SAN FRANCISCO —
State regulators have shut down a San Francisco Bay area nursing school over concerns about its accreditation and finances.
The California Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education closed the Institute of Medical Education on Wednesday. The for-profit school serves about 250 students on campuses in San Jose and Oakland.
In addition to nursing, it offers courses in dental hygiene, phlebotomy and MRI and ultrasound technology.
Department of Consumer Affairs spokesman Russ Heimerich told the Bay Area News Group that the school has had operational, accreditation and financial problems.
The department oversees the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education.
But school Operations Director Khoi Lam called the closure "ridiculous." She said school officials may sue the state.
Regulators are expected to be on campus on Thursday to answer questions from displaced students.
