LINCOLN – Nebraska Attorney General Doug Peterson announced a settlement today with Omaha Opportunities Industrialization Center (OOIC), a Nebraska nonprofit corporation. The settlement results from an investigation which found OOIC was offering nursing classes without having obtained accreditation for its certified nursing assistant program. The settlement requires OOIC to maintain accreditation for applicable classes as long as the classes are being offered, grant five full scholarships for the certified nursing assistance program, and provide periodic reports to the Attorney General’s Office, as well as requires OOIC board members to attend nonprofit training sessions. Before the settlement was finalized, OOIC reimbursed those students that took certified nursing classes during the time when the program did not have accreditation.
The settlement OOIC Settlement was done through an Assurance of Voluntary Compliance filed in Lancaster County District Court.
