Fortis & Denver College of Nursing: Your #1 Nursing Educators

Advance Your Nursing Career with a MSN Degree

We are proud to announce that Fortis Colleges & Institutes and Denver College of Nursing (DCN) are teaming up to bring nursing students an enhanced learning experience!

Fortis Colleges & Institutes and DCN have developed an articulation agreement that now enables Fortis nursing students to transfer their nursing credits directly into DCN’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) and Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) programs –but there’s more good news. With DCN’s programs designed by nurses for nurses, we understand the busy lifestyle of a working RN, that’s why both nursing programs are fully online, giving you the convenience of an online-learning experience that’s not harsh on your time or your budget.
