This school does not care about their students. After spending a ton of money and completing certification with their provided credentials for billing and coding, one year later I still have no job….! They told me I could start applying while I was in school, which I did, yet I am still unemployed in my field of study. It is very frustrating that it seems NHA and Carrington are not desired credentials for the medical billing workforce.
I love going to school at Carrington College because it has smaller class sizes which allows for more help one on one with learning concepts. I am in the medical billing and coding program which was a good choice for me. The instructor definitely does a good job of teaching the core guidelines that must be followed when coding from ICD-10 cm and CPT books. The instructor also teaches you about the billing and reimbursement process in a medical office. Everyone on the campus is kind and welcoming.
This school has been great so far! The communication is amazing and everyone is so helpful. I would highly recommend this school to anyone and any program. The instructors have been helpful and open to any questions and the Dean is an open book. She is open, honest, really cares, and makes us a priority. She is not too busy to speak with us.
Carrington College has wonderful teachers but I wouldn’t recommend. The total price for a 9 month program costs as much as 1 semester in a 4 year college. They will bother you for money when they know it’s coming it takes time.
Its a great place. The teachers do want you to succeed and it’s refreshing, they will help you every step of the way as best they can. You do have to help and do your part they do carry most of the load
My experiences with online classes at Carrington College-Mesa were pretty great. When I first enrolled with Carrington we started off with online classes. This was all due to COVID-19, but it was for our own safety and health. Although, online wasn't too bad even for my first time having online classes. I'm doing my third term online as we speak, therefore, we do our lab portions on campus so we can get credit for our hands on experiences as well with caution though. Our advisors have been doing their best on providing the best online teaching as possible. Even when we have internet trouble at some moments, they make sure they find ways to help assist and communicate with each of us to make sure we turn in our work on time, understand our lectures, and having patience with our learning criteria. This online portion was new to each of us, but we managed it by learning how to use the internet for education.
My experiences on being enrolled with Carrington College-Mesa are amazing by far. I truly admire how things are neatly and professionally organized by the staff members and advisors. The beginning we were doing online classes due to COVID-19, but we managed to get out work and lectures in by having Microsoft Meetings. What I like about Carrington College-Mesa is that they care about each students education and the program that they are in. By making sure we understand and by providing us with hands on experiences at campus, so we can provide a successful performance withing the medical field to our future patients. They also treat us equally within our programs by making sure we all receive the education we all deserve and are hoping to accomplish as well. The thing I would like to see change though would be the tuition because it's pretty high and pricey. Although, they are providing a great education for individuals seeking a medical degree withing the medical field.
Everything is very one on one. The people here care about you and care about your success. They will work with you from the beginning to the end. One thing I would like to see change is their tuition prices, makes it hard to be able to afford it.
I actually attend the one in Tucson and i would like to be actually taught what i signed up for. I want to learn and get the hands on training i was told i would be taught. I want realness, not fakeness.
The price is almost double of other schools with the same program. The actual program seems legit, and the director seems to have great intentions in the education of the students. Although it may be expensive, I am hoping it is worth every dime.
This school is great im a coming up freshman and cant wait to be apart of the carrington family. They are very hands on and make you feel comfortable and safe in their environment.
I think they have great programs to offer. But I do think they are well over priced.. And it's very hard to get into some programs, and they are unable to tell you your chances of getting in, or how many times you may have to apply before you get accepted
What I like about Carrington College is that the staff is welcoming and helpful. They are alert to your needs and expectations. What I would change or add to make it better would be a bigger campus location.
I like the admissions process for hygiene and not having to wait on a waitlist and I like that you can take your pre requisites at the same time, but I do not like the program cost for what we get.
Courses were going great until we had an instructor change. Second instructors first year teaching so we felt like her test students. We did not learn as much as we deserve with how much we are paying for education. This college is not so much hands on as they advertise, sadly. Front office is a mess, well for me it was, with their constant need of paper work that I had already been asked for. The only great thing about this college is the ability to provide good externship sites.
I love the staff and I love the dedication they have to teach us. I love how the courses are divided into easy classes which makes it easy for us to learn all about our materials.
I had five different teachers through the seven months of classes. I basically taught myself and everyone around me. The other students would ask me questions they didn't know or understand because the teachers either wouldn't know the answer or talk down to them for asking. Our labs where a joke we didn't ever assist even though that's the program we where in dental assisting. We learned the set ups for the different procedures but not how to pass instruments to the doctor or suction correctly. When the X-ray module came around I was the one showing the teacher how to develop digital X-rays because I was shown at an awesome office that was teaching everything this school wasn't. I was left trying to figure out how to do the lab work on my own instead of having the teacher show us the students had to work together to figure it out.
