Student & Graduate Reviews (186)
THIS SCHOOL IS A COMPLETE NIGHTMARE! HEED THE WARNINGS PEOPLE!! I'VE BEEN GOING HERE SINCE JANUARY 2013 WHEN IT WAS STILL CALLED MEDVANCE. THIS PLACE DOES NOT HAVE THEIR SHIT TOGETHER, THE TEACHERS ARE A JOKE, CLINICAL SITES....DON'T EVEN GET ME STARTED. IM LITERALLY 4 WEEKS AWAY FROM GRADUATING AND THIS SCHOOL IS SCRUBS UP ALL OUR CLINICAL HOURS SINCE WE FIRST STARTED GOING! IF I COULD GO BACK IN TAKE I WOULD HAVE TURNED AROUND AND WALKED AWAY. PLEASE!!!! DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND DO NOT COME TO THIS SCHOOL. THAT IS OF COURSE, IF YOU DON'T WANT TO WAS TE 28,000 DOLLARS AND HAVE NOTHING TO SHOW FOR IT. FIND ANOTHER SCHOOL! IF IT'S SEEMS TO GOOD TO BE TRUE, IT PROBABLY IS.
I have been attending this school for 6 months. I recently withdrew. I have always made excellent grades (Bachelors degree in Biology 3.9 GPA from REAL COLLEGE) This school is absurd. The instructors for the nursing program are all over the place. The SIM lab teacher is teaching material that was on the syllabus 2 weeks ago and he is testing on material we haven't covered. No point in discussing this with the DON or the President of the school because they don't care. We have taken a petition about these instructors and all we are told is that it is not the instructors it is the students and if we can't handle the nursing program then drop out. What kind of instructors or school President says that! Not all of us are wrong. This is why the NCLEX pass rate is below standard and we have heard the nursing program is on probation now. 48,000 for this degree and no one in the school cares if we pass or not. Please save your money and go to a college who supports education and strives for their students to pass the NCLEX. Don't be fooled by any of the enrollment counselors. Speak with some of the students. Look around, the halls are bare. So many of us are withdrawing and going to other schools because this is our career and we want to be trained properly. Would you want a nurse taking care of you or a loved one who struggled to pass their state test? Not me. Many of us later found out that they are not eligible for NLNAC which greatly reduces your chances of working at many of the larger hospitals in the area. Bay Care, ACH, Bayfront, etc... won't even hire Fortis Grads. I should have done my homework better before enrolling in this school. You should too. DON'T DO IT
What a joke! 100% UNPROFESSIONAL!!! For 60K wait to get into a community college, plus you'll have a better educational experience! All they offer are pompous attitudes! I thought DH school was suppose to be hard because of the info not the petty high school mentality of the professors, students and rest of the faculty!
Class sizes are to big,students rude,teachers play utube videos as a way to sit in their offices to eat! Teachers never make time to help you and in fact they remind you they have lives too!
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!
