A practice nurse with a gambling addiction who took $26,000 from her clinic and spent it on horse racing has escaped a two-year ban after she voluntarily suspended herself.

The nurse, who worked as the practice’s manager as well as caring for patients, admitted to putting her personal bank details onto a number of invoices generated by the medical centre in 2016.
