IF U TRULY WANT TO BETTER YOUR EDUCATION AND CAN IGNORE THE NEGATIVITY AND DISCOURAGING ATTITUDES OF OTHER STUDENTS THEN I ADVISE ANYONE NOT TO ENROLL IN ANY SCHOOL!!!make shure u have ur ducks in a row in ur personal life and you should be able to succceed. of course with life comes barriers and obstacles we must overcome.....in order to be successful!!! it is only the strong willed and determined that will make i thru!!!As far as fortis college columbus campus only...yea i totally give my approval rating to anyone that decides to go to this school.....keep a positive attitude study hard and u shall succeed. the instructors are knowledgable and are always willing to help out....admissions department was great.... i have not utilized career services so i cannot give my opinion regarding them.Class work is not easy but then again is not supposed to be is is supposed to make u study..... nursing administration is great. the d.o.n. is awesome. and all other ancillary staff has been excellent as well. i do not particularly care for one person on the nursing staff..but thats my OPINION there are alot of other students that do care for her and like her alot. the school is clean and neat as well.Fortis college columbus has definitely impressed me!! i read all the bad reviews and still choose to enroll and my outlook has been excellent!!! as well as my experience. im soooooo glad i did not let negativity deter me away from my goal!!!!To everyone out there that has had a terrible experience with ANY fortis college in ANY city other then COLUMBUS OHIO CAMPUS come to columbus ohio campus and u will be very pleased!!"

"I know that you have to take some bad with the good. But when your DON is Bad what can you do. Fortis in Norfolk has such a high turnover with teachers its not good for the students. Whats worse is a teacher who can't teach and doesn't care to teach. You know at most schools when you fail a course you have the opportunity to repeat, well at Fortis this is not the case. If you fail two classes you will be dismissed from the program. I knew a girl who was pregnant who didn't do well in Maternity or Peds and she was dismissed from the program. Thats only because the DON decided to make them two separate classes instead of one class with two parts like it was years before. The teachers for these classes were HORRIBLE! The President of the school will do nothing for you. Then they tell you that they are accredited by the NLNAC. They are not accredited by them at all. I'm just glad I made it through with the help of the teachers that left the school but still took time because they cared about helping me learn."

"I agree with J.. I just recently started Fortis College and i read all the "bad" reveiws on this website and still chose to enroll. I am quite impressed! You get out what you put in and so fer i put in 100% of effort this first semester and got out STRAIGHT A'S. Now grant it there is one instructor that i dont quite understand or like.... but this instructor is a great instructor...and besides im not there to like anybody..im there the get a quality education and that it what i have been getting thus far...i did not get any stpend money back but that was because a couple things i had to do in order to start class(i.e. immunizations) i could not afford so i utilized their voucher program and had the services charged to my account. But as of yet i have had no real gripe about this college. I am only speaking of my experience with fortis collge-columbus ohio campus. i have not utilized career services so i cannot speak on them but the couple times i did talk to them they seemed to be ready and willing to ASSIST students as much as they can. admission was great.... if you do decide to go to fortis college columbus ohio campus please do not let all the negativity deter you.... go to school and put your all into it focus on your studies and be serious and i guarantee you will be quite pleased with this school. I sure am. im so glad i came to this school. the nursing program i am in is accelerated..... but i am a fast learner and so far has had no problems with that either."
