Fortis College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (182)
No school is perfect! The only problems I had was with the students. The school is ok you just have to apply yourself and be determined. I hate that so many student bad mouth the school when the problem is the student him or herself. Fortis is better than a lot of schools that I hear people talk about. We had so many reference book, cds and online access for extra learning. I was very prepared for the NCLEX. I passed the first time.
I studied hard but still averaged a C/B grade. They tell you how you will be successful and they are interested in your outcome. Unfortunately they are only interested in your money and not you as a student. I would never recommend this school to anyone. I would suggest you goto a school with a good background check... Not Fortis!!! After I was a student and met other students no one seems to like this school. They are only out for money not your education.
Horrible don't go there scam and why government is regulating the private sector Way over priced horrible classrooms where does the 40,000 go Admissions lied not making anywhere near what I should Teachers were the only good thing
This school is a joke. I would never attend it. The students are nothing but drama, it's like high school all over again. Sad part is these are our future nurses who will never be able to work in a hospital. They try to tell you what career path to take to lead you in the wrong direction due to the fact they think they know more about you from a 30 min. Interview. Half the people that attended this school can't write a proper sentence to save their lives. Their spelling is similar to a 3rd grader. Now let's talk money, you will pay double the amount to attend this school and the credits won't transfer to another college if you want to further you're career.
this school has been awesome to me... i had one issue with one instructor since starting school in august 2012.. but the instructor was an awesome intelligent teacher.... so i didnt care how much i didnt like "her".... i deal with issues and not personalities!! and so far i havent had one issue with this school!! it is such a shame to see all the bad reviews....but if you got o school witht he mindset of im doing this for me then you will be o.k.
Fortis College in GA is really good. Our medical assisting classes are taught by medical doctors, whom were medical assistants themselves. They have a A+ rating with BBB. The staff really care abd push you to succeed. My complaint is the lack of finanicial resources available to students. I also wouldn't recommend this school to anyone who wants to transfer credits. It is a school that helps you get in and out as soon as possible so you can get a job. This is why I joined the school so it works for me!
There is a director of dental assisting named Ms G that verbally attacked me in the waiting room. She is a poor role model and I will never recommend or attend this college.. She is unprofessional!! I would recommend that you find people who will represent your school positively. MS G does not even know me. She is a rude woman!!
Going to this school was the BIGGEST mistake that I have EVER made. They will screw you out of whatever money they can and make sure that you have issues going to school anywhere else! I DEFINATELY WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS SCHOOL TO ANYONE. I wish I never even went here.
In June 2011, I was laid off and decided to further my education. Went to Fortis college, my biggest regret, and at the beginning every one its friendly. At first thought it was a great school, boy was I wrong. The school is overpriced, the staff are rude and very unprofessional. One of teacher,had the nerve to confront me about what I said to the program director.REALLY! I been failing in her class. The teacher couldn't show my work to the program director. Still this day couldn't anyone explained why I failed only in her classes. Was given bad advise by staff. I was 3 months when I started the program. In my six months, I was having 12 contractions in a hour. I was order to be on bed rest. Had a week left before the term ended. Asked about taking my final, I was advise to wait until a certain day. Went to school that day, teacher stated that I couldn't take my final b/c the end of term was the day before. So I didn't take my final b/c the teacher told me to come a day after the term ended. Had my baby in December school expects me to come back the first week in January had three classes.Went to program director to dropped a class. Program director advise for me not to attend class b/c it I dropped one class it would mess with my financial aid. If I don't attend its going to mess with my financial aid too. Ended up failing class had no chose. Fortis college have the highest retention rate. I would NEVER recommend fortis to anyone not even my enemies. I had one class left before my externship I was dropped from school. The reason I have past the allotted time to complete my course and by me having a baby and was on bed rest had played a part in it.I can't beleive that B@@ch said that to me. How dare you blame my pregnancy! I had took out 10 thousand in loans and don't have a degree to show and when I was dropped the loan was sent back so now I owe the school $1500. Wow!! Fortis College should be CLOSED!!
It is the worst program I have ever attended. The admission department harass you to the point of restraining order level to get you in then you're on your on from there. There's an exit exam that must be passed in order to graduate that the school gives no preparation for. Then when you fail( whether missing by 1 point or 10 points) you have to repeat a whole semester of medsurg, including all clinicals, labs, sim labs, etc... even if you passed the class with an A! That A that you worked hard for is turned to an F and those clinicals, labs, and SIM labs that consumed your every waking hour get erased and turned to zeros! Then upon returning to do the walk of shame to now join the class that was once behind you, you're told you have to attend tutoring once a week...not tutoring for the exit exam you failed but for the medsurg class you passed...Ummmm, can anyone tell me what's wrong with this picture? So, after suffering the humiliation of not graduating and having to now sit in class day-by-day with those students that just threw you a pre-graduation party weeks earlier, you're now told that you're all out of financial aid and now have to pay out of pocket for you're failure, with no guarantee that at the end of these four months and $3,300, that you'll be passing the hesi this time around either. You go to your Dean of Nursing with concerns about the situation and are told that you're worrying over nothing or that you only have yourself to blame because you apparently didn't prepare enough. Then to add insult to injury, you get told, "the reason the school's nclex pass rate has fallen below their standards is because all the cheating the students are doing, not because the program is lacking". I am living in a nightmare with no end in sight. I've been working in the health field all my life, and am normally a very cheerful person, looking for the fun in everything( a smile a day keeps the blues away) but this program has broken my spirits. I have to fight for the will to get out of bed each day to face the horrible, terrible, monster I call...FORTIS COLLEGE
