    Why must the media attach that she was a nurse onto it in the first place? You never see Michigan carpenter strung up and killed blah blah or Alaska welfare recipient in tragic DUI.
    Happens all the time and not just with nurses and or other healthcare providers.

    For better or worse in the United States one is known by what one does for a living.

    If in school or college news reports will often say "X.... was/is a student at .....high school"

    As for the rest of us it is our occupation and or previous careers that are linked to our names in the media.

    Case in point recently NYPD arrested young man dubbed "The Well Dressed Groper". A man who when around NYC physically sexually assualting females. When he was caught new media reported he worked at some Wall Street type firm and gave his occupation. The company promptly removed the man's name from their website and anything else to do with them.

    Asked several LE persons one knows about this and he said upon arrest they most always ask what a person does for a living/where there money comes from, and most comply. That information is then released to the media by the police for several reasons.

    Nancy Grace had a doctor explain the difference between RN and LVN.
    Someone should explain to Nancy Grace what kind of vile person it takes to make a living sensationalizing tragedies like this. Bloodsucking witch.

    I read today that it was a "vocational nurse." I got the impression she was in home health. The father does have visitation to see the baby, and I understood that the baby is in the care of "family." This nurse was still married, and already had 3 kids with her husband. She had miscarried the baby of her "fiance." Who knows what threw this woman over the deep end. I wonder if she had an abusive husband and was desperate to get out, and wanted this baby so her fiance would take care of her. Sad. Something must have unhinged her psychologically.

    The story stated she was a vocational nurse, not a registered nurse.

    Licensed Vocational Nurse L.V.N) or Licensed Practical Nurse (L.P.N), the title varies by state but both are same. Scope of the profession of course will vary by state practice act.

    Same here. Front page news story from a while back, "Nurse stealing narcotics." Turns out the guy was an ER tech.

    Well, who can blame the public when clinics have Medical Assistants addressing themselves as "nurses" to thousands and thousands of people every day?
    Half the time if not most the story gets onto the Internet before any deep fact checking is complete. When something like this happens usually local news reporters are the first on the scene trying to gather up information about the accused and will interview anyone and anyone with a pluse that claims to "know" the person.

    In such cases you'll get the person "works in healthcare", which overs a wide range. Or that they are a "nurse" simply based on someone seeing them leave for work in whites or scrubs and that they work in a facility such as hospital, LTC, etc...

    Why are some of you so hung up on this person's title??? It does NOT matter if she was a CNA, LPN, RN,CRNP, DNP, ABC, XYZ, ETC. Does it make you RNs feel better that she was a LPN???

    We are getting off topic here.

    This women killed someone and kidnapped an annocent new born. I pray for both families as I cannot imagine what they are going through. I pray that little angel is placed in a home where they will be loved and well cared for. This story breaks my heart.
