OT-can't believe this happened!

I usually don't like posting too much personal information, but something happened in my town that blew my mind.

An elementary school nurse was arrested for practicing without a license. She worked for this school for five years! We are outraged she slipped through and was hired. She apparently was using a fake name. There are reports she's been arrested for the same crime in two other states-how the hell did this not show up on a background check? Would her fingerprints (they fingerprint faculty) not raised a red flag to the school board?

This woman also claimed to have cancer and the community did a fund raiser for her. Her cancer reports are also false and this is also a gimmick she has used to weasel money out of people for years.

So this has my little town abuzz. I will post a link to the news story.

wtf. i hate hearing about stuff like that because it does discourage people from donating/helping those that really do need the help.

i hope third time is a charm for justice.

 That kind of stuff pisses me off.

As for the money- She should be forced to give the money either to a community organization or the school.

WOW...what a crazy lady.

and yes..nursing staff do their finger prints with every new job. They can't just show up with a piece a paper that states they are a nurse. It has to be verified through the state board of nursing.

she had to of had a fake ID and SS as well. I wounder how she was doing her taxes.

How strange!

holly shit!!!

The school didn't even call to have her licence checked! It would have been a 3min phone call.

Shame on them. The school should be in trouble as well.

The town is outraged and people are talking abut suing the school. I mean, how does this slip? Some people are supporting her because she is a nice lady. Nice or not, she broke the law.

Dh is a nurse and although he isn't fingerprinted for every job, his nursing license and DL is always ran. I had him read this article and he was appalled that the school wouldn't check to verify her licensure. I can't believe only one parent called in concerned!
