State Questions Wellness Expert’s Degree

Postby Gus Sainz » Fri Jan 20, 2006 5:50 pm

“The state Office of Degree Authorization has told Nisha Jackson that all promotional references to her Ph.D. in health-care management from Kennedy Western University must also state that Kennedy Western "does not have accreditation recognized by the United States Department of Education and has not been approved by the Office of Degree Authorization."

‘It’s inherently deceptive for a health-care professional to call herself a Ph.D. or ‘doctor’ without using the disclaimer,’ said Alan Contreras, administrator of the Office of Degree Authorization.”

She doesn't list her Ph.D. in her info here.

Guess I spoke too soon as she does make reference to a doctoral degree when you click on her name. Sorry.

Exactly. Clicking on her portrait takes you to a more detailed bio which includes the statement, “She completed her Doctoral Degree in Health Care Management in 2000.”

Not only does this not seem to comply with Oregon law, according the article, “She said she had met all the requirements of the Oregon law and spent ‘thousands of dollars’ to remove any reference to her Ph.D. from her marketing materials.”
