This school is a scam. The professors are instructed to fail at least one person per quarter. My professor last semester passed everyone in the class. She was a great instructor and all of my classmates including myself passed our exit exams for the class. This professor was fired! The turnover rate with professors is very high. The fast pace of the class is difficult for professors to pickup if they have not done that before and most have not. My cohort started with 30 people in it. We have three months left and there are only 10 of us left. Most of those people are from the cohort ahead of me and have been held back. Your grades in the class don't matter. Your testing percentage is the only thing that lets you move on. Get a back professor one term and you're in trouble. Administration messed up on my financial aid multiple times. I attended the school for over a year and they said they had no paperwork on me. The person in admission didn't send my paperwork in. Six months later they called me in and said the same thing. They cashed my check every month that's for sure. My professor this term refused to meet with me. One class that we only attended 5 times all term, gave us a worksheet and no instruction for 5 hours while we sat there and did a fill-in the blank. Standards and policies change every term. Do yourself a favor and don't waste your money here.

Some of the teachers at Fortis are great but others are HORRIBLE! Pediatrics course was taught very poorly and the teacher could care less about you education and your future. After talking to administration they seemed to care as much as the teacher did. Spend your $40,00 else where and go to a different school that cares about your education.

Stay away from Fortis Nursing program! Your homework, quizzes, or case studies won't help you if you needed 1 point to pass a class. The passing grade is a 78 for each nursing course and all your exams as well as your overall class average has to be a 78 also. The staff won't offer any help if needed! Beware!

I know from experience. I am a graduate from this school. They do not support their graduates. I have not received a diploma from this college even after graduating. This is supposed to feel like a big accomplishment for me, but somehow, this school has made me feel like a failure. They will not return my phone calls nor am I able to get in contact with anyone about anything. There goes the "support after you graduate" line I was given after signing up. All you get when calling the school is an operator, which transfers you to whoever, then a voice mail. This has been mostly my entire experience; not being able to get in contact with the proper channels when needing to resolve an issue. Throughout the program, there were only a handful of instructors who were actually of any assistance. Not only that, but when getting out there networking with other graduates in my field from better colleges, they had been trained in areas I knew nothing about. When asked a question about a subject in the field, I felt completely embarrassed when I wasn’t able to respond. I feel like such a looser for choosing this college. Something really needs to be done about these diploma mill schools just out there to use students by telling them what they want to hear to sign them on, then providing substandard services and education; all the while laughing their way to the bank. This entire system is failing in the educational department and not a d** thing is being done about it.

This is a high school mentality atmosphere so be prepared, Its is all about the emotions of the instructors and it seems that no one wants to be there...

OMG..Where do I start? Ok lets start with the positive, the president is awesome very cool and down to earth,the enrollment staff are definitely high class scam artists. (but that's their job so I wont blame them....) THE HORRIBLE TEACHERS....It's very obvious that the teachers don't care any about their jobs or students, do 7 1/2 hr classes reading off an overhead sound like teaching? Teachers show up late, constantly answering their phones through class. One professor in particular , the Nursing Anatomy teacher definitely needs to be put under review and fired. Constant cursing and negative remarks make for an un-easy class. Lol and its obvious that most people posting positive comments about Fortis College are employees. I'm so glad I made it through that horrible school.. Oh and dont get me started on the Cost. If you still want to ignore my warnings go ahead,but make sure you look at the charges on your accounts, they're notorious for double and tripple charging you for the same things.

THE ADMISSION STAFF ARE ROBOTS THEY ALL SAY THE EXACT SAME THING. THE ADMISSIONS DIRECTOR IS RUDE AND DISRESPECTFUL. I WAS NOT PREPAREDTO PAY MY APPLICATION FEE AT THE TIME OF MY VISIT AND SHE ASKED ME, "WELL DOESN'T SOMEONE LOVE YOU CALL THEM AND TELL THEM TO PAY IT". ALL THE WHILE SHE WAS EATING SUNFLOWER SEEDS WHILE TALKING TO ME. THAT WAS ENOUGH FOR ME TO WALK OUT THE DOOR. IF SHE WERE NOT IN CHARGE THE ADMISSION REPS MIGHT BE ABLE TO TELL THE TRUTH AND ACTUALLY HELP PEOPLE.

Before I started school with Fortis, they assured me that I would have excellent instructors, and that after completion of the program, they even had a department that would help with job assistance. I started the program. During the 11 months, they could not keep instructors at the school, instructores were late for classes, they even has some instructors teaching classes that were not qualified for that particular course of study. Communication between the students and the school was POOR. When there were changes to the course of study or when teachers were unavailable for the day for classes, they made no attempts to notify the students of these changes. Once the course was completed, the career services made NO attempts to help with job placement, as promised at the start of the program. Once the school gets your money, you see how important your success really is to them............Now, they will probably blow all of this off and lead you to believe I was probably a bad student to begin with, but just so you know.....I passed all of my exams, made the deans list twice and the presidents list once and graduated with a 4.0 grade point average. This is not the first time I have been in school, and NEVER have I had a complaint about any institution I attended until now.

Great experience. All,those students who complain about the Instructors and College should leave and go to another school. Its not the school who makes you,no,one meets you half way in life you have to go all the way ,

Are you on CRACK? Anyone that knows anything about Fortis knows that you can not transfer credits! You are stuck in their program. WHY you ask? Because they are not accredited like they told me and others and they are currently under probation due to the fact that no student can pass the boards. Do your homework before you make yourself look so stupid! And if you want to take this one step further ask yourself where are you doing you clinicals? That should tell you all you need to know.

For example: Ask clarifying questions, share your experience with this school, ask for more information (on classes, professors, career opportunities, etc.)

If you had a good experience with this school then great, but you should never criticize others for telling about their own experiences positive or negative.

The clinicals were not appropriate for a senior RN students. They were more appropriate for LPN's. I also received no critical care experience which was unacceptable.
