A woman who has reportedly been posing as a registered nurse “in order to seek employment” is the subject of a warning by the BC College of Nursing Professionals (BCCNP) this week.
In a statement, the BCCNP said that an individual named Madison Zarazun has been holding herself out as a registered nurse in British Columbia in order to seek employment as a registered nurse (RN) or caregiver.
“Ms. Zarazun has responded to at least one online advertisement for an in-home caregiver position, and advised the prospective employer that she is an RN,” said the BCCNP. “She may currently be working in other private care environments.”
In particular, the BCCNP said it has information that suggests that she may be working with a “medically fragile child” in the Kitsilano area of Vancouver, and accompanying the child to school.
The BCCNP said it has issued this notice because Zarazun is not a current registrant of BCCNP and “she is not authorized to practise as a registered nurse in British Columbia.”
