I love Fortis College, I really learned a lot, i returning for my Associates Degree in Healthcare Management. I had some great instructors who taught and made sure that I was confident and ready for the real world. Excellent Career Development Staff that also go beyond the call of duty.
This school is like two monkeys playing football. No one knows what they are doing. Always arguing over lack of supplies. Instructors berating students. The teachers expect us as students to be professional yet they have no clue what that word means. Save your money NEVER ATTEND FORTIS COLLEGE IT'S A WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY.
I loved my courses and the faculty at Fortis College were well qualified and caring. The program and curriculum were structured for working adults. I was able to earn my degree while working full-time with a family. I would recommend Fortis to anyone wishing to advance their skills or move into a new career. The best feature about being a Fortis graduate is Career Placement and advisors who work hard to help you to be career-ready!
STUDENTS BEWARE!!! they lie to you up front... these credits DO NOT TRANSFER ANYWHERE!!! they tell you they do.... lied to! We started with over 30 students in health assessment (NEW TEACHER!!). When only 15 got to pharmacology, (NEW TEACHER AGAIN!!!) only 4 passed the class... the teachers do not write their tests.... the administration do... HELLO how can you teach when the teacher doesn't know what is on the test..... THEY TELL you that you can repeat the class.... OH>. and you will pay to retake it also!!! BIG BUCKS. I waisted $25,000 (student loans) on nothing... left after pharm... complete waist of time. not only do I not have a degree but I will have to pay for this bad school who just wants your money... they don't care about teaching the student how to be a good nurse... or how to help you understand information... don't waste your time in the Salt Lake City campus... ITS A JOKE!!!
Horrible curriculum. 12 weeks of rushed information. RRE class is not preparing you for registry exam...you dont review you never open a book in this class to review all you do is take random test and pass 4 out of 12 whole class failing. Dont go here
I felt at the time I attended received a lot of support from staff. I completed Medical Assistant and Medical Billing & Coding program with diploma. Also completed Associate Degree in Applied Science in Medical Business and Clinical Specialist. Problem is want to attend school for nursing and none of my nursing classes from Fortis transfer over. So I have to start all over do I can pursue my dream to become a nurse. It is upsetting after all the hard work I put in school. Now stuck with a 40k loan and only making close to minimum wage right now.
STAY AWAY FROM FORTIS!!! On April 2018 they withdrew me from my program i was supposed to graduate on July 2018 they stated that I had not done any work for over 2 weeks which is not true, when i tried reaching out to them to see what can be done they stated nothing, i would have to go through the admission process again, which I wish i was so close to graduating and i agreed to it, a week later they never answered my email, when i call they give me the run around. its 7/31/2018 and i had to enroll in another school in order to finish and my credits from fortis the majority where not transferable.
If I could do it all over again I would not have chosen Fortis. Felt like I had to do the classes on my own. Was a good student and missed one class in my final term by one point. I appealed three times and was blown off. Then recently I get a letter from a collector saying they were going to garnish my wages over 800$! I later found out after I left Fortis billed me and never told me instead quietly sold it to collections. My advice;stay away from Fortis and for all you folks that got screwed like me-get a lawyer.
My wife attending Fortis College in Orange Park. After graduating and passing the NCLEX for RN, she is now finding it difficult to find a job. Several places have told her they would not hire her because Fortis did not have accreditation. She was led to believe they were while attending.
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 .
