Degree: Registered Nursing/Registered Nurse
Graduation Year: 2016

Attending the Nashville Campus for RN school was the worst decision I have ever made. The tuition is over priced, the education is poor, the staff lacks passion, and each day you wake up wondering if your instructor will show up for your class. I truly never felt as if my success was a priority to the majority of my instructors. Even after graduating, when I thought I would feel some relief, they have delayed me with taking the Nclex exam by failing to inform me in a timely manner that my application had gone missing. I would not recommend this school to anyone, let alone a friend.

This school is a complete scam the teachers SLEEP while students gossip wasting time HVAC isn't a trade that can be taught in a classroom it is a hands on trade and fortis DOESN'T offer that they will tell you everything you want to hear right up until you sign your name and put yourself in the hole for 22k I attended class everyday along with several other and we all left with certificates I know absolutely nothing about HVAC all I know is I have to pay back 22k

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.

Degree: Radiology Technician
Graduation Year: 2017

This school is a joke! Constantly had teachers leaving in the middle of terms. We were treated as if we were in a military school having to dye our hair and cut it all the time. Grading was very inconsistent and unfairly! No issues were ever resolved. It was overall a nightmare. I will never attend anything else at Fortis Institute!

Graduation Year: 2016

This 2 year college program is a joke! We had teachers that were never here and teachers who were not knowledgeable of material,but when we got to capstone we are expected to know information in a week that we were never thought and are in danger of not being able to go to cliniclas because of unenthusiastic teachers. Instilling new rules on older students that were heavily affected by one teacher which is not fair. We couldn't mounted her attendance so why are we being held accountable for something we never had. I was extremely vocal at the time this was going on and nothing was done instead I was told to keep quiet about my frustrations. I feel like this school owes me! I'm just so unhappy here. This tuition is to high to not be confident in your school,teachers, and administrators. This school needs to audited from top to bottom. Unsatisfied! Would NEVER refer a single soul here as long as I live. Thinking about possible suing and going to the news to bring the issues to the forefront that are swept under the rug!

Degree: Sterile Processing Technology/Technician
Graduation Year: 2016

Ok so here it is. This school is a joke. They have new teachers left and right so you never know what you are going to get. If you want the SPT program, don't bother, THERE ARE NO TEACHERS HERE THAT KNOW SPT. All the teachers they have teaching SPT are actually scrub techs. Yeah scrub techs that don't know how to do central sterile so they cant teach you the hands on parts. I could show the same surgical instrument to three different teachers and get three different answers. I do not know what their criteria is for hiring these people but it seems to me like they take a van to a near by hospital and tell people to hop in if they want to make 100 bucks. As nice as these people are, their being nice does not do any one any favors. I went for an education and left with student loans. I could have bought the book and studied this at home.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

This school is very unprofessional. They do not care about the success of students I spent 35,0000 had 5 months left and then I was dismissed from the program . Due to 3 course failures I failed with a 76.6 %. I was always at the school studying I had a 3.0 when I left. So it not like I wasn't studying they don't prepare students for HESI. Im begging you all save your money and do not attend this college. No my credits won't even transfer to a state college. I attended the psl campus in Forida

Degree: Practical Nursing, Vocational Nursing and Nursing Assistants, Other
Graduation Year: 2014

I spent 30,000 on a school whose credits did not transfer. My end goal was to become an RN. I have yet to find a school that will accept Fortis Credits so I can continue to my RN degree. I was promised by many staff that their credits were transferable. I had a 3.5 GPA so by no means am I a lazy student trying to make excuses. I am upset I wasted so much money on a degree that won't transfer. I did pass my state board exams on the first attempt. I will say the practice nclex 50 a day were well worth it.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

This school is very unprofessional, they do not return phone calls. They lose paperwork and the best part is they change exams with no knowledge to the staff. The program is going down hill fast, for your own sake please look at your other options before calling Fortis.

Degree: Nursing Education
Graduation Year: 2016

If I would of known what I know now about this school I would never have came here. Not only is this school so unprofessional but they treat you like you are a child and talk to you like your an idiot. Not only that but the instructors are also rude and the DON talks down to you and makes you feel like your worthless. This is absolutely the worst school!!! They are so unorganized they tell you things last minute and then punish you for their mistakes it seems that instead of them wanting you to succeed their out to make you fail!! There is no sympathy and if you have children and work then don't waste your time because apparently now if you miss more than 24 hours in clinical you get kicked out of the program no questions asked!!!! Save your money and time.
