The nursing schools in question appeared legitimate, boasting impressive facilities and promising students a bright future in healthcare. Little did the aspiring nurses know that these institutions were simply hollow shells, designed to exploit their dreams and drain their resources.


The investigation began when revelations were made that some schools had been selling thousands of fake nursing diplomas and this information triggered a chain of events that would expose the depths of this fraudulent operation. Law enforcement agencies swiftly launched a comprehensive inquiry to uncover the truth and put an end to the charade as this has turned into a multi-million-dollar industry.


The schools, under different names, flew under the radar for years, exploiting aspiring nurses and tarnishing the reputation of the entire profession. Arrests were made for about two dozen people in Operation Nightingale with federal warrants issued, mostly in Florida, related to the Sacred Heart Institute, Siena College of Health, and the Palm Beach School of Nursing.
