"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!"

"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."

"First let me start by saying that there are a few positive things about the school. We have had great teachers who actually teach and make their tests. But they end up getting fired or getting fed up with administration and DON plus administration decisions and quit. I finished my ADN at Fortis of Port st lucie and passed my Nclex, and oh boy. Please, do not go there. They lie to your face. A lot, and they get away with so much because, they are all in on the same page. All the people with power are friends and loyal to each other instead of being helpful and do the right thing. Mind you, tuition is over 44000 dollars. When they decide to kick a student out of their program, wasting that student time and money in the process it is also without warning or mercy. The DON is very powerful and not to be messed with. With a smile, she condescendingly constantly talk down to students. I had to always take things with a grain of salt. She told me i had a resting bitch face. And i am sure many other students had interesting encounters with her."

"Honestly when I first started, I thought things were fair and the people giving me warning about the DON and the teachers were just not completing assignments on time and not managing well. Come to find out I was wrong. I am a good student, mostly A’s, never C’s. Passed everything until I got to Capstone. I failed capstone and then I was told to stay out for 3 months. I never asked for a leave, never complained of being tired. On the Contrary i made myself available but I was given some excuse as far as why I needed to wait 3 months and then come back. Which isn’t guaranteed because the DON accept people she feels like accepting and help whoever she wants to help. I only failed capstone and you need to fail two classes to get kicked out. She does whatever she wants and she runs things in there so everyone follow what she wants. She gets spiteful with students who fight her unfair decisions. I did my best, studied hard, always passed everything."

"I don't recommend this school.They will do whatever it takes to get you in the door and get your money.Then they don't wanna answer your questions or if you question why something is happening you get told not to worry about it, it is not your concern.If other students weren't happy with it then they will say something but if only one student is unhappy or complaining then it must be the student."

"Potential students and prospective faculty should stay as far away as possible from this place. Tuition is ten times that of nearby nonprofit schools, a number of programs are on probation, science laboratory courses do not have laboratories, computers and copiers do not work, local employers openly state that they will not hire graduates, credits cannot be transferred to other institutions, there is very high turnover of teachers between resignations (often abrupt and unexpected) and waves of firings and administrators are largely inaccessible to students except to remove them from classes and sweat them for tuition payments while there is almost no contact between faculty and administrators, most of whom are rarely or never on the premises."

"They get you in there and are so supportive in the beginning but by the end of the program you will be begging for someone to care. I have found that they don't hold up their end of deal. They want you to pay on time, but they will keep your money until you beg for it."

"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...

"Quick FYI: I attended Fortis College - Cutler Bay- Although the process wasn't by any means short or quick, I had the support of the staff the entire time. If I had a question, someone was there to help, and any concerns I had in regards to financial aid or scheduling were addressed. I know it sounds weird to say it, but it felt like the staff were more than a little eager to help me; if I couldn't reach someone by phone, someone popped up to get me a staff member's email. I know it's a small school, but having teachers and admissions staff remember my face, name, and the fact that my mom was recovering from surgery made me feel like an actual person and not a walking ATM for this school. I really appreciate everything the school has done for me, and I can't recommend it enough."

"I Just started on January 8th 2018. In December when I enrolled I knew my financial aid was limited because of my other degrees, so I agreed to pay cash for the rest. On December 21st ,2018 they gave me an estimate of what my payment may be, because my credits had not been looked at yet. On January 5th we had orientation and got schedules along with my payment plan. Class started for me on the 9th which is when they expected my first payment. On the 12th I get pulled at and notified that if my payment of 1,491.56 is not paid by the 16th I can not attend class until its paid. Now I have attended a week of class but still can not do my homework or access any school sites until I pay. I applied for my FAFSA but the financial office says I can not use it because my husband and I do not file taxes together. I am really thinking about just saying the heck with this school. Because this is Bs."

"Stay away from this school. They will give you a nice song and dance to get you to apply but it's all smoke and mirrors in the end. By the time the true colors show it's too late to leave. You can't work and go to school at the same time like they say. In the orientation they boast about how flexible the program is but then they change your afternoon to mornings and put you in a class from 11-1, leaving you no room to work your job. Clinicals steal your entire day/week and your hands are tied and all you're allowed to do is push pills and wipe ass. During class hours administration is always on you to complete a survey for this and that and if you don't do it then that's grounds for expulsion. What I noticed is that the dean was most concerned about petty things such as uniforms and badges on few people when others wore clothing that was not approved. In the beginning it is all "come over here and we'll work with you and it'll be fun..." when you're in it was, "do this or you will be kicked out..." The dean is a joke. At face value she's like "I care and I want you to succeed." In reality she has no clue why she's meeting with students when it was her that set up the meeting. She's on the phone and talking to others through her door and preparing to leave for the day while meeting with students. (personal experience twice) They boast about a 100% graduation rate but in reality it's less than half. In my cohort we started with over 30 students and before capstone there were only a few left, 6-10. That goes back to another lie they push; small class sizes, plenty of one on one help from professors. More often than not, we were having to find extra chairs and tables to accommodate the high number of students. Not only were the rooms small and loud they were hot and stuffy from being overcrowded. Classroom walls are very thin and you are distracted by the class next door. There is no pharmacology professor so they employ anyone with a degree. The pharmacology class is a joke, all cohorts fail that class, the only people who pass that class are the ones who are repeating it from the term before. There was this horrible professor who would condescendingly reply with another question when a student asked a question or for clarification. During lecture you're taking notes on lecture and reading text and taking notes on text then during test time questions come from left field. You study hours on end and you know the particular system in and out and you're tested from what seems to be a whole different text thus making it easier to fail. Fortis College is a predatory school. Their credits are not recognized anywhere else so if you wanted to transfer you are out of luck, you just have to start over from the very beginning, you lost out on two years of your life and ended up with a huge bill. Stay away! The career counselor tells you only what you already know and tells you to visit this or that website and apply. When you see potential students touring the campus all you want to do is tell them to run, don't do it."
