“Salt Lake City’s nursing program was launched in 2010. To earn NLNAC accreditation for the ADN program within three years is an exemplary accomplishment. The campus deserves to feel proud…and I am proud of them, too,” said Dr. Robert Anders, Vice President of Nursing at Fortis, who directs one of the largest nursing education providers in the U.S.
