WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A former nursing student has filed a federal lawsuit against two community colleges in Kansas over an adverse and secret clinical reference she contends destroyed her educational and career opportunities.

Rebecca Lemon sued Coffeyville Community College and a nursing program instructor Wednesday for defamation. Her lawsuit also claims the college falsely assured her when she enrolled that its nursing program would be accredited.

Lemon is also seeking a court order requiring Labette Community College and its nursing director to disclose the identity of the person whose reference was the basis of her denial to that school's nursing program. She wants copies of her educational records and a court order forcing the college to admit her.

The colleges and employees named as defendants did not immediately respond to emails seeking comment.
