Degree: Radiologist Assistant
Graduation Year: 2014

Before I started school with Fortis, they assured me that I would have excellent instructors, and that after completion of the program, they even had a department that would help with job assistance. I started the program. During the 11 months, they could not keep instructors at the school, instructores were late for classes, they even has some instructors teaching classes that were not qualified for that particular course of study. Communication between the students and the school was POOR. When there were changes to the course of study or when teachers were unavailable for the day for classes, they made no attempts to notify the students of these changes. Once the course was completed, the career services made NO attempts to help with job placement, as promised at the start of the program. Once the school gets your money, you see how important your success really is to them............Now, they will probably blow all of this off and lead you to believe I was probably a bad student to begin with, but just so you know.....I passed all of my exams, made the deans list twice and the presidents list once and graduated with a 4.0 grade point average. This is not the first time I have been in school, and NEVER have I had a complaint about any institution I attended until now.

Great experience. All,those students who complain about the Instructors and College should leave and go to another school. Its not the school who makes you,no,one meets you half way in life you have to go all the way ,

Degree: Nursing Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The clinicals were not appropriate for a senior RN students. They were more appropriate for LPN's. I also received no critical care experience which was unacceptable.

Degree: Heating, Air Conditioning, Ventilation and Refrigeration Maintenance Technology/Technician
Graduation Year: 2015

This school has a high turn over not just students. In 4-5 months all the HVAC teachers are gone. The ones they hire aren't teaching there reading from the book with no explanation.

Degree: Dental Assistant
Graduation Year: 2014

The Dental hygiene program at Fortis College in Atlanta needs to be investigated and shut down by CODA.There are so many unlawful and unfair acts being conducted against the students by the instructors and Program director Valarie.The key to succeeding in this program is to become Dr. C a** kisser.If not you are on the s**** list and your road to success will be very difficult or even short lived.She will create new rules along the way that will keep the shit listers from passing so that you can be kicked out.The instuctors have been threatened with their jobs to follow suit.There is clearly a power struggle amoung instructors, there is no consistency as it relates to the staff or the curriculum.The atmostsphere is very stressful, cutthroat and choatic. The instructors are very messy and would rather talk about you than help you. I could go on for days about this place!!! If you are looking for a program with an enviroment that is conducive to learning, this is not the place!!!!!!!!

Degree: Nursing Practice
Graduation Year: 2014

Fortis is like any other college. Those that are bitter and bitching obviously FAILED. Like any school you attend if you do not apply yourself you going to fail. Many Many students have passed are in successful careers and the Instructors they do care. The new Instructors, President, Dean etc they have are the best. They are well educated have Doctorate Degrees. They teach well. The students who do not make it are the ones who are degrading the school and faculty....and MOST OF YOU'LL WHO COMPLAIN ARE COMING FROM OTHER COLLEGES WHERE YOU HAVE FAILED BEFORE...SOME OVER AND OVER AND OVER.

This school tells you what ever you want to hear about the school just to get you to enroll!!!! They take your money...and alot of money that is!! they are currently in the process of being on probation because only a very small percent of students even pass!!

Degree: Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA)
Graduation Year: 2014

This school is not worth anybody's time that actually wants to go into nursing. They are money hungry and are always finding ways of kicking out students for stupid reasons. My experience there has been horrible and I would never recommend anyone to go there. It is a sad excuse as a school. Even when you drop out they want you to pay more money for whatever reason and they do not let you know what the reasons are for the payment that is due.

Degree: Licensed Practical Nurse
Graduation Year: 2014

I didn't hate it, but I didn't love it either. I have heard of worse complaints from other nursing schools in the area. With Fortis, I got what I came for. I'm a LPN. I plan to return this fall for the RN program because it is the quickest way to reach my goals. Some of my instructors were awesome and went above and beyond to ensure we understood the concepts. Some just lectured and assigned homework and told us to read the book if we had questions. There is going to be problems anywhere, there weren't many here that I couldn't ignore.

Degree: Medical Assistant
Graduation Year: 2014

I attended this school for the Medical Assisting Program. You could tell that the school was not up to date with their software or equipment, yet they charge 16,000 to be apart of the program. The instructors were not informative, they were never even in the classrooms or late, but they dock your grade for being 3 minutes late. The students were loud, played around, fought, they werent there to do work. It was like a middle school. I found my own externship, because the offices they were trying to send me to were just ghetto! I was very disappointed. I would not recommend this school or the staff to anyone.
