BECKLEY (AP) — Mountain State University is facing more lawsuits over its nursing program’s loss of accreditation.
The Register-Herald reports that 10 students filed the lawsuits last month in Kanawha County Circuit Court. The lawsuits claim breach of contract. They allege that Mountain State misled the students about the nursing program’s problems
The students were enrolled in the school’s nursing cohort program.
The lawsuits claim that the students were encouraged to continue participating in the program after the National League for Nursing Accreditation Commission denied accreditation in 2010.
Twelve traditional nursing students make similar claims in lawsuits filed earlier this year.
Mountain State spokesman Andy Wessels and interim President Richard Sours declined comment on the pending litigation.
