Nursing and Healthcare Programs in Pensacola

FORTIS Institute is a healthcare school in Pensacola, Florida. Unlike schools that only offer training in one narrow field, FORTIS offers programs in several different healthcare fields, including nursing, medical assisting, dental assisting, massage therapy, and medical office administration. The FORTIS Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN) helps prepare students for a career as a registered nurse. The program includes classroom, clinical, and laboratory training. After completing the program, students may be eligible to take the NCLEX-RN licensing examination and eventually seek entry-level employment.

FORTIS also offers training in the areas of medical and dental assisting, as well as medical office administration. The medical programs provide the clinical and administrative skills necessary to work in a variety of healthcare settings, including doctor’s offices, clinics, and hospitals. The dental assisting program provides the training to work chairside with a dentist as a dental assistant.

Another option is the FORTIS massage therapy training program. Students receive training in a variety of massage techniques and are prepared to take the national certification exam. Massage therapists find work in several different settings, including medical offices, spas, cruise ships, hotels, and salons, or they can look to open their own massage business as a self-employed masseuse. Massage therapy can be a great part-time or full-time career choice.

Other Programs

If you aren’t looking for healthcare and medical programs in Pensacola but are looking for a career change, FORTIS Institute offers programs in HVAC-R (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration) and cosmetology.

Florida isn’t known as the Sunshine State for nothing: it gets hot here! That means that there is a demand for HVAC technicians who can keep residential and commercial systems running smoothly. These environmental systems have become more complex over the years, so there is a growing need for well-trained professionals who can install, maintain, and repair systems quickly and efficiently.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics states that job opportunities in this field are growing much faster than average over the next decade, but also notes that employers are often looking for technicians who have completed a formal training program. FORTIS offers a diploma in HVAC & Refrigeration that can help prepare you for an entry-level job in this exciting and growing industry.

Another growing industry is cosmetology. No matter what the economy, there are always people who want to improve their appearance, and they rely on skilled cosmetologists for hair and skin care services. Our cosmetology program prepares you to take the Florida cosmetology exam.

    What do I do now? I am a cardiovascular surgical registered nurse. So my goal is to prep patients before their open heart surgery and when they come back post op to take care of them.

    I wanted to become a medical assistant because I have a special needs son and I was his caregiver, so I wanted to go into the health field to learn more about his needs and be educated in what I can help others do.

    My career choice at Fortis has really helped my personal life by giving me the degree that I wanted to have to work in a field that I wanted. So it’s not so much that I’m going to a job, I’m going to something I want to do and I enjoy doing.
