Submission + - Nursing Students Expelled Over Facebook Pictures (kansascity.com)

clone52431 writes: In a strange twist on the usual story, four nursing students have been expelled from the Johnson County Community College over some pictures that apparently made someone at the college cringe. No, they didn’t pose nude, or with beer, hookers, or underage children – they were posing with a human placenta during a visit to the Olathe Medical Center for one of their lab classes. According to JCCC director of nursing, Jeanne Walsh, “Your demeanor and lack of professional behavior surrounding this event was considered a disruption to the learning environment and did not exemplify the professional behavior that we expect in the nursing program,” (in a letter to one of the expelled students) and a college dean is calling this “a lesson hard learned.” Now, I’m not one for shirking consequences, but what exactly are the consequences of posing with a placenta? I don’t think it’s illegal, and I don’t think the placenta’s HIPPA rights were violated... so why did they get kicked out of school over it? My guess: Cooties.
