"Don’t waste your time and money here. This nursing program is a joke. It’s a business not a school. All they care about is to get you in and get your money. The dean and staff are so hard to get a hold of yet expect things by a certain date. This school doesn’t know what they’re doing and they’re so unorganized."

"By far one the worst institutions out there. Literally is only there to take money from students. Please do your research on this place before looking into it. There’s a false advertisement on the graduation rate of students. They brag about having a 100% graduation rate but also purposely don’t mention they drop 80% of the starting class. They also aren’t accredited to the state so you can’t even transfer your credits over to another institution. Definitely not worth anyone’s time."

"this school is a joke!!!!!!! DO NOT GO TO FORTIS INSTITUTE. All they care about is your money. they bribe you at the beginning and they lie. and they don't prepare you for the exams, the HESI or whatever. I failed the HESI because they made us study the wrong materials. none of what we studied was on the HESI. And they just kick me out without a word. they are so unorganized, they will smile in your face and get all your money and they leave you dry. I EMAIL THE PRESIDENT OF THE SCHOOL FOR AN APPPEAL AND HE SAID THEY WERE GOING TO DISCUSSS IT AS A COMMITEE AND HE WILL GET BACK TO ME . I NEVER HEARD FROM HIM AFTER THAT.DO YOURSELF A FAVOR SAVE YOUR MONEY, TIME AND ENERGY SOMEWHERE ELSE THAT WILL TREAT YOU LIKE A HUMAN BEING."

"Started here for nursing. All they care about is money pure and simple. I found two other accredited schools that will give you the same degree for more than half the price. They do not care about student’s education all they care about is money. Do not apply here go to a different school where you’ll have refunds each semester to help with monthly bills instead of getting another bill while in college."

"So this school is really a joke every teacher I have came across really don’t care about the students. I am not the type to joke around and bring my personal life in to school so I guess that’s why most of the teachers didn’t vibe with me cause I wasn’t unprofessional like other students but the fundamental teacher is a joke and she is racist and will make jokes about it in class the campus president is aware of the things she do and he don’t do anything cause she is the clinical director at skyline which is also a mess and disorganized. Most of the students complain and say they are teaching them self yet they stay and continue to waste time and money because none of the credits will transfer. I just finished my first year passed my exams and my grade was up to standard but they make you hesi out ok fine the thing Is the teacher claim they don’t know what’s on the hesi and you really can’t study or prepare for it and when you fail it it can drop your grade and cause you to fail the entire call and when I ask the campus president about it who is very rude and could give a dam about any student his reasons was so students take it serious and my response back to him was well can you prepare students for it. They have not teacher and open lab is a joke it a mess and it’s all about money so I decided to withdraw wasted my time and my money. PLEASE DO NOT COME TO THIS SCHOOL NASHVILLE CAMPUS"

"This place is a joke. They do not teach they just tell you to read the book. Staff is unprofessional and constantly turning over. We constantly go the dean who has no clue about how the program works and he does nothing. Campus director refuses to respond back when they are given bad reviews. The software they use never works, staff has no control over how tests are made. This campus has a massive dropout rate due its administration and its "policies".Save your money and your time and just go to a real school, not a joke like this place."

"Worst college experience I have ever had. I was bullied by the Dean of nursing who refused to adhere to my 504/IEP out of spite, left traumatized 50,000.00 in debt and no transferable credits. I found some of the best teachers here but they leave frequently do to job stress and incivility."

"This school is a joke!!!!! They tell you lies to get you into the door, all they want is your money. They lose instructors like crazy and the teachers have no idea what they are talking about or teaching. This school is so disorganized, they change schedules at a whim and the dean is literally living in another world. All this school wants is your money they don't care about the students at all! I got out after a year of them screwing up my financial aide all the time and talking to a bunch of students ahead of me and discovering how many people fail out of this school with massive amounts of debt. I even talked to the capstone teacher about the passing rate and finding out how many people didn't pass the class of the program and the teachers response was "they just want it enough, they didn't put in the dedication that they should have". I find it very hard to believe students who spent 2 years of their life going to this school and paying about $48,000 wouldn't want to pass the program. STAY AWAY FROM THIS SCHOOL AND LEARN FROM MY MISTAKES!"

"Honestly, my time on campus was great.. Graduated highest honors and landed my first job shortly thereafter... but for some reason and cannot figure out why, after 8 years after graduation, the school cannot provide me an official transcript to provide to a potential employer.. Where are my student records? I guess it doesnt matter since they got their money..or so it seems ......."

"If I could give 0 stars I would but I can’t. They lie to get you in the door and once you start you find out the credits do not transfer so you are basically a hostage to the school or you loose everything. They are unorganized, constantly change your schedule they change due dates and when you get to the last term after paying almost $50000 they have you do a final simulation that they say you have been training for you have not because they give you charts out of the dark ages and medications that do not even look at match up w drug books and then have you do so many crazy steps that are not real life. Then fail 75% of the students and make them retake the qtr again it’s ridiculous and if they need to be reported for all the lies. They career service lady just told us this fortis degree makes you ineligible for working at govt hospitals that was also never said before. Stay away from here they need to be shut down"

"This school is the worst school I have ever been to!! They literally teach you nothing and don’t care if you pass or not. All they care about is money. The Centerville campus in Ohio should be shut down because of how unorganized and unprofessional they are. I am paying 40,00 to learn nothing , I am having to learn everything off YouTube myself. I regret signing up for this school. Do not go here you will not learn a thing and will be over charged for an associates degree. The nursing Foundations class is a joke and you will also learn nothing there. The teacher teaches nothing and is unprofessional and doesn’t help you with any work or anything. She has not even taught us how to do blood pressures. She never taught about it and just told Is to practice on our partners and now wants to test us on something she has never even taught us in the first place, she is a terrible instructor and shouldn’t teach . The school is terrible , you learn nothing , you Have no resources , the teachers or dean doesn’t care about you at all. Save you money if you are in Ohio go to Honduras or Kettering I heard they are great and you learn a lot and the school is very good l."

"I am current enrolled in the RN program at Fortis College. Please do not come to this school!!! I have talked several friends out of going to this school. If you decide to enroll remember that warning. I have not failed any classes, I am one of the few. The school does not care if you graduate with your degree. It is for profit, if you get a degree or not does not matter. The exams have nothing to do with the subjects that the instructor goes over in class, or go over in during the exam study group with the instructor. The exams are pretty much your entire grade. If you ignore this warning, do so at your own expense."

"I won’t recommend this school for anyone.You can do all your assignments, quizzes and tests on time with good grades but if life happens and you’re unable to pass the Hesi, all your efforts go down the drain.You cannot retake the Hesi which is 20% of your total grade .This is unfair and you can fail with 77.99. Go elsewhere and don’t waste your time and money."

"Thanks for your scam after struggling with students loans, you lured students into a big debt, your pocket is full of money that you scam, I'm a single mom and wanted to get a better job, better life, better house , after graduation can't find work, all you care about is the money, I'm overwhelmed, depressed, and regret. Keep feeding your family with the money that you scam. The students are unprofessional, gossip including the instructors, fake, horrible personalities, they talk about their personal lives than teaching. They don't care about teaching after lured your money. You're warn! Be aware of their scam if you read this, keep up with the good scam."

"Terrible school. Current student and I honestly wouldn’t recommend this place to anyone. They act like they care about you but they only care about the money and keeping their “success rate” up... they do that by kicking you out of the program if you aren’t up to their standards. They treat you as if you are in high school and not adults in college. Teachers and instructors seem to care and go to great efforts to help you. Administration sucks."
