College Junior

Online Courses: I do not take online courses here. I take classes on campus in an actual classroom.

5 College Junior

Career Services: We have a great team here that helps place you out for externship. After that most of the extern sites offer you a job so we have very high job placement after graduation.

5 College Junior

Student Body: Very diverse population of students here. We range from poor to rich, gay and straight, and religious. Everyone is very accepting and act as a big family.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: The computers are a little older so some of them dont have the up to date programs you need. We could use more computers for the amount of students we have but it is never a problem. Great wireless access.

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: We have a great library here with an instructor there at all times if you need help with something or you need proof reading. They offer us a ton of online resources such a journals and special sites just for us along with computers to access them from.

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I was able to go to school during the days and work after school. Both were flexible with my schedule.

5 College Junior

Facilities: This campus offers a mentor program. Students are selected by instructors that they feel excel in school and are helpful to other students. Other students who are not in the mentor program can go to the students who are and ask for help in alot of different areas such as tutoring, home life, relationships, or proof reading thier papers.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The financial aid advisor is great and helps you through the entire process so you can get the most money possible to help you out. The school itself is a little pricy if you dont have much help.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: I like that it is a short program and I can have my degree in a year and a half. The workload is alot but I learn so much from all of it and it isnt too much that I cant handle it. The curriculum is great and really teaches us what we will need to know for out in the field. We have great hands-on practice and one-on-one time with our instructors.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: Our instructors are wonderful and teach us so much. The class regisration process is quick and simple and someone is always there to help if you need them. All of our graduates go out on an internship and most of them get offered a job right from that.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have learned so much information in such a short amount of time! The instructors truely care about your success and help you in any way they can. All of the students come together and interact with each other like a big family and encourage each other.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: Fortis has a very hands on curriculum with a lot of hands on experience. The teachers have years of familiarity with their respective fields of practice, ie; geriatrics, pediatrics, cardiac. They are very knowledgeable and wrong to share their experience. The classes will prepare you to take your NCLEX-PN. Which is the most important thing.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: Classes are very tough, due to the constricted schedule. However if you put in the work you will be successful, and the pay off is a great job doing something you love. Dental assistant, Medical assisstant, LPN, or Massage Therapy. Its a good progrem, and they are intent on helping you to succeed.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: Fortis LPN Program – The LPN program at Fortis has its ups and downs. The downs, the classes can get frustrating, and the workload is quite a lot. There are times that you will be teaching yourself. The ups; clinicals start four months in, so you get a ton of real world experience. The classes are designed to make sure you pass the NCLEX-PN exam for licensure. They have a 100% boards pass rate. Also with all the clinical experience, you very often have job offers before you even leave the program. Over all the aggravation is worth the pay out at the end.

5 College Senior

Campus Resources: Most of our course work is completed on line. We have virtual clinical studies. On line practice Hesi exams.

5 College Senior

Career Services: 95% Employed Rate – My school has a 100% licensing rate. Every student who has completed the program has passed their state boards, and many are offered jobs before they have graduated. The carrer services division is very helpful in networking, and helping you to obtain a career after graduation.

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I think that the tuition is a little exorbatant, but the financial aide office does provide a lot of information on aide. They give you a detailed print out on what your money is going toward, how the money is paid out, and loan details. Over all it is a very good experience.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I Reccomend Fortis Institute – The academics offered at my school are limited but that's okay because they do a great job with the academics that they offer. The teachers that I have met so far are very nice and willing to do whatever it takes to help you. I have a huge workload but that is okay because my program is only 2 years and I have a lot I need to know crammed into 2 years. All in all, it is a pretty great program.

5 College Senior

Campus Resources: Everybody is very nice. When I decided that i was interested the people here made sure that it was what i wanted and got me on the right track. even helped me find an apartment in the area that i could afford.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: Not Enough – I feel our school needs more computer labs, and a bigger library.
