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.)

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.

This school has a high turn over not just students. In 4-5 months all the HVAC teachers are gone. The ones they hire aren't teaching there reading from the book with no explanation.

The Dental hygiene program at Fortis College in Atlanta needs to be investigated and shut down by CODA.There are so many unlawful and unfair acts being conducted against the students by the instructors and Program director Valarie.The key to succeeding in this program is to become Dr. C a** kisser.If not you are on the s**** list and your road to success will be very difficult or even short lived.She will create new rules along the way that will keep the shit listers from passing so that you can be kicked out.The instuctors have been threatened with their jobs to follow suit.There is clearly a power struggle amoung instructors, there is no consistency as it relates to the staff or the curriculum.The atmostsphere is very stressful, cutthroat and choatic. The instructors are very messy and would rather talk about you than help you. I could go on for days about this place!!! If you are looking for a program with an enviroment that is conducive to learning, this is not the place!!!!!!!!

Fortis is like any other college. Those that are bitter and bitching obviously FAILED. Like any school you attend if you do not apply yourself you going to fail. Many Many students have passed are in successful careers and the Instructors they do care. The new Instructors, President, Dean etc they have are the best. They are well educated have Doctorate Degrees. They teach well. The students who do not make it are the ones who are degrading the school and faculty....and MOST OF YOU'LL WHO COMPLAIN ARE COMING FROM OTHER COLLEGES WHERE YOU HAVE FAILED BEFORE...SOME OVER AND OVER AND OVER.

OMG....I can't believe you wrote this. I am in their ASN program, I am very successful only because I have to teach myself. The instructors are the bottom of the barrel and there 1960 teaching style and methods are shown when you look at graduation number, not to mention the college is under probation because of the LOW grad rate and will soon will be no longer allowed to enroll any ASN student until they fix their BIG in house problem! As for the Dean she is just doing her time so she can retire...we NEVER see her and she will always back up her failing staff before she will any creditable student. The president looks and acts like a used car dealer and that putting it nicely. Take your meds!

This school is not worth anybody's time that actually wants to go into nursing. They are money hungry and are always finding ways of kicking out students for stupid reasons. My experience there has been horrible and I would never recommend anyone to go there. It is a sad excuse as a school. Even when you drop out they want you to pay more money for whatever reason and they do not let you know what the reasons are for the payment that is due.

I didn't hate it, but I didn't love it either. I have heard of worse complaints from other nursing schools in the area. With Fortis, I got what I came for. I'm a LPN. I plan to return this fall for the RN program because it is the quickest way to reach my goals. Some of my instructors were awesome and went above and beyond to ensure we understood the concepts. Some just lectured and assigned homework and told us to read the book if we had questions. There is going to be problems anywhere, there weren't many here that I couldn't ignore.

Fortis college on Michigan road is not a helpful school. They are unfair, rude and disrespectful. They don't care about your education all they want is the money. They don't teach you and Ms N. is the worst one

I attended this school for the Medical Assisting Program. You could tell that the school was not up to date with their software or equipment, yet they charge 16,000 to be apart of the program. The instructors were not informative, they were never even in the classrooms or late, but they dock your grade for being 3 minutes late. The students were loud, played around, fought, they werent there to do work. It was like a middle school. I found my own externship, because the offices they were trying to send me to were just ghetto! I was very disappointed. I would not recommend this school or the staff to anyone.

Please read CAREFULLY. Its to late for me to turn back as I am already into my nursing classes. This is a for profit college. They will sign up anyone just to get their financial aid money and as I have heard it said many times they start weeding out the students. This practice is called.... you fail 2 classes and your out. One can be a non related nursing course and another could be a core class. You are at the begging mercy of the staff to stay in school. Secondly the staff is what most would call bottom of the barrel instructors. Calling them LAZY is kind. To get any help is like pulling teeth and beware if you stand up and say something you are a trouble maker! They offend forget who pays their salary. I have seen many good students sour and drop out because of reckless teachers who would rather see you fail them spend 10 minutes trying to help you. You are on your own, don't let admissions tell you different. If you don't believe me just ask to see both bathrooms......do they look neat and clean? You would think being a nursing college they would encourage cleanliness. Not the case here. Finally before you sign call the board of nursing ask them what status Fortis Largo is in. We are and have been under probation because students are not able to pass the boards. Do you see a theme here? And last but not least is our wonderful dean of nursing.....she is an ordainment and will do nothing to help you succeed. You have been warned.
