Fake nurse attempting to find job in B.C.: BCCNM

Fake nurse attempting to find job in B.C.: BCCNM

The British Columbia College of Nurses and Midwives is warning that a woman is claiming to be a nurse in order to find work at local hospitals.

The BCCNM says Charrybelle Talaue is claiming to be a registered nurse in B.C., but is in fact not registered with the college and is not entitled to practice as a registered nurse in the province.

The BCCNM says Talaue may also be using the names Belle Talaue – Belle Marie – Charrybelle Baldesancho or Charie Talaue.

She may also be trying to use the name of someone who is a registrant of the BCCNM, Yves Anglehart, or variations of the name, including Belle Yves Talaue Anglehart or Yves Belle Anglehart.

The BCCNM is reminding all health-care employers that they can verify the registration status of new employees on its website under the nurse verification or midwife verification sections.

Talaue is the second high-profile person to pose as a nurse in B.C. in recent years.

In August, Brigitte Cleroux was charged with several fraud-related offences after posing as a health-care worker in B.C., Alberta, Ontario and in the U.S.

In November 2020, she worked as a nurse in a private health clinic in View Royal for a period of three weeks.
