Florida Nursing Online / Fake online nursing program

1 US Review updated:

This online company touts itself as providing online CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) and HHA (Home Health Aide) courses that are accepted in the state of Florida. However, after you pay for and complete the courses, you receive a certificate that says its for "Avocational Uses Only". No reputable nursing agency of facility will accept a training certificate that essentially says you are a nurse as a hobby.

There is no address or phone number to contact for issues or questions, rather you have to contact so-called representatives via online chat. I used the chat 3 times and each time the "representative" was someone named Chris. I believe that Chris is the only person and the one running this scam. The site uses the word and gives the impression that it is accredited, but it is not.

When I confronted Chris via chat about the illegitimate certificate and requested a refund, he/she became defensive and stated that the wording on the certificate is mentioned on the website. When I pointed out that it was not nor was that stated in the Terms of Service, he/she promptly ended the chat and it was all of a sudden offline.

I emailed the address listed on the website and received a very unprofessional and immature reply. I informed the sender that I would report the company and then received an email stating I would receive a refund. The BBB contacted them due to my complaint and then I received another email stating that I would not receive a refund.

Beware of www.floridanursingonline.com. There is another website it uses www.floridahhaonline.com

    Hi Pkeen, I am doing research on online CNA programs. Thank you for the very insightful comment. Did you find any online schools that you might recommend. I was going to call these folks and ask them about lab and clinical training. I don't assume they have any of that. Did they have any videos in the course? Any information about online CNA programs will be highly appreciated .
