      Woman wanted for posing as school nurse arrested

      {}LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Federal prosecutors say a woman wanted for posing as a nurse at a Searcy elementary school has been arrested and will face a seven-count indictment.

      {}Authorities learned in July 2012 that Susan Elaine Boyce of Pleasant Plains, who had worked as a nurse at Sidney Deener Elementary School, did not have a nursing license.

      {}Boyce was charged with using other persons' nursing license numbers and Social Security numbers to get and keep her job at the school.

      {}The 59-year-old Boyce worked at the school from the 2007-2008 school year through the 2011-2012 school year, and earned more than $175,000 in that time.

      {}Boyce faces wire fraud charges for cashing her monthly paychecks at a bank. She's also charged with aggravated identity theft and misuse of a Social Security number.
