Are you a working LPN who wants to earn your ADN?

If you are a licensed practical nurse who wants to advance your nursing career to become a registered nurse, the Fortis ADN program allows an entry path for working LPNs and LVNs.

There are many good reasons for PNs to go back to school to become RNs. Generally speaking, RNs earn better salaries than PNs. In addition, RNs have more career options for specialization, positions and professional advancement. As LPN positions are becoming scarcer in hospital settings, those nurses who want to work in hospitals will have better job security once they earn their RN licensure.

LPN positions are becoming scarcer in hospital settings so in many cases, RNs enjoy better long-term job security.

For PN entry into the Fortis ADN program, you may be able to receive credit for previous coursework and general education classes. 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.

*The number of classes taken online varies each term, and some terms in the program may be taught entirely on campus. Speak to one of our admissions representatives for more information.

Programs vary by state and campus. Not all programs are offered at all locations. Contact local campus for accreditation information.
