Has anyone heard anything about Fortis College, I'm looking into nursing programs, and just trying to look at all my options.
Where are you looking to go to school? If it is in or around Indianapolis, you have many options. Are you seeking a LPN or RN degree? If it is a RN degree, are you seeking an ASN or BSN? The best place to start is the Indiana State Board of Nursing. You will have to look into each program and deciede what is best for you. The links below are all the nursing programs approved by the BON here in Indiana.

There are many things to consider when picking a school. If you plan on furthering your education make sure you pick a school where your credits will transfer out. Another BIG thing to consider is the schools accreditation because it will make a difference where you can work after obtaining your degree here in Indiana. Look for a school that currently has or seeking NLNAC or CCNE accreditation. Ask a million questions if you need to. Last but not least is the cost of attendance. There are LPN & RN programs out there that the cost of attendance can range from $8000-$50,000. There are so many things to consider. Unfortunately, I can not answer any questions concerning Fortis for you. I know nothing about that particular school. Nursing school is not easy, but I hope this helps and I am sure many more people will come along and add more info for you. Congrats on considering a career in nursing. I wish you all the best.
