MARSHALL, TX (KLTV) -

A Henderson woman has been charged after she allegedly falsified information to receive employment as a nurse.

Stephanie Garcia, 29, of Henderson, was arrested on Wednesday and charged with fraudulent use/possession of identifying information and two counts of nursing regulations.

According to the warrant affidavit provided by the Marshall Police Department, a complaint was sent to the Harrison County District Attorney's Office in November of 2017 from the Texas Board of Nursing. Garcia was reported to be practicing nursing with a license at Davita Dialysis in Marshall as of May of 2016.

In April of 2016, Garcia completed an online employment application for Davita Dialysis for the nursing position. Garcia used a unique identifying number belonging to the complainant, identifying herself as a registered nurse. 

In January of 2018, employment records were sent to the Board of Nursing from Davita Dialysis, along with business records and confirmed that Garcia had used the complainant's nursing license number to obtain employment without the complainant's consent.

Garcia was responsible for patient care at Davita Dialysis and performed the duties of a registered nurse.

Garcia was booked into the Harrison County Jail. She was released Thursday on a $35,000 bond.
