"This program was life-changing. The teachers are so kind, and genuinely care about you and your future and are willing to help with whatever they can. The classes progress as a normal rate so it's easy to follow, and I made many friendships here :)"

"I decided to go back to school so that I could help my family when my husband decided to retire from active duty. I began the medical assistant program in 2017 and was immediately blown away by the caring staff and amazing teachers. They truly care about their students. The programs are strict with dress code, behavior and attendance. But it is all beneficial for the students! I graduated in May 2018, began work with the local hospital as PRN staff in June, and began the Fortis R.N. program in July. Fortis at Pensacola now has their ACEN accreditation!! I am blessed to have found this school. It has changed my life!"

"Fortis Institute - Pensacola has been a surprising blessing in my life. I decided to go back to school and learn a trade that would help my family when my husband decided to retire from active duty. I entered the medical assistance program and was immediately embraced by the teachers. They are strict with rules and attendance, dress code and behavior. But they definitely care about their students and their success. They are willing to stay after class, help with extra skills, and give extra instruction when it is needed. I graduated the medical assistant program in May 2018, was hired by the local hospital as PRN staff in June 2018, and immediately applied for the nursing program. I am now in my second term in the nursing program and am being challenged weekly to stretch my mind, reach outside my comfort zone and work hard to achieve what I want. The staff on the nursing side of the school is amazing! Professors offer tutoring, answer all the questions we have, and give plenty of their own time to make sure we succeed. Nursing is now ACEN accredited at Fortis - Pensacola! I am thrilled I found this place!"

"Overall I loved my classes and the actual teachers. Once you're approaching graduation the school's career services dept. is suppose to help you find a job, but if you do not have a car or speak Spanish you're on your own. Good luck and learn Spanish"

"The Medical Assistant program was not what I was looking for so I was a little disappointed but I continued through it. I felt I did learn things in my field of work and was given ideas on had to proceed with my career. The teachers and affiliates of the school were very good at answer questions, finding an answer or directing you to someone who can answer the question. I would have like more lab experience to learn better. There could be a better explanation on how the holidays and days missed work but overall the education was great."

"I WILL NOT RECOMMEND NO ONE TO THIS SCHOOL! I WILL NOT RECOMMEND NO ONE TO THIS SCHOOL!I WILL NOT RECOMMEND NO ONE TO THIS SCHOOL! I WILL NOT RECOMMEND NO ONE TO THIS SCHOOL! WILL NOT RECOMMEND NO ONE TO THIS SCHOOL! I WILL NOT RECOMMEND NO ONE TO THIS SCHOOL! The people that are in charge of human resources are NOT helping(W. and G.). I finish school in march and I still don't have a job and i'm bilingual. This school is so unorganized and they dont work with you at all. None of the people that work there are doing there job right. They don't care about the night classes at all. I wish I could of done more research on the school before I attended."

"I would never recommend going to such an unprofessional school. While some of the instructors are great others let ego get in the way and ARE VERY UNETHICAL AND UNPROFESSIONAL. I ONLY NEEDED ONE CLASS. BCLS AND TODAY WAS THE START OF MY LAST MODULE BUT BECAUSE AN INSTRUCTOR GOT HER FEELINGS HURT BY A COMMENT I MADE I WAS EXPELLED FROM SCHOOL DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY. 18 MONTHS FOR NOTHING!"

"I really HATE this school. Hate is a strong word i understand but this school I HATE!!.consistently bother you to pay there money on time. They will pull you out of class for your payments. If you dont pay you get suspended. There was a few times i went to talk to the dean and she asked me what i am doing out of class and that i shouldnt be out of class that i am missing "important" information. But then again. They pull you out of class for your payments. The dean sucks. She has like this voice that sweet but once you do something not professional. Then this man voice comes out. And wants to talk about professionalism. None of there people at this school have professionalism"

"I greatly benefitted from the education and training provided by Fortis Institute and I would recommend it to my family and friends. My Admissions Representative was very caring and sensitive to my needs and goals. I was assisted with changing my life for the better. Career Services did a fantastic job by providing me with placement assistance! Shawana S. 04/28/2015"
