Fortis College, Salt Lake City, a post-secondary healthcare education institution, is seeking qualified candidates for the campus’ new RN – BSN (Bachelor of Science in Nursing) Degree Bridge Program. 

A bachelor’s degree generally is required to move into administrative nursing positions. The Salt Lake City campus’ program is tailored to working registered nurses (RNs) who are seeking continued professional growth and advancement. The curriculum offers advanced nursing concepts that enable prospective nurse leaders to enhance critical thinking and develop the leadership and management skills required of senior nursing professionals. 

Fortis College, Salt Lake City is beginning to enroll RN – BSN Degree Bridge program students now for upcoming class starts. Future class starts will be scheduled regularly throughout the year. 

“What makes this program attractive for area RNs with an Associate Degree in Nursing is that with their bachelor’s degree they can expand their professional horizons, whether that is to take on a more advanced role, teach nursing, enter administration and manage a department, become a consultant, or join the research field,” said Campus President Kendall Dean. 

“The Fortis program will instill in RNs the skills to take their careers to the next level in nursing. The program leverages ground-based and on-line training to allow for flexibility with busy work schedules while still maintaining a high-level of personal classroom interaction,” said Dean of Nursing Glenda Christiaens.

As one of the largest nursing education providers in the U.S., Fortis has enrolled more than 4,000 nursing students nationwide and operates over 20 nursing campuses in 10 states.
