AMI is a properly licensed private career school. The institution meets the requirements of Chapter 3332 of the Ohio Revised Code and the standards, rules, and regulations of the Ohio State Board of Career Colleges and Schools.

Additionally, AMI is approved by the Ohio State Board of Nursing under 4723-5, Ohio Administrative Code. The organization that became AMI began operations as an allied health training program in December 2013. Initially, the organization offered a State Tested Nurse Aide (STNA) program until December 12, 2020, the STNA program was offered under an entity called Academia Nurse Aide Program. However, as the Academia Nurse Aide Program operated in the same space as Academia Medical Institute, AMI decided to close the Academia Nurse Aide Program entity and discontinue the STNA program to meet ABHES regulations preventing another business from operating on the same premises as an accredited institution. Academia Nurse Aide Program taught out the final cohort of STNA students, who completed December 11, 2020.

Academia Medical Institute LLC was established in June 2015 as a separate business entity and was licensed as Academia Medical Institute by the Ohio State Board of Career Colleges (OSBCCS) in September 2015; It has operated continuously since that time. The Ohio Board of Nursing (OBN) approved AMI’s Practical Nursing Program in 2017 and the Ohio Board of Career Colleges and Schools (OSBCCS). As a result, the first group of Practical Nursing students enrolled in June 2017.
