I was just accepted into the LPN program at Fortis College in Columbus, OH. After researching on here I have found some information that is quite concerning.
First can anyone tell me if this school is Nationally or Regionally accredited?
What is the difference between these two accredidations?
I want to hear from anyone who has information on this school. I have talked to a few people who went through their program, and claimed they loved it, and they all have jobs. Although, on the other hand, I hear alot of negitivity towards this school. When I went on the tour I liked what I saw, and my Admin. Representative was very organized and professional. So I am trying to figure out if they are just pulling the wool over my eyes?
I have heard that noone will hire you if they find out that you graduated from this school, but have also been told (from someone who hires employees at a well known hospital) that as long as you have your liscense places dont care what school you went to. I am left feeling confused, because I always get contradicting information.
I am aware that this school is pricey but that isn't my concern right now. I am just very interested in getting my degree and starting my career asap. I have done the math and if you add up 4 years tuition, and add the price of books to that you are walking away with almost the same cost.
Also, Bohecker (now Fortis) was a horrible school... BUT Fortis is not Bohecker. Fortis bought the building that Bohecker was in. They are two different schools
. Bohecker did lose their accreditation to my knowledge. (sorry but some people have confusion on this)
With this being said, I dont want anyone to tell me about the price being too high, or about how a 4 year school would be better (been there done that).
I only want to know any good or bad information anyone has about this school. And preferably if I could get feedback from students who have attended this school already that would be great!!
** Oh, and only information about the Westerville, Ohio campus please! **
Thanks to anyone who reads this and posts!!
