State Regulators Revoke License to LPN Education Program

 

CHICAGO – The Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation today revoked the license of Omega/American Hope Institute, in Rosemont, which had been offering a program for aspiring licensed practical nurses.

In its revocation notice, IDFPR cited the failure of the program to meet the criteria of an approved nursing education program. The school also failed to respond to Department requests. It is important that students considering whether to enroll or continue their education be aware that no credits will be allocated towards graduation from schools that lose their approval from IDFPR.

All approved nursing programs in Illinois are required to provide annual evaluations to IDFPR, which should include information about curriculum, student population and pass rates for graduates who attempt to take the National Council Licensing Examination (NCLEX). Illinois rules require all approved programs to maintain a pass rate of 75% or provide a plan for dealing with the program deficiencies.

A copy of the order is available here.
