Unapproved Nursing Educational Programs Operating in Texas
The Board is aware of six schools operating in Texas without Board approval. Graduates from these programs would not be
eligible to take the NCLEX licensure examination. Review the BON News posting for more
information and a list of the six schools.
UPDATE - On May 29, 2012, the Office of the Attorney General issued a permanent injunction against Richardson-based Esther Medical Institute, Inc. (EMI), its owner Esther Oleru, and Stanley Jean, owner of Georgia-based ATCI Medical Institute and Oleru’s offshore financial sponsor, for failure to obtain valid licenses or exemptions to operate a career school under the Texas Education Code. The judgment also held the owner of the now-defunct healthcare school liable for $840,000 in restitution to students, imposed a $150,000 civil penalty, and ordered the defendants to pay any attorney fees associated with the case.
