying to go to any private college, but I am just curious, should I warn my friends who want to attend these colleges, or is paperwork from the college enough for employers? I just know that when I got my current job, they definitely looked my license up.

I could be wrong but I don't think your friend is an LPN. You should be able to pull up any license on the DOH website. You can also search for accredited nursing schools on there.

They are listed as an approved school on the BON school directory, however they pass and retention rates are not very good, it's possible your friend did not pass and didn't want to tell anyone. Knowing that Florida pays miserably low stick to public colleges for less debt.
