I have had an amazing experience with Fortis thus far. The teachers really care and are very helpful in providing the keys to success. The main change I would like to see with Fortis is the organization in the admin department. The disorganization in this department is the reasoning behind the rating of four stars. Books are not always given out on time, paperwork has been lost resulting in I traveling back and forth repeating paperwork, and phone calls to the school results in back and forth transferring at times.

Great school. The professors are caring and Admin are very helpful. They care about you and your education!
The nursing program is great. The Sim lab has a mannequin that is very good for real life situations. The mannequin sweats, shakes, have real heart sounds and bowel sounds. Everything that you need to learn for real life situations, can be learned on this mannequin. It is great. Clinicals are a little far because other nursing schools are at the hospitals that are closest. Kershaw Hospital in Camden, The VA hospital on Garner's Ferry, Morris Village (mental health), The Regional Medical Center in Orangeburg are places that I have done some of my clinical. By far, Orangeburg was a drive that I regretted but the clinical instructors were great.
