Associate in Nursing

If you want to become a Registered Nurse, then enrolling in and graduating from an ADN program at FORTIS can put you on the career track you desire.

On the other hand, if you are a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) or Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN) who wants to advance your nursing career to become a Registered Nurse (RN), the FORTIS associate degree in nursing (ADN) programs provide an entry path just for LPNs and LVNs. The FORTIS nursing entry path also offers many LPNs/LVNs the opportunity to receive academic credit for general education programs that may be been having completed in an approved PN/VN education combined with having an active LPN license.

There are many good reasons for LPNs/LVNs to return to school to become RNs. Generally speaking, RNs usually earn higher pay than LPNs/LVNs. RNs can have more career options and can obtain positions in healthcare settings that may only hire RNs. Associate Degree licensed RNs also usually have more options for professional advancement.
