Greetings! I have never posted in here and I am not a nurse. I found your forum doing a google search about nurse misrepresentation in Arizona.
I was in a (not at my fault) motor vehicle accident involving 3 cars over a year ago and recently received one of the parties deposition that was taken under oath. The woman's deposition was filled with inaccuracies. In her testimony she stated that she is an Internal Medicine nurse working in Scottsdale for the past decade. I work at the Mayo Clinic as IT support and knew that you could search licensures and certifications through the states' BON, which I did using her full name and monikers. I was unable to find this individual anywhere in the BON licensure check tool and I have a feeling that she is not licensed or registered in another state and is misrepresenting herself in order to bolster her testimony about injuries. I have already emailed the BON to see if it is against the law to misrepresent oneself as a "nurse" in legal testimony to the general public or if that only applies when it comes to your patients. I am hopeful that I will receive a response but if anybody here could provide any insight I would be forever grateful. Thank you so much in advance for any advice!
