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.

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.

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.
