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.

At Fortis, there is not much to participate in. There is no athletic facility, student center, or campus aesthetics. The only place to go is class and the library. The library only has 16 computers for the whole school. Sometimes there is a lot of students wanting to use the computer at the same time and there is a wait for computers. There is the ANA (American Nursing Association) that you can sign up to be a part of. Fortis College shares a building with other business'. There are four floors in this building. Classes for Fortis are on I think that they are going to need a bigger campus soon.
The student body is very diverse. You have lots of different cultures and ethnicities here. Everyone is friendly towards each other and really wishes everyone well. Everyone's program is color coded with different color uniforms. Nursing-dark blue, Medical Assisting-light blue etc. So everyone knows what program you are a part of and everyone is very supportive of each other
