Nurse struck off for plagiarism
A NURSE has been struck off for cheating on course assignments.
Emmanuel Ajala has been taken off the Nursing and Midwifery Council register after he admitted committing plagiarism while a student at Essex University.
A hearing by the NMC’s conduct and competence committee heard how two essays entered by Ajala in 2008 and 2009 were 53 per cent and 59 per cent similar to one published article, as detected by a university checking system.
The committee also found he had forged signatures on Open University documents while working at a Surrey care home and plagiarised a submission to the university, and found his actions had been dishonest.
