Glad I'm not going there.
Spencerian College has filed a lawsuit seeking to prevent the Kentucky Board of Nursing from enforcing its decision to place the school’s registered nursing program on probation.
The lawsuit, filed Monday in Jefferson Circuit Court, also seeks to have the board’s ruling reversed and deemed in violation of the Kentucky Constitution and the due process clause of the U.S. Constitution.
The nursing board earlier this month reaffirmed a previous decision to place the school’s registered nursing program on probation after its graduates failed to meet the 85 percent pass rate required on state licensing exams. Spencerian’s rate was 81 percent last year.
The action means students enrolled in the nursing program can continue, but the school can't admit new students until the board evaluates the program again next February.
The college’s attorney, Grover Potts Jr., said a May 4 court hearing has been scheduled.
Spencerian College, located on Dixie Highway, is part of the Sullivan University System
