Fortis College Reviews - Certificate in
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.
They feed you a lot of good details stating how flexible they are. I'm a single mom I was able to push through the 1st semester but I finally had to drop the program due to work.They charged me $5,000 for leaving early which is ridiculous when I ask for a break down of all these charges they never sent one but continue to harass me for it I wish I never went.
I had the worst experience with this school the Instructors were not knowledgeable Always fights , worst externship sites , when applying for jobs you need 2 to 3 years of experience in the clinical area which we do not have so that means no job.not a good look.now I have unnecessary loans.
DON'T GO TO THIS SCHOOL!!!They all about money. Teachers don't know the material they're teaching. They talk and teach you like your in high school. Teachers always leaving their room for minutes at a time when they suppose to be teaching. They have the same three teachers teaching three different subjects. Teachers only been in there field for 5 years and teaching classes. You credits DO NOT transfer to any another colleges. Your better off going to a four or a two year college. I would not recommend this college to anyone else.
DONT GO HERE THEIR ALL ABOUT THEIR MONEY I OWE 15 grant on loans and they give you shiti internship places to go to .. I haven't had a job on what I went to school for since 2012 !!! And when I called to get copies of my transcript and diploma they said they don't have it that it's at a warehouse ... smh for billing and coding everyone wants 2/3 years of exp and they won't tell you that! Go look ar jobs on line you will see they all want experience ! Something you don't have when you get out and the internships you get sent too you end up being a front desk!! Smh
DO NOT I repeat DO NOT go to this school. This school is all about collecting money. I studied in the welding program. The lack of welding equipment and tools is unreal. Went a whole month without any metal to practice welding with. The teachers fighting in front of students. Teachers showing up to class completely drunk to the point where he can barely articulate. Must I go on? Stay far far far far far away from this school or you will regret it!!!
I'm so happy to say I'm no longer a student at the For your Money college, this school is a TERRIBLE place to invest your time and money, people walk off the street with no prior teaching experience and become a full time teacher on your dollars, are teacher constantly told use to Google are questions because she didn't know the answer because she never read the book that she was teaching from, I had teachers that would become angry if you asked questions period, I was told by serval faculty members that this is a self learning environment and you can teach yourself more than I can would laugh and walk away as if my time, future and money was a joke. The Dean of nursing is a narcissist that is just as less resourceful when you have a issue with your educational rights, don't go here with any expectations of passing the NCLEX unless you have outside help go check out the turn over rate for there instructors and passing rates for NCLEX I surely wish I knew these small helpful tips before I went, I had no previous background in nursing but always had a passion for caring for others and decided to attend that CIRCUS act. They have no working lab equipment, nor practical stimulation equipment that they promised when you do your walk through, the teacher didn't believe we needed to wear gloves during needle sticks and told us to do as we pleased during lab time, she would lie about students to other faculty members so they would give those students a hard time as well, they applied for sometime of grant which was a COG grant and later I found out this was illegal because I wasn't a associate degree student but they got the money, I graduated and was on the Dean's list for 3 terms and still had to take the NCLEX 2 times before I passed it, now that I'm working after only applying at 6 different facilities because not a lot of places hire graduates from Cincinnati Fortis because of there reputation of being incompatent, lacking in qualified skills, and there inability to train their students at the appropriate nursing entry level. Last but not to say the least when we went for our clinicals the sites would not even allow for us to do patient care because what was said was that a past instructors told one of there on staff nurses that we had experience with needle sticks and insulin injections and when several students where ask by the Director of Nursing before being allowed to perform the procedure what was the actual process of the procedure no one knew the correct degree of inserting the needle the Director told the instructor we can always observe but would not be allowed to perform the procedure because of the patient risk factors, the same instructor told us in the next class she forgot to show us what to do and if we had read the book the procedure some student said yes so she tried to encourage us to do it on each other, with no one willing to do it she became upset and said if you don't do it here we will not be allowed to do it at the facility!!
