Phoney nurse alert

B.C.'s College of Nursing Professionals is warning of a phoney registered nurse attempting to get work in Vancouver.

The college says Madison Zarazun has responded to at least one ad for an in-home caregiver, claiming to be a registered nurse, CTV News reports.

"This person is not a registered nurse. When you get services, care provided to you by a registered nurse, it means that they've met qualifications and standards. This individual has not met those standards. She cannot use that title. She cannot provide care as a registered nurse," college CEO Cynthia Johansen says.

"In particular, BCCNP is in receipt of information that suggests that she may be working with a medically fragile child in the Kitsilano area of Vancouver, accompanying the child to school," a college release states.

"This notice is to advise the public that Madison Zarazun is not a current registrant of BCCNP and she is not authorized to practise as a registered nurse in British Columbia."

The college encourages employers to check credentials on its public registry.
