ST. LOUIS, MO — Samantha Rivera, 36, pleaded guilty to health care fraud and identity theft.  She admitted to lying about her nursing credentials and work experience after spending months working as a nurse at a St. Louis hospital.

In September 2016 Rivera used the name and license number of a New Mexico nurse with a similar name to get a job at St. Alexius Hospital. She worked there as a nurse in the intensive care unit and geriatric psych ward.

Rivera faces 10 to 16 months in federal prison.
