FORTIS’ ADN in Indianapolis Program

The ADN program at the Fortis College Indianapolis campus is ACEN accredited. We are proud to say our program aims to develop the essential skills that are necessary to start a successful career in the nursing profession - the personal, academic, and clinical skills. Graduates of our program are well prepared to obtain entry-level registered nurse positions in a variety of healthcare settings.

This is a hybrid program, which means that the majority of the program is taken at the campus and several courses within the program (less than 50% of the program) are taken online. The program’s blend of on campus and online courses allows students to experience all the support and services our school has to offer as well the flexibility and convenience of online classes.*

After graduation from our ADN in Indianapolis program, students will be prepared to take the NCLEX-RN examination to obtain licensure as a registered nurse.

Are you a Licensed Practical or Vocational Nurse who wants to advance your career?

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 ADN program provides an entry path just for LPNs and LVNs.

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 enter positions in healthcare settings that may not hire LPNs/LVNs (employ only RNs). Associate Degree licensed RNs also usually have more options for professional advancement. In recent years there have been fewer hospitals hiring LPN/LVNs, and this trend is expected to continue.

The Fortis Nursing entry path also offers many LPNs/LVNs the opportunity to receive academic credit for having completed an approved PN/VN education and having an active LPN license. Contact Fortis today to speak to an admissions representative to learn how Fortis can prepare you to sit for the NCLEX-RN exam to earn your licensure as a registered nurse in less time than you might think.

In addition, Fortis has partnered with its sister school, the regionally accredited Denver College of Nursing (DCN), to provide further education programs that can result in career advancement opportunities for Associate Degree nurses through its online RN to BSN and MSN programs.
