(ATLANTA, Ga.) — WSB consumer investigator Justin Gray has learned that 22 nurses practicing in Georgia have allegedly obtained their licenses with fake diplomas or transcripts.
The Georgia Board of Nursing has sent them letters asking them to voluntarily surrender their nursing licenses within 30 days.
Those letters were sent on Jan. 17 and so far, none of the nurses have.
“It’s concerning and alarming,” Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger told Gray.
Raffensperger’s office oversees the nursing board.
“Our job is to make sure that our people in Georgia, our patients know they have credentialed nurses that are practicing there,” Raffensperger said.
The Georgia nurses are allegedly among the thousands who paid $15,000 each for a bogus diploma from three south Florida nursing schools.
