Health officials in Quebec have discovered that a woman who had been working as a nurse and caring for hospital patients for 20 years was an impostor.
The health authority in the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region of eastern Quebec fired the woman this month from her position at the hospital in Jonquière.
The health authority said the woman managed to get hired and keep her job by providing the nursing licence number of someone with the same name.
Her ploy was discovered a few weeks ago when she enrolled in a training course. An official noticed that the age listed on her licence number did not match up with her actual age.
She was immediately suspended pending an investigation, which led to her dismissal.

You seem unable to understand this imposter PUT LIVES AT RISK.
You are supporting the rallying cry of the below 85 iQ crowd too stupid to understand the vast scope of what they don't know and that the LARGE volume of information required and essential is the reason it takes 4 years to be an RN nurse

Seriously? You think people cant learn outside a classroom setting?
The lady did the job for 20 years, I'm sure if she had a record of killing people it would have been noticed. If that happened and it wasn't noticed I would question the facility, not the individual.
Personally, I'll take an unlicensed nurse with 20 years experience over a doctor fresh out of school any day.
