Nurse Elizabeth "Betsy" Frank, RN is a fictional character from the ABC daytime soap opera General Hospital.

The character appeared on GH briefly in 2010, 2013, and 2014, portrayed by actress Betsy Franco.

She is the illegally adoptive mother of serial killer Franco, originally played by the Golden Globe winning actor James Franco, Betsy Franco's real-life son.


Betsy first appeared when Franco stole Aiden Cassadine from the hospital. He told her he wanted to give her the baby to make up for being a bad kid.

Betsy assured Franco that she loved him. Dante Falconeri eventually managed to convince Betsy to give Aiden back to his parents.

In 2013, Betsy was questioned in regards to the location of Franco's daughter, Lauren. Betsy denied having any contact with Lauren and accused Lauren's mother of keeping her from Franco.

Betsy returned on Decmeber 11, 2014 regarding information on where Franco could be allegedly hiding with Nina Clay and Avery (then "Jaime").
