Well the Dept of Education is looking into getting them into other nursing schools who will accept them. Hopefully they will be good schools who have a reputable educations, whether for-profit or state funded.
A) The number of students a nursing program can accommodate is set/capped by the state BON, based on a determination of how many faculty the school has, what kind of clinical sites and lab facilities they have and how many students they can reasonably accommodate in those settings. Most schools of nursing are operating at their capacity to begin with and have already accepted their incoming Fall classes; most of them have no ability to suddenly decide to accept any significant number of new students.
B) As already noted, many of the students in ITT nursing programs are there precisely because they were not competitive applicants for other, more legitimate and respectable, programs. Are you suggesting that schools should relax their admission standards and accept students that they would not ordinarily consider qualified candidates just because the students are getting shafted by ITT?
I don't wish the ITT students any ill, but I'm not optimistic about their chances of getting bailed out by other schools.
