It means that the accrediting body has given the facility that it is deficient in academic needs and has been warned that these items need to be fixed.
As part of the peer review process that California Community Colleges undergo every six years, LAVC completed a self evaluation and was visited in March 2013 by a review team, which made recommendations to help us improve our effectiveness. At its June 2013 meeting, the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges placed the college on warning status, requiring LAVC to address its recommendations within two years. During this time, the college remains fully accredited. Click here letter on college status for more information about what this means for LAVC.
This may have an impact on whether you may sit for boards at the end of your education. I would call the nursing department and ask for they are a nursing accredited program. This warning may NOT apply to the nursing program.
The Los Angeles Valley Nursing Program is approved by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) and the California Board of Registered Nursing (CABRN). National accreditation is a prestigious accomplishment for the nursing program at Los Angeles Valley College. National accreditation and State accreditation holds the Nursing Program at a high standard and assures a program of excellence.

I believe that the most common cause for this is poor NCLEX pass rates. If a school falls below 80% pass rate for 2 years in a row, they are placed on 'warning'... then, if the pass rates aren't 80% or better for following year, they will lose accreditation.
The college is on warning not the nursing program
LAVC's NCLEX pass rates have been over 90% consistently since 2010.
