Anyone know of a link to check for nursing schools on probation?

  1. I was wondering if anyone knew of a link or source that would list nursing schools currently on academic probation. I am seriously considering going for my bachelor's degree (have ASN) and want to be able to check out the schools before I send them my hard earned money.....

    Each state board of nursing (SBON) approves schools within the state. In PA, info is available at the SBON website
    http://www.dos.state.pa.us/bpoa/cwp/...=1104&q=433268
    ---check your state.

    Link to all state boards:

    I knew you would have a link. Unfortunately, Indiana does not have as much information on its site as PA. I noticed that PA also lists all the actions taken against nurses and other health care providers... I wish Indiana had something like that...especially for doctors...

    Indiana DOES have something like that for nurses and doctors:


    Indiana SBONursing
    http://www.state.in.us/hpb/boards/isbn/


    Indiana websites Basic information includes:
    *license number
    *practitioner name
    *license type
    *the city and state of record provided by the practitioner
    *current status/actions, such as, active, expired, probation, suspension, revoked etc

    FOR FREE BASIC INFORMATION ON A PHYSICIAN PRACTITIONER

    MEdicare (MC) certified Homecare agencies are required to verify physician/nursing licensure BEFORE patient seen and to make sure practitioner without Medicare restrictions....that's how I learned this stuff. We I get to work this week will post a webite that has all physician links---also good UPIN lookup sites.
