Recently, a number of nursing schools across the US have lost their credentials due to fraud. In essence, a number of attorney generals for various states have determined that the schools were effectively a sham, “selling” nursing degrees without requiring class attendance.
Nurses who graduated from a nursing school that is no longer an approved education program in New Jersey may be required to complete additional education or training to meet the current educational requirements for licensure in the state.
The New Jersey Board of Nursing may evaluate each case on an individual basis and determine what additional requirements need to be met. Some possible options for meeting the requirements could include completing additional coursework or clinical hours, completing an approved refresher course, or applying to a different nursing program that is currently approved in New Jersey.
It is important for nurses who are in this situation to contact the New Jersey Board of Nursing for guidance and to ensure they are taking the appropriate steps to meet the current educational requirements for licensure in the state.
