In the news: Phony nursing school pays $500,000 restitution

Stressed Out Nurses Weekly, August 16, 2010

A fake nursing school's administrator in Los Angeles was ordered to pay $500,000 by the state after advertising an accredited nursing program that was not actually accredited, reports KERO 23, the local ABC News affiliate.

About 300 students paid $20,000 in tuition to attend RN Learning Center, only for many to find that their transcripts were declared fraudulent by the National Council Licensing Examination. RN Learning Center never applied to the Board of Registered Nursing for accreditation. As an unaccredited school, none of the coursework will count toward a bachelor of science in nursing. The settlement concluded after three years of investigation, during which time the school was shut down.
