Fortis Institute Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (111)
Ok so here it is. This school is a joke. They have new teachers left and right so you never know what you are going to get. If you want the SPT program, don't bother, THERE ARE NO TEACHERS HERE THAT KNOW SPT. All the teachers they have teaching SPT are actually scrub techs. Yeah scrub techs that don't know how to do central sterile so they cant teach you the hands on parts. I could show the same surgical instrument to three different teachers and get three different answers. I do not know what their criteria is for hiring these people but it seems to me like they take a van to a near by hospital and tell people to hop in if they want to make 100 bucks. As nice as these people are, their being nice does not do any one any favors. I went for an education and left with student loans. I could have bought the book and studied this at home.
This school is very unprofessional. They do not care about the success of students I spent 35,0000 had 5 months left and then I was dismissed from the program . Due to 3 course failures I failed with a 76.6 %. I was always at the school studying I had a 3.0 when I left. So it not like I wasn't studying they don't prepare students for HESI. Im begging you all save your money and do not attend this college. No my credits won't even transfer to a state college. I attended the psl campus in Forida
I spent 30,000 on a school whose credits did not transfer. My end goal was to become an RN. I have yet to find a school that will accept Fortis Credits so I can continue to my RN degree. I was promised by many staff that their credits were transferable. I had a 3.5 GPA so by no means am I a lazy student trying to make excuses. I am upset I wasted so much money on a degree that won't transfer. I did pass my state board exams on the first attempt. I will say the practice nclex 50 a day were well worth it.
This school is very unprofessional, they do not return phone calls. They lose paperwork and the best part is they change exams with no knowledge to the staff. The program is going down hill fast, for your own sake please look at your other options before calling Fortis.
If I would of known what I know now about this school I would never have came here. Not only is this school so unprofessional but they treat you like you are a child and talk to you like your an idiot. Not only that but the instructors are also rude and the DON talks down to you and makes you feel like your worthless. This is absolutely the worst school!!! They are so unorganized they tell you things last minute and then punish you for their mistakes it seems that instead of them wanting you to succeed their out to make you fail!! There is no sympathy and if you have children and work then don't waste your time because apparently now if you miss more than 24 hours in clinical you get kicked out of the program no questions asked!!!! Save your money and time.
I graduated this program. After giving them my money and a year and a half of my life! As a single mother I felt this was best for my next step. They pulled me in and mislead me. I paid for graduation and state board exams paid. Once I got done I was offered nothing but student loans (which I was lead to believe were pell grants ) lead to be paid. They changed their name. Beware! THEY ARE SCAMMING FOLKS!
This school has teachers not professors. Some are right out of college themselves. Too much homework and not enough time to absorb the information. The hesi test is not close to what they teach. Hard to pass. Don't get me wrong but I would not recommend this school to anyone.
Fortis is a disaster waiting to happen! DO NOT GO HERE ... Teachers stink!!!! Their extern program is a total JOKE as it is not related to the program you sign up for. Do not lose money like I did. The only applicable material/lectures was given to us by an instructor that was run off. Their instructors have No teaching experience and they are never totally prepared. I do not prepare you to take the national boards... don't waste your time or money.
I had the worst experience here! Fortis is all about money! I had a teacher actually tell me good luck if you graduate, because she knows people with associate degrees that work at McDonald's! I had to make several complaints before being taken seriously, I finished the dental program last year and still haven't found a permanent job...but I do have 30,000 worth of debt on my credit..find a school whose teachers don't bring their issues to work and you may have a better outcome
I went to Fortis College for Expanded functions dental assistant 11 months straight through now real issues. I found the school very helpful! I met and had bond with my classmate which made it that much easier. Immediately after the program i paid about $375 to take the danb state test and failed. I didnt give up i went back two months later and passed!!! I went from being unemployed to making $21hr sttaight out of school working downtown dc with monthly bonuses. My kids are older and I plan to go back for dental hygiene. There was some issues but nothing to stop me from finishing!!! Even the lack of teacher knowledge. Hope this helps
