No fewer than 18 nurses from Nigeria residents in Texas, the United States have been charged to court for obtaining educational credentials through fraudulent means.

The Texas Board of Nursing has filed formal charges against 23 nurses practicing in the US over certificates forgery.

In a statement on its website, the Board published names of the accused nurses of which not less than 18 are suspected to be of Nigerian descent.

According to the Texas Board of Nurses, all the suspects were caught in a grand fraudulent diploma/transcript scheme as revealed by an ongoing investigations.

The multi-state coordinated law enforcement action code-named ‘Operation Nightingale,’ involving the US Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General (HHS-OIG), was inaugurated on January 25, 2023, to arrest individuals involved in a scheme to sell false and fraudulent nursing degree diplomas and transcripts.

The Nigerians involved are; Abiodun, Yetunde Felicia; Adelakun, Abiodun Aveez; Adelekan, Joseph Adewale; Adeoye, Vivien Temitope; Adewale, Modinat Abidemi; Afolabi, Olufemi Toun; Afolabi, Omowunmi F; Agbo, Odumegwu Steve; and Ajibade, Charlot Omotayo.

The Texas Board of Nursing further explained that the suspects engaged in the scheme procured fraudulent nursing credentials which they used to sit for the national nursing board exam.

“Upon successful completion of the board exam, the nursing applicants became eligible to obtain licensure in various states to work as an RN or a LPN/VN,” the Board stated in a separate statement.

It also clarified that the formal charges filed against the offenders are not a final disciplinary action, therefore, they are permitted to work pending the outcome of the charges.

The statement read: “The Board has filed Formal Charges against the following nurses for fraudulently obtaining educational credentials.

“The Board is authorized to file Formal Charges against a nurse if probable cause exists that the nurse has committed an act listed in Tex. Occ. Code §301.452(b) or that violates other law. See Tex. Occ. Code §301.458. Further, Formal Charges are publicly available. See Tex. Occ. Code §301.466(b).

“Please note that Formal Charges are not a final disciplinary action, and a nurse is permitted to work, as a nurse, while Formal Charges are pending.”

Other non-Nigerian nurses named in the scandal are Abanda, Jacob Atambili; Addai, Agnes Fosuah; Anaaba, Awingrug Musah; Anthony-Annor, and Spendilove; Asanga, Albert Nshanui.

Well, this is embarrassing!

Texas board of Nursing has published names of nurses formally charged for fraudulently obtaining educational credentials. Funnily, majority are Nigerians.

They are still checking people whose last name starts with A. Them never enter B and C…🧐

If fellow humans can dig deep and discover fraudulent activities carried out , then know and Understand that the secret evil you engage in feeling know one knows about is an open sepulchre before GOD ALMIGHTY.
Nothing is hidden from the eyes of GOD ALMIGHTY.

Make amends today! Repent from such evil, SURRENDER to JESUS Christ.

Time is running out. JESUS CHRIST is coming. Be ready.

According to the news we read last week about this,
The main culprits, (the founders of the 3 school involved have all be arrested),
We are sure all the almost 8000 involved may not know the schools where founded fraudulently with mischief.

We are sure the students not involved or do not know anything about the frauds of the owners of the school will be set free in due time, BUT they may lose their licenses and all the almost $20,000 we heard they paid.

Cc : Cococandy, heard any thing about this news?
