Channel 9 found out a nurse was treating students at a Charlotte school for roughly four years without a license, and the school chose not to tell parents about it.
Elizabeth Randolph's license expired in 2009, but she kept working for Charlotte Christian until this year.
When she finally tried to renew it in November, the Board of Nursing told Channel 9 they caught the issue and made her go before a special panel in Raleigh.
The panel gave her a letter of concern that is not public and made her take 24 hours of a one-on-one legal/ethical course, which she did, and gave Randolph her license back.
Board spokesperson David Kalbacker emailed Channel 9 saying, "Licensure review panels have the latitude to take mitigating issues under consideration.
"For example, was this a patient care issue, was there a history or pattern of previous disciplinary problems, was there a traumatic issue going on in the licensee's life that should be considered ... Ms. Randolph had no record of disciplinary actions and this was not a patient care issue," Kalbacker said in the email.
Charlotte Christian head of school Barry Giller said the school had no idea Randolph's license had expired.
"While we regret the incident, the school's students were served at all times by five licensed nurses, and at no time were students at risk or the school's safety compromised,” Giller said in an email.
He admits the school never told parents and, as of Friday morning, still had not.
"Because we were confident that the care of students had not been compromised, we did not release a statement to the parent community," Giller said.
Giller said Randolph hasn't been with Charlotte Christian since the school found out in January.
It's not clear if she was fired or quit.
When Eyewitness News tried to talk to Randolph, three addresses and three phone numbers listed for her may have been incorrect.
