From The San Francisco Chronicle: An Oakland, Calif., vocational nursing college where six students were killed last month has been placed on a form of probation. The Board of Vocational Nursing and Psychiatric Technicians has made approval of the nursing program at Oikos University provisional, citing low pass rates on exams. To continue its nursing program, the school must raise its pass rates and fix other problems within the next two years.


APRIL 2012....From The San Jose Mercury News: A week after seven people were shot to death at Oikos University in Oakland, Calif., its president says the school will need help to survive. Jongin Kim says he is unsure whether Oikos will survive the tragedy. Most of the university's income comes from tuition, so last week's shooting deaths could have a devastating effect if students no longer apply. Classes have been canceled indefinitely, and Oikos has not announced when it will resume. University leaders say they may try to hold classes at temporary sites to avoid further traumatizing students.
