Naleki Nyathi (42) was, however, spared a custodial term after magistrate, Gladmore Mushove suspended the entire sentence on condition she pays a $300 fine.
The court heard that sometime in 2016, Nyathi went to Mpilo School of Nursing and applied for a nurse training vacancy using a forged Ordinary Level certificate.
After her application was accepted, the nursing school sent her certificates to the Zimbabwe School Examination Council (Zimsec) for verification, where it was discovered that the document had been forged.
