ATLANTA (AP) — Federal officials say a woman has pleaded guilty to forging her license to work as a nurse for the U.S. Postal Service.

U.S. Attorneys officials said Tuesday that 44-year-old Fertina Brown pleaded guilty to one count of making a false document and will be sentenced Sept. 13.

Authorities say Brown was working as a mail carrier in 2007 when she applied to work as a postal service nurse.

Officials say the postal service requested a copy of Brown’s most recent nursing license in January 2011 because the last copy she provided had expired that month.

Authorities determined the license she provided Feb. 2, 2011 was forged, and said the nursing register number Brown provided belonged to a Texas resident who was on active duty with the military.
