"I would never discourage a person from going to Fortis. My reason being is that everyone has their own experience there. I would just like to share my story. I was a senior in highschool, also a mom, and so confused about what to do. Fortis came into the highschool and gave their last speech for the year. I decided to sign up and went in for an interview. I was accepted, loved everything I heard and had everything ready to go, for 2 weeks after I would graduate highschool. I started school in July, would of graduated in Dec. 2015. My first mod there consisted of English, math, informatics and human phys.- pretty much a breeze through those. Second mod was nutrition, psychology, nursing basics, labs, math. I ended up failing nursing basics and math, they were a combined grade so I technically failed both. Discouraged and sad, I decided to just try again. I ended up passing, pushing my graduation date 3 months ahead to March, ended up with a different mod and class. Moving on to 3rd mod, we started clinicals twice a week and another fundamentals to nursing, geriatrics, labs and pharmacology. I passed ultimately and moved on to 4th mod. That was clinicals 3x a week and classes, med surg, labs and obstetrics. I went halfway through the mod and dropped. I was failing, I was way behind on what I should have known. I didn't feel prepared at all. So as though everything seemed well Ill list everything wrong. -A teacher was let go because of budget cuts, we have 3 different instructors for 2 weeks and then they hired the original teacher back. -We were 6 weeks through 2nd mod, and because of the fire of our original teacher, we had to relearn everything from week 1-6 because the new teacher didn't think the original teacher was any good at teacher (her words pretty much) -During clinicals a teacher was coming in and telling us to go home instead of doing clinicals, which we got in trouble for. Noone told because we didn't know what to do. We were told to follow what the instructor did. She ended up leaving after that. -We lost our dean, and the new one came in clueless trying to readjust everything, screwing up schedules. We started our 3rd mod with no schedule for a week, and they were still wrong. -We went 10 weeks through pharm class missing a book that would have really helped us out, mind you people failed pharm and some were very very close -A teacher resigned her position, leaving us with a lab teacher who had no idea how to run the lab, because training was done in another state for 2 weeks and she was the only one that learned it. - They switched our schedules multiple times during the mod - The new dean made a new rule if you fail 2 classes during any mod you have to leave the program, making one of my friends start mod 3 over and then 4 weeks into the mod, she was kicked out of the program. Mind you, the seniors about to graduate, many had failed multiple multiple classes. - Study guides were no longer being able to be given, because teachers were supposedly teaching to the test, when in my class, passing was very hard for many of us almost failing. - When we took a HESI, remediation was done online for up to 6 hours, and sometimes the computer didn't register your time, and remediation barely helped many people. -Multiple accounts, we were told they expected more people to fail from our class, that at the end we would graduate with a class of 10 the most, when we started with 26 -Only a few teachers really gave a crap about the students, and it was against their rules to really help us out as best as they wish they could. - Favoritism was definitely played a lot, exceptions weren't the same for each and every student. -Printing was limited to 10 pages a day. If more was printed, librarian often got very frustrated throwing a fit. I know many student have had trouble finding jobs or passing the state board test because they felt completely behind. I felt myself we were expected to know more that we never did or learned. I was thrown into clinicals in a situation that I was suppose to know and I had never done before. One teacher was very very rude when he talked. He often embarrassed me during clinicals, and very unprofessional. Like I said though, my experience was horrible. I wouldn't recommend anyone, but its your loss or gain."
