Former 'Nurse of The Year' Not A Nurse

Betty A. Lichtenstein of Norwalk, Connecticut was lauded as "nurse of the year" at a fancy dinner in 2008. Now an investigation finds that Lichtenstein wasn't even a nurse!
An investigation then determined that Lichtenstein never had a license, yet had administered injections and given medical advice to the doctor's patients, according to the warrant.

The doctor's and his employees' belief that Lichtenstein was a nurse was reinforced when in November 2008 she was honored as "2008 Nurse of the Year" by the Connecticut Nursing Association.

The investigation determined, however, that the Connecticut Nursing Association does not exist and that Lichtenstein used $2,000 of her own money to stage the dinner, according to the warrant.

The doctor who employed Lichtenstein was asked to speak at the event. Lichtenstein was arrested in May on unrelated charges involving prescription drugs.,0,160045.story -via Arbroath

Unrelated prescription drug charges? I think not -- why else would she pose as a nurse, cheap thrills? She likely wanted access to meds, why else spend a couple grand to wangle the job?
