An RN from Dallas was involved in a difficult situation, it was on or about May 24, 2019, while seeking employment as a Registered Nursing position in a hospital facility, the RN submitted a fraudulent reference letter to the agency. The RN’s conduct was likely to deceive the facility and could have affected their decision to employ her.

In response, the RN states she never submitted a reference letter, rather she filled out an application with references included. She stated in that application she inadvertently listed incorrect information for one of the references. The RN states that the listed Director of Nursing should be labeled as a Unit Manager/Charge Nurse. She states that they worked closely together in the past with the Charge Nurse written in the letter. The RN states it was not a fraudulent reference nor was there any malicious intent and at the time, she filled out the application to the best of my knowledge.
