Direct Notice Policy for Programs leading to Licensure or Certification
Academia Medical Institute determines the student’s physical location during the admissions process. Applicants share their address on the Application for Admission. Their address is verified through government issued ID that is collected as part of the admissions process. As the program is residential, students must be located in the Columbus, Ohio, area to attend. Students located outside of Ohio are not accepted into the Practical Nursing (PN) program.
For applicants and students of the Practical Nursing (PN) program, Academia Medical Institute provides direct notice as to the determination of qualification for licensure for states outside of Ohio via email.
Students at Academia Medical Institute are able to update their personal information, including address, in the Student Information System. Staff receives a notice when the student changes their address. If a student’s address is updated to a state outside Ohio, the Direct Notice process is started. Direct Notice is provided via email within 14 days of the notification of the address change as reported in the Student Information System.
However, as the Practical Nursing (PN) program is residential, students are encouraged to speak with Academia Medical Institute staff prior to relocation to determine options for continuing training or withdrawing prior to moving outside of Ohio.
If a student moves out of Ohio, or if the determination of qualification for licensure for a state on the list changes for the Practical Nursing (PN) program, Academia Medical Institute provides Direct Notice to all students. Direct Notice is provided via email within 14 days after the day the change in determination is identified by Academia Medical Institute.
State by State Disclosure for Programs leading to Licensure or Certification
Academia Medical Institute’s Practical Nursing (PN) program is approved by the Ohio Board of Nursing and qualifies graduates to apply for the NCLEX-PN exam in Ohio. Graduation from the Practical Nursing (PN) program does not guarantee passing the NCLEX-PN and earning licensure in Ohio or in any other state. Licensure is required to work as a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) in Ohio. Licensing requirements are shared with prospective students during the admissions process. They can also be found on the Ohio Board of Nursing website: https://nursing.ohio.gov/licensing-certification-ce/rn-aprn-lpn/.
Should a student move out of state during training, it is up to the student to contact the agency which licenses Practical Nurses (LPNs) in that state to determine if the training completed at Academia Medical Institute will be accepted toward that state’s licensure requirements.
Further, if a student moves out of state after completion of the Practical Nursing (PN) program, it is up to that graduate to contact the agency which licenses Practical Nurses (LPNs) in that state to determine if they will qualify to apply to sit for the NCLEX-PN in that state.
Finally, if a graduate moves out of state after sitting for and passing the NCLEX-PN and gaining licensure as a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) in Ohio, it is up to that graduate to contact the agency which licenses Practical Nurses (LPNs) in that state to determine if the Ohio license will be accepted in that state or if other licensure requirements must be met in order to be eligible for employment in the new state.
