Student & Graduate Reviews (197)
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.
I have been enrolled at Fortis College for two years; I am now at the end of the program. I used to work in the nursing field back home, but when I came here, in this Big Country where the language is different, the laws are strict, and multiple cultures are interacting, I realized that I had to go back to School in order to be able to adapt and continue practicing my Profession. I was looking for a School that could help me carry out my goals and I found Fortis College that is located at 3 minutes from my house. So far, I can say that this School fit my needs. Not only it implements a tough program which can prepare the students for a successful career, but the people who compose the staff are also very nice and responsible. I have wonderful experiences with them, especially Dr. Lisa Evoy (the Dean of Nursing). While I am at the school as student, I am also a mother of two small kids and I work full time (40 hours, five days a week). I am so busy that I feel overwhelmed sometimes and asking if I will survivre; however, the Dean is always there to encourage me to go foward, she always shows understanding when I go talk to her. She is very supportive and she often tries her best to satisfy student requests. I recommend Fortis College, my School, to anyone who wants to become a professional in the nursing field.
