Uh, no. It's similar to the difference between a Ph.D. and an M.D. A "nurse"
has completely different training than a corpsman and there are completely
different legal ramifications associated with the care given by each.
For example, a "nurse" can write prescriptions (under the authority of a
physician), a corpsman can't.
Right. But that's only because nurses generally aren't allowed on the
ANYONE, nurse or not, can perform emergency surgery on the battlefield - or
in an alley in midtown Manhattan, on a dude ranch, riding a Ferris Wheel at
the Ohio State Fair in Columbus, backpacking in the Grand Tetons, on a
Mississippi Riverboat, or while watchin Dr Phil at the neighborhood tavern.
I'd like to perform surgery on the Paul guy, Letterman's band sidekick.
Don't need any medical instruments. Band instrument, namely guitar
string, applied somewhere between the chin and shoulders is what I had in
mind. Paul deserves a "Goodfella".
You're talking about a nurse practioner. Not a nurse. A regular nurse might
write the prescription for the doc but he has to sign it. A nurse
practiition is authorized to prescribe just as a corpsman is when there are
no doctors available.
