Fortis College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (188)
I was a graduate of Fortis College. Something that I was proud to say until recently. I was also an employee. Something else I was was proud to say. I worked hard to get where I was only to have it taken away at the whim of upper management. These people do not personally care about you as they advertise as an employee I know. You are just a student. Upper management could care less if you succeed. They just want you to enroll. Believe me that is all the admissions team cares about. Once your there your success is not something that the Mobile, Alabama campus cares about. They just want you to stay so that they can get the tuition fee that each student earns them. Part of my job was to get students who had dropped out to return. It didn't matter how I got them there just do it. If a student did not show up Ikr quit then it was my fault. By the way I was a department chair person. I know that if the current Dean of education did not like you, you were a problem for her and you must go. Please save yourself the headache enroll in a traditional college, at least they do not pretend to care about your success. You can become a pharmacy tech dental assistant medical assistant or any of the other career choices offered at Fortis College WITHOUT going to school. You can receive on job training. In most states you can contact a board or certification exam and get your licenses. Take my advise there is no reason to attend this school. It is a horrible choice. I should know I have had the experience from both sides of the table.
Fortis is a joke,they are quick to take your money but after that you are just a number.No one can answer a question for you in management, they will write down a lot of info but it goes no where.Instructors for the most part have no education experience and just read power point to you.Hello you can read on your own.A don't expect to go to dean or assistant dean you will get no help from them.Save your money be patient and get into a state college and save your self the headaches and expense.Trust me on this.
This school does not care about the student body at all! There only concern is money! They are disorganized, tell you one thing and do something different. They have instructors teaching classes that have no experience in the specialty, they will not return your calls or emails. The previous graduating class had to hire an attorney!!! I can not even begin to tell you the aggravation and distress this school has caused!!! Please, please, please do not waste your time and money at this sham of a school. It has been torture to watch my husband suffer through this horrible experience.
Very wonderful staff! As a mother of a young child I was enrolled in evening classes, I liked not having class on friday and I learned so much. I liked all my instructors and the Head of Surgical Depaetment Ms. C. is great! Mr. S. is #1!
I am an ASN graduate of the last Rets class after Fortis College took over the Centerville school in Ohio. After 5 yrs I decided to go back to school for my BSN I called 4 times in 2 weeks the registrar to have transcripts sent no replies. Unprofessional and disappointing my class had a 97% pass rate on NcLEX that helped get them out of academic accreditation trouble. I have already enrolled at a school for my BSN but I can't get into the school without official transcripts being sent. I have limited time and I don't reside in Ohio anymore. The website doesn't not allow me to take care of this item I have to speak with the registrar office who never answer the phone or their voicemails. I am have my family drive 45 mins to the school so I can further my education.
This is the worst school ever. hard to get a job when you graduated st school ever. they don't care about the students, just your money. they are not accredited even though they said they were. they are four times more expensive thatn the other school in the area. skip it at all course. there is an administrator there called ms. folkers or something like that and she is a true sadist. a very sick individual.never, never waste your moeny here. THEY ARE NOT ACCREDITED!!!!!!!!! nobody will hire you!!!!!! not other school will take their credits!!!!!!!
Please do not waste your time attending this school. They are not about education but solely money. A complete disappointment.
Fortis College Cutler Bay is a very welcoming school. The staff is extremely helpful and are about the students. I am currently a nursing student. The professors are willing to meet with you whenever you need help. The school offers night time classes which is extremely convenient for those who work. You are able to finish within two years.
I DID MY STUDIES AT FORTIS COLLEGE TO BECOME A CERTIFIED PHARMACY TECHNICIAN AND IT TOOK ONLY NINE MONTHS. THE SCHOOL IS VERY NICE AND THE HANDS ON TRAINING IS GREAT BECAUSE YOU FEEL LIKE YOUR ACTUALLY IN THE WORK PLACE BECAUSE OF HOW THE PHARMACY LAB IS SET UP. THE PROFESSORS ARE EXCELLENT AND I LEARNED A LOT FROM THEM AND MY EXPERIENCE AT THE SCHOOL WAS AWESOME. I WOULD RECOMMEND MY FRIENDS OR STRANGERS TO THE SCHOOL. THE WHOLE STAFF IS NICE AND I ENJOYED IT AND AT THE SAME TIME I MADE NEW FRIENDS.
I truly believe my success at passing the NCLEX, for the first time and with only 75 questions, is due to the Kaplan review and resources provided. Kaplan is created based on the NCLEX and is extremely similar to the style of questions and how the questions are worded. I highly suggest continuing with Kaplan! Also, Roy Hamlin is a great resource. He takes his personal time out of his day and helps students succeed and creates an unique plan for each individual person. If you go to him for help, he goes above and beyond his duties. Through out my time at Fortis I enjoyed the smaller classroom experience and the professors that truly connected with the students and provided great resources. The professors that truly helped me through my time, showed they cared, and had an understanding of the struggles students go through, as well as providing support and inspiration. the professor that stuck with me and touched my heart are Professor Cruz, Aroacha, and Dozier. These professors truly have an enormous amount of knowledge and their deliverance technique is stupendous.
