(FOX NEWS) — A North Carolina politician has allegedly been misidentifying herself as a nurse online, drawing the ire of the state’s nursing board earlier this week.
State Rep. Beverly Boswell mislabeled herself as a registered nurse on her campaign website and Facebook page until the North Carolina Nursing Board told her to cut it out after receiving a complaint, Raleigh’s News & Observer reported Wednesday.
“Working her way up from struggling single mother to registered nurse and Dare County Commissioner, Beverly rejects the liberal notions of victim-hood and government dependency,” the Observer reported the Facebook page as saying Tuesday morning.
But the nursing board challenged the lawmaker’s claim.
“Rep. Boswell is not a licensed nurse nor has she ever been a licensed nurse,” board spokesman David Kalbacker told the paper Tuesday.
