Tanya Bogdanovich - AB850364
The Member admitted that she engaged in acts of professional misconduct by: engaging in conduct or performing an act, relevant to the practice of nursing, that, having regard to all the circumstances, would reasonably be regarded by members of the profession as disgraceful, dishonourable or unprofessional in that she was found guilty of the criminal offence of first degree murder.
The College and the Member presented the Panel with a Joint Submission requesting an Order revoking the Member’s certificate of registration.
The Panel found that although the Member was incarcerated and the public was therefore protected, revocation ensured public confidence in the self-regulatory process. The Member’s reprehensible conduct was fundamentally inconsistent with the core values of the profession.
The Panel accepted the Joint Submission on Order. The penalty of revocation was in line with what had been ordered in previous cases. It was the only possible penalty in these circumstances.
