Merit Technical Institute – LPN Program

The Merit Technical Institute has mixed reviews from students. Student complaints focus primarily on lack of financial aid and fees associated with the school that they had expected to be part of the overall tuition. In 2006 the former owner of the school was sentenced to prison for defrauding the Department of Education and Labor by accepting from the government for students that were not eligible or qualified to be in the program [ref]. At one time they were not an accredited school but they are now listed as an accredited school by the state nursing board.
