Around 50 nursing students at Howard University picketed Tuesday, protesting the shoddy education they say they've been receiving for years, the Hilltop reports. Their efforts prompted the administration to hold a town hall meeting on Wednesday evening where the students' concerns were discussed but no specific action was undertaken.

Last year, students organized a walk-out of exams, which threatened the school's accreditation. The protesters' list of demands includes improvement in teaching, testing standards, and overall organization of the school's priorities.
