Many nurses in New Jersey will no longer be able to practice all because they were issued bogus diplomas.
Twenty nurses had their licenses revoked and another 26 had their temporary licenses canceled. A federal investigation found that those diplomas were fraudulently issued by universities in Florida.
Back in January the DOJ had charged 26 people with wire fraud at the five - now closed - Florida universities. The DOJ found more than 7,000 fake diplomas were given out. These nurses can no longer practice in New Jersey. And those who do will be hit with fines and penalties.
