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 :)
Fortis College in Pensacola gave me the opportunity to discover what I was off capable of achieving. This college not only provided me with the knowledge that I needed to become a professional nurse but also gave a sense of being involved in a school in which the staff truly cares about your success. Instructors knew my name and would reach out to me if I was struggling. I have now graduated with my Master's Degree and I am able to provide for my family without worrying about the next paycheck. None of this would have been accomplished without the support and knowledge afforded to me from the staff at Fortis College in Pensacola. If you are thinking about attending a college and want to feel like you are more than just a number than you are looking in the right place.
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!
It was great experience. I enjoyed the students, they have a great community and everyone always helped each other. The teachers pushed you to excel and gave all the resources to do so. The experience made me WANT to come to class. There was never Not a minute that we weren'g learning something new.
I graduated from the Practical nursing program at Fortis (Port Saint Lucie) this year. The Professors were dedicated to the success of the students and helped me to achieve my goals. There were many changes through the year, for the better. Ultimately my experience was a good one, because I worked hard to make it that way. I graduated Valedictorian and am proud of my achievements.
I went into the dental assisting program not knowing anything dental related but left LOVING it and feeling completely confident. I was immediately hired at my intern sight following completion of my program at Fortis and am currently still employed! Teachers were always willing to go above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and confident in our abilities to follow through with procedures and patient care. The entire facility was always professional and helpful.
Going back to school at 44 was a big decision for me and my family. I began the Practical nursing program, and through hard work and support from family, Fortis professors and staff I was able to experience and accomplish my goals. "I graduated Valedictorian! I showed myself and my children, nothing is out of reach!"
Great environment! The professors are very knowledgeable on the subjects and want you to succeed. I was well prepared for externship. 10/10 would recommend to a friend. The environment is very family like and every one is welcome at forts institute......
This place is terrible. We barely do anything in class and the teachers do not care if youre getting a proper education. Its all about getting your money. They have the audacity to make you pay for certifications AFTER youve spent 18k on an absolutely pitiful excuse for an education. Avoid this school at all costs.
