A licensed practical nurse police say raped and impregnated an incapacitated woman no longer has his license.

On Friday, the victim’s former caregiver Nathan Sutherland surrendered his nursing credentials.

The 29-year-old woman has lived at Hacienda HealthCare for more than two decades and gave birth in late December.

“This matter is being investigated thoroughly and as more information comes to light and more evidence, if there is evidence of nurses who are unsafe to practice this board will continue to take immediate action as the investigation progresses," said Randy Quinn, president of the Arizona Board of Nursing.

Quinn said that if Sutherland didn’t surrender his license the board was planning to revoke it.
