Fortis College Reviews
Will not recommend this school to anyone. Specially to someone that you love. It is the WORST school ever. The quality of management, the quality of the education and the quality of the professors are all the lowest can be for a college. This is not a subjective evaluation. I have more than one testimony to prove it. Go to a decent school.
It is ridiculous that Corporate was the one making the test when they are not the one teaching the students. I think personally that students were being set up for failure so they could get more money out of students. I would definitely not recommend this stupid school to anybody. If corporate wants to run the show, they should be the one coming to classroom teaching students. Our teachers can only do so much. They are good teachers, but the test really screwing the students up.
Fortis was a great school to start my nursing career with. The teachers there, for the most part, were awesome and cared about the students. Was it difficult...you bet. Is it expensive...oh yeah. Luckily, I have the GI Bill so I switched from a community college to Fortis because there was no waiting list to start clinicals. Honestly, even without the GI Bill it would have been worth it. The class sizes, teachers, and overall experience was more personable than the local community college. Most of the negative reviews I read on here are some of the same things I heard some of my prior classmates complain about and honestly, there is probably merit to less than 10% of it. You know it is a for profit college before you start, so why complain about the tuition. You know it is nationally accredited so most regionally accredited colleges won't transfer their classes (which doesn't matter if you plan on stopping at your ADN). However, I have just started a RN to MSN program with WGU and they took all my Fortis general education classes. APU, Chamberlain, and Kaplan do also so some regionally accredited and CCNE accredited will take Fortis transfers, just have to know where to look. Most of the people I found that complain either failed out and want someone to blame but I found Fortis to be a great place to get a education and start my nursing career. Is it perfect, of course not, but what in life is? It is better than the community college I attended though and I am glad I switched!!!
I think that Fortis Online is a great college regarding the academics side.They have a lot of great teachers who really seem to to care about helping achieve your goals.They also have a really good academic support team who really try to make sure that you stay focused and reach your full potential.The only department that I feel could really use a lot of improvement and possibly even a whole new staff is the financial aid department.They take forever to respond to you when you leave a message or email if they respond back at all.When they finally respond back they usually tell you just enough to get you to stop calling or emailing.They also take forever to send you the balance of what's left once your tuition and books have been paid. In closing I would recommend Fortis Online as a great school but you have to stay on top of the financial aid department because their services really leave something to be desired.
Don't not recommend this school at all. The teacher is horrible. Spring told the class if she was a serial killer I would be her first victim. Then they was to charge me 5000 out of pocket because they wouldn't let me come because of finicale situations.
The worst decision I ever made in my life!!! I don't recommend this school to anyone...accreditation not very good, bias clinical instructors who favor their love ones, the school is not well organised, instructors quit in the middle of the semester.....
Fortis College was a great experience it taught me a lot about HVAC/R that I didn't know. The instructor were great. We received a new director right before I graduated and he name was George Fordyce and he made the whole department much better. The instructors will help you in anyway to receive the grades that you deserve. The school helped me to get a good job with a good company. I very highly recommend Fortis College to anyone that would like to receive a HVAC/R certificate.
Do NOT go to FORTIS for surgical tech. The main "teacher" N. is horrible. You will spend 30k and have to look up your education from google and youtube. She literally hates her students. She is miserable in life and takes it out on her students. The worst "educational" experience I have ever had. I don't know how a person like this is allowed to teach. And she is the only instructor for the whole program. The program director is actually really good. Actually she is the new program director because the old one quit 1 year into her job. This school has some caring people and some good educators but the main instructor for surgical tech shouldn't be allowed near students. You could literally get the same education from google and youtube. She will pick a student she dosnt like and bully them until they fail or quit and then say well that's how it is "the OR eats its own". I don't know how she lives with herself. The school already cut her down to 20hrs a week because they want her to quit. But she keeps on coming back and taking it out on her students and talking bad about the CEO who is doing her best. And no one else will hire her probably. Its really sad to pay this much and have only one instructor and have them be so mean and miserable. I would never recommend this program until they get an actual teacher and not a hateful clock rider that could careless.
I highly recommend Fortis College. I thank God, my family, as well as my nursing instructors who believe in me. I believe that being in nursing school it is very challenging. I realized being a nurse takes a lot of efforts, challenges, patience, and grace to overcome each challege but with the right attidute, the right fellow students, and the right instructors who are passionate about nursing, you can managed to get into the end. The nursing instructor not only teach you textbook material, they help you see out of the box, and help you change the way your mind processes, (Critical thinking)The Director of Nursing did provided all the educational tools needed to successed. Its a lot to study, you are expected to give 200%, but when you take your Nclex-RN Examination and passed, then you get interviewed for a RN position in a Hospital and get hired, at that point everything that you had to study and sacrified becomes insignificant. Believe me patients will feel safe when the RN give 200% to them. You as an RN will guard your career, especially when you had gone throu a lot to get your license.
This is by far the worst school to attend to get a nursing degree never have I ever in all my years of going to school have I ever had a teacher tell me should would not answer my question.... I thought that's what I paid you to do answer my questions
