Making a decision to apply to a nursing program is indeed a critical one. The major is very challenging and unfortunately not everyone will be successful. I encourage you to visit the school with a set of unbias eyes. The visit could include an opportunity for you to potentially meet with current students so you receive a balance review.
Best of luck on your journey towards being a nurse.

Thank you very much for this dialogue.....nursing is probably one of the most challenging major with so much that must be learned in a very short period of time. You are absolutely accurate in your assessment that success requires significant time studying and ownership of your own learning. Faculty should be there to coach and mentor you along the learning journey. If there are specific challenges please share them with your faculty, Dean, and as needed Campus President. The eventual reward of becoming a nurse will make the journey well worth the effort required.
As the Vice President of Education, I'd like to thank you for sharing your perspective on what constitutes a legitimate school. It would be helpful to have more information regarding whether or not you actually attended this school and if so, what campus and program you were in so we can explore what seems to you as unqualified faculty and the coursework you reference?
As an accredited institution we have standards regarding faculty credentials. In addition, unlike other state accredited schools that you reference, we have accountability to various agencies on our students retention, employment and licensure. As a result, you'll find our programs are designed with the relevancy to prepare our graduates for success in the career field.
Also, the decision regarding transferability of credits is always at the discretion of the receiving school (or where you may transfer to) so there may be variability in the acceptance of credit.
Once again, I'd invite you to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can learn more about the context of your perceptions and understand your vague generalizations. I look forward to visiting with you soon and thanks in advance for helping us improve.
Would you please contact me at email@example.com
I did not get a notice you had responded. I apology for the delay

I am very concerned that your experience at Fortis College did not meet your expectations. If you are willing I would like to visit with you regarding your experience as our goal as revealed in other posting on this site is to provide an outstanding educational experience.

Vice President of Nursing
Thank you very much for taking time to post your experience with Fortis College. Your efforts to share about your learning journey is very much appreciated. Would you mind sharing which Fortis you attended? I would like to share the good news with the campus.
Best of Luck to you in your future nursing endeavors!

I'm sorry to hear about the experience as it is certainly not reflective of the quality of education we provide to our students. As the Vice President of Education, I'd like to thank you for bringing this to our attention so we may examine this more carefully and follow up appropriately.
I also wanted to follow up on two additional areas:
- First, FORTIS College Montgomery is institutionally accredited by the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES). This is a recognized accrediting agency that requires certain levels of performance in order to make sure students are learning, receiving the right support, graduating and finding jobs in their field of study.
- Second, the decision regarding transferability of credits is always at the discretion of the receiving school (or where you may transfer to) so there may be variability in the acceptance of credit.
In relation to the other comment about challenges in finding employment, I'd invite your daughter to reach back out to the career services department at the college so we can explore getting her career on track. I would appreciate the opportunity to discuss either of these situations further in order for us to ensure a quality experience. Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I look forward to visiting with you.
