STUDENTS BEWARE!!! they lie to you up front... these credits DO NOT TRANSFER ANYWHERE!!! they tell you they do.... lied to! We started with over 30 students in health assessment (NEW TEACHER!!). When only 15 got to pharmacology, (NEW TEACHER AGAIN!!!) only 4 passed the class... the teachers do not write their tests.... the administration do... HELLO how can you teach when the teacher doesn't know what is on the test..... THEY TELL you that you can repeat the class.... OH>. and you will pay to retake it also!!! BIG BUCKS. I waisted $25,000 (student loans) on nothing... left after pharm... complete waist of time. not only do I not have a degree but I will have to pay for this bad school who just wants your money... they don't care about teaching the student how to be a good nurse... or how to help you understand information... don't waste your time in the Salt Lake City campus... ITS A JOKE!!!
Horrible curriculum. 12 weeks of rushed information. RRE class is not preparing you for registry exam...you dont review you never open a book in this class to review all you do is take random test and pass 4 out of 12 whole class failing. Dont go here
I felt at the time I attended received a lot of support from staff. I completed Medical Assistant and Medical Billing & Coding program with diploma. Also completed Associate Degree in Applied Science in Medical Business and Clinical Specialist. Problem is want to attend school for nursing and none of my nursing classes from Fortis transfer over. So I have to start all over do I can pursue my dream to become a nurse. It is upsetting after all the hard work I put in school. Now stuck with a 40k loan and only making close to minimum wage right now.
STAY AWAY FROM FORTIS!!! On April 2018 they withdrew me from my program i was supposed to graduate on July 2018 they stated that I had not done any work for over 2 weeks which is not true, when i tried reaching out to them to see what can be done they stated nothing, i would have to go through the admission process again, which I wish i was so close to graduating and i agreed to it, a week later they never answered my email, when i call they give me the run around. its 7/31/2018 and i had to enroll in another school in order to finish and my credits from fortis the majority where not transferable.
If I could do it all over again I would not have chosen Fortis. Felt like I had to do the classes on my own. Was a good student and missed one class in my final term by one point. I appealed three times and was blown off. Then recently I get a letter from a collector saying they were going to garnish my wages over 800$! I later found out after I left Fortis billed me and never told me instead quietly sold it to collections. My advice;stay away from Fortis and for all you folks that got screwed like me-get a lawyer.
My wife attending Fortis College in Orange Park. After graduating and passing the NCLEX for RN, she is now finding it difficult to find a job. Several places have told her they would not hire her because Fortis did not have accreditation. She was led to believe they were while attending.
This school is a joke . They are just worried about their money and thats it. Student like and academic are not something that comes first at this school . My education was put on the back burner. I search for guidance, and a mentor but no one would give the time of day. I wouldnt recommended this school to anyone .
Fortis college is not reccomendable I started January 16 2018 left the School in Feburary less than a month and they sent a letter in the mail stating that I owe the School 2,500 within 30 days which is ridiculous I havent been there for no more than a month their teaching is very high schoolish learning off of slides that are not theirs and its taken offline they pass your tests even if you failed just to get you through the course .. all fortis care about is money and I have tons of regrets going here Im going to continue my education at community college then a university I DO NOT RECCOMEND THIS COLLEGE AT ALL
Don't go to this school! I went to Fortis College in hopes of landing a job as a Certified Medical Assistant. I thought, if I worked hard, and put in my best effort and dedication, I would get what I worked for. I did have some health care background, so the classes and tests were easy for me! But I was in for a rude awakening! All they care about is your tuition money and government funds once you walk through those doors. First thing, the school hands-on training is poor when compared to other schools, as I later found out! During the time we were there, their excuse was that the wrong lab supplies (needles) had been ordered by previous staff members so we had to suck it up! Their computer lab was a joke! They used refurbished computers that were in bad shape and with dead batteries! I passed all my courses in school and was thrown on an extern site with a very high turnover rate, where I felt like I was used as free labor, rather than getting more hands-on training. During the course of my externship, I saw MAs getting hired from another school. The school itself has a high instructor turnover rate as well. Some teachers were good and supportive, but some others could barely speak English. We saw one or two who got fired while we were there. I worked very hard on my externship site, got very little hands-on training while I was there and didn't get hired. I completed my externship hours, and passed the Certification Exam on the first attempt. I felt I have done everything right! I wasted my gas, time, and money attending this school, driving back and forth to my externship site, and to interviews to be told they chose another candidate. Even with this hot job market, many employers still require at least 2 years experience as a Medical Assistant. I think that schools inflate the career prospects for entry-level MAs! I urge you to do your own research before enrolling in this school!
I really wish I went to a different school. I had many different problems with the teachers, staff members, and admission. For the amount of money you pay for the class, I would advise any person to go to a community college. It just seem like the Fortis College really don't care about the students, they only care about the money.
