West Virginia regulators have revoked the accreditation for Mountain State University's nursing school, effective August 31st.
The West Virginia Board of Examiners for Registered Professional Nurses reportedly made the announcement on Thursday.
School administrators had been granted an extension for its provisional accreditation in January. At that time, the state nursing board said it would yank accreditation if major changes weren't made.
The nursing program was placed on provisional accreditation in November 2010. MSU was cited then for a litany of problems. Those problems included a lack of administrative leadership, the loss of national nursing accreditation, failing to make required changes to course curriculum and failing to keep up-to-date student records regarding classes and their degree progress.
