An absolutely terrible experience. I was told by the advisor that there were no prereq classes needed for the class I wanted. That was so WRONG. It was way too advanced to even consider being able to get through without some prereqs.

Dropping the class was SO DIFFICULT... I had to contact them several times, in several manners, and several different advisors to finally get a response.

I sent the books back and USPS tracking said it was delivered, and I never heard back so I assumed it was fine.

Fast forward 8 I'm getting bills in the mail again for those books! The book store is saying they never got them! I have contacted the everyone and the Boise location (who has not responded and likely will not!). Apparently they plan on making me pay $245 for the books that I sent back, paid $30 to send back, didn't damage, and didn't even end up using because the student advisor LIED about the course not needing prereq courses.
I've only finished my first semester at Carrington but so far the teachers there are great and really care about the students success.
I am super eager to start with carrington to get me to my final step to begin a career!! The Dental hygiene school seems very efficent and successful throughout and after the program.

I have just enrolled in school and have found staff to be easy to work with and willing to answer all of the questions I have.
All staff members have been super helpful and supportive. I love the classroom energy. There is a lot to learn in such a short time and I feel my instructor does an amazing job at fitting as much as humanly possible into the course.
If you are passionate about pursuing a career in healthcare, there are far better options than Carrington. This for-profit school cares for nothing but that; profit. Most of the staff are toxic and grossly unqualified. The fact that the LPN program is even ACEN accredited is shocking when half the staff anti-vaxxers who sit around gossiping like high schoolers. Their behavior is embarrassingly bad and discriminatory; I have video/audio recordings to prove it. This school's RN program continuously fails to qualify for accreditation. Do not waste your money or time here. CWI has an 18 month LPN program that is respectable and 100x better at a small fraction of the cost of Carrington. There are better routes to your license/degree through accredited, reputable schools. This school is easily the worst mistake you can make educationally and financially. It's a total joke
Carrington is a fast paced school with very talented instructors. The workload at first is very overwhelming but once you get the hang of it, it gets easier. The help of the other students and the encouragement of your instructors is definitely a huge boost to help you succeed. I would recommend this school if you are ready for a challenge and ready to start your career.
Very welcoming kind employees! I enjoy going to school every day! My advisor is very helpful! All supplies to graduate are available at this college!
I went to this school and it’s THE worst of the worst. The staff, the program, the classes. Honestly they just want your money & won’t speak to you unless you’ve paid. Terrible communication and unwilling to respond to questions.
The teachers made me cry literally almost everyday. They are critical, mean, and pushy. They won’t assist you in clinic and will sit in the middle of the room and gossip the whole time. It’s an aweful environment if you’re falling behind even slightly a little.
Concerning finances, It’s taken me over 3 months to get a hold of somebody. They also charged me for semesters I didn’t attend. Hardly ANY of my credits transferred and I already had a previous degree.
They don’t tell you this, but you have to have a 75 or higher in your classes and won’t tell you until you’ve signed papers. And then once you’re a senior you have to get a 90 to pass.
If you’re considering coming to the school, I would NOT recommend it. Find somewhere else
I am just getting starting in a program that Carrington offers. So far I have been pleased with them as they have helped me obtain the information I need to get started in this field. The only thing at this time I would have liked to be different is that I would like to have been given more advice on financial aid and scholarships information. I will not know if I am accepted into their program until the end of July and school starts on August 27th this year. This makes it very hard to make financial arrangements and prepare accordingly for the program. I hope that later this year if accepted into their program I will get to experience more of their overall performance.
If your looking for a school that cares about you and your successes this is the right school for you! They have endless options to help you in many ways! Everyone is friendly and always willing to help! I really enjoy this school And how much they have helped me!
Want to go to a school where you feel like people care? want to go to a school where teachers are there to teach you and not just to be paid? then Carrington College is a place they want to help you they are truly amazing and I would recommend this college to anyone.
I think this is the best nursing school in the area.
Their computers and printers don't work, and they don't explain online services that could have been used
Excellent facility. State of the art equipment, and they give you every tool you need in order to be as successful as you can possibly be.
they have both morning and evening classes available.
I really loved the school. my teachers where the best.
