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!!
