All of these people saying fortis is horrible is all an opinion. Yes, maybe they are disorganized. Most schools have disorganization, if you make copies of everything you give to the school nothing is ever lost. I went there and completed my LPN.

I thought it was a great program I never had a teacher just not show up. I have very educated teachers some that ended up leaving to teach at major universities. You get what you put into fortis. It is a hard school its accelerated what do you expect basically a test everyday.

I finished with all A's and B's. My teachers were there if I had any problems. I overall had a great experience. Do not let all of these reviews persuade you.

When you go to speak with the admissions representatives they will lie to get you to join. This is NOT the same program as other RT programs. You can NOT work in a big hospital or image center.

The equipment you learn on does NOT work but there is something to look at. The class size is so large that most of your teaching has to be done in tutoring on your own time in the day before class or you just dont get to learn it. If you mention this the director of the program will come to your class and get an attitude with you in front of everyone there.

Dont bother to talk to the Dean because he will let them know it was you that voiced your concern, so you can get talked to like a small child in front of 32 of your peers. All the while being told its not their fault this class is over flowing. Dont worry about any prerequisites for any of the classes, you will have them AFTER you needed them not before( hence the reason they are called prerequisites )Then to top it off as your very last class they can suck more money from you is College success! Im so glad i get to learn how to succeed in college 3 weeks before im out!

Please exhaust all other possibilities before choosing Fortis College. I am currently a student in the PN program in Tampa and it is not unusual to show up for clinicals and no instructor show. Clinical sites are very far from the main campus.Very disorganized campus which adds and not aids to the stress of nursing school.

I think the school in all, is very organized and the employees there are nice and willing to work to help you. I have looked into 3 different colleges Akron U and Kent State along with NMTA. All over priced. Longer clinicals and atleast 10 Gs more then whst i averaged the LPN courses at.

I have friends from other Nursing schools that have recomended me to Fortis. Like any school there are draw backs. Look up reviews on any school there is always negative feedback

Fortis College is a rip off!! I feel I wasted my time and money here and Fortis does not prepare any students for a real nursing career outside of a nursing home, because clinicals consists of CNA work!

I am a current nursing student at Fortis in Salt Lake City. On my first visit to view the school I did have a poor experience with one of the sales/enrollers, however it was corrected immediately. Other than that one incident, I have not had any problems what so ever. In fact, I find the staff and faculty to be completely professional and organized.

My experience has been, if I've asked a question and the staff doesn't have the answer, they find the answer and get back to me. In response to the person who mentioned in their review that they were never given information about who to make payment to, I have not found that to be true. Each time money is paid to the school for my loans, I receive notification from the agency who is funding th loans.

Their documentation informs me that I have 30 days in which to contest the funds they have given the school in my behalf. In conclusion,I am highly satisfied with the school and would highly recommend Forits College to any family or friends.

Officially I have been “screwed over” by Fortis which should have been a positive impact on my life. I will be sure to share and spread my negative experience with Fortis to others. I did not find the education worth $26,000. Plus it consist of poor education and services. Not to mention the school over charges for the merchandise you receive.

The merchandise is by far cheaper if you were to purchases it at a retail store. I feel the classes did not cover enough information to be confident in entering the workforce. The classes are not licensed. I find it completely wrong and miss leading to students who enter this school. The registration representatives do not tell future students the full truth on the programs.

The school is not properly accredited by recognized organizations that will consider the degrees “gainful employment”! I will not be paying the $1,000 and some odd dollars you guys are charging me for my final week. I didn’t even participate in that week. A $1,000 is absurd for one week.

I have found the Fortis “success” team worthless in every aspect. Not once was anyone one there for my question I’ve address while enrolled. Fortis College is nothing more than a “joke”! I feel sorry for future students wasting away all that money when they can use it for a real recognized education.

Another thing, I have asked 3 times who my loans are through and no one can seem to tell me. I have not gotten any information or who I make payments to. What kind of business are you guys running there? Fortis takes out loans for people without telling them who the loans are through and who to make payments too. My attorney has told me just by the school doing so I have a case. He is currently reviewing my case. From what I have been informed I will be getting all that wasted money back. Especially once the law is passed against post secondary schools.

Fortis, like any school, has its mishaps. some teachers suck, others are outstanding! Most of the teachers i have had, have made a genuine effort to help me get through school. You have to put in the time and effort to make it through the classes, but no one at the school seems happy when you fail, just bc they recieve the pay out.

As far as the administration goes, they are having quite a few issues bc of the name change and everything that their doing to get us accedidation. But i strongly believe that they are trying hard to work their issues out for their students.

Like any school, you need to do the research and check the status and background of the school. It's not the place for everyone, but if you're willing to work hard, you will come out on top and be successful in your schooling and in you possible carreer. The school is not a joke. It takes real effort to get through. I would recommemd it!!

Fortis College, Columbus is coming up very good.

The reason why you see some student complaining is because the are not ready to study hard, they still feel like they are still in high school where you will not do a serious reading and still pass their exams.Girls $ Boys grow up, you need to study, before you can pass, this nursing college and not a high school people. Stop castigating the school or the teachers. There might be one or two bad teacher, but not all of them. in fact the teacher are real trying their best.Note that this school is just coming up, and they will get. Rome was not build in a day.
