Someone should mention for posterity that TriSmith College, which was on Yadkin Road in Fayetteville, North Carolina, advertised a hybrid distance-learning program to qualify staudents for the NC Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) exam in or around the 1990s. TriSmith required about 80 hours of clinical experience on site. Steve Levicoff classed them "as a degree mill based on misleading advertising;" they advertised nationally that they qualified students for the NCLEX-PN exam. In NC, apparently yes, but there were exclusions or limitations in other states. TriSmith College is now long gone and there seems to be very little trace of it online. The State Archives of North Carolina administers its student records. All of two people Like it on Facebook. Apparently it was also known for a time as TriSmith School of Allied Health & Professions. Two posts from Dr. Levicoff on alt.education.distance mentioning TriSmith: 1, 2.
