Woman works as registered nurse with fake degree, license

In addition to Memphis, Cotton-Brown is accused of faking it at Primary Healthcare of Millington where no one inside remembered her. In addition to Memphis, Cotton-Brown is accused of faking it at Primary Healthcare of Millington where no one inside remembered her.

(WMC-TV) - A Munford woman was indicted for impersonating a nurse.

Investigators accuse Beth Ann Cotton-Brown of working unlicensed at Primary Healthcare of Millington on Navy Road, Primary Care Pediatrics on Highway 51 in Millington, and Laurelwood Pediatrics on Sanderlin Avenue in Memphis.

Action News 5 reporter Nick Kenney's own doctor may have been duped by the 49-year-old woman.

"The news release came into our inbox, I read it, and went 'that's my kid's pediatrician,' " said Kenney.

He does not think his young son saw Cotton-Brown when authorities say she worked as a registered nurse at Laurelwood Pediatrics last year allegedly using a forged nursing degree and license.

"It's worrisome, and you hope nurses working with your children are actually nurses," said Kenney.

The Shelby County District Attorney announced through a release Tuesday that Cotton-Brown was indicted on five counts including identity theft, forgery, and impersonating a licensed professional.

In addition to Memphis, she's accused of faking it at Primary Healthcare of Millington where no one inside remembered her.

Neighbors Jason and Stephanie Morris, who have a 1-year-old son, also find the charges disturbing.

"Because when you take your child into a physician's office that they have the best interest of the child and legal documents and paperwork have been verified," said Stephanie.

Cotton-Brown is also charged with fabricating a letter from a Millington judge clearing her of driving charges. She is free tonight on a $5,000 bond.

    BYLINE: Victoria Idoni EAST TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - This is an all too familiar scene on the roads: people getting distracted behind the wheel. April is National Distracted Driving Awareness Month.

The good news is, there are ways in which our changing culture is evolving to deal with technology and how it can both hel...
