    I have worked in labs where the staff included both RT's and RN's and every staff member performed every job function. No exception. It can make the orientation for a new team member longer but my opinion is that it's a good system. Dividing job duties seems to also divide the staff. The RT's have their strengths and the nurses have theirs. It is a highly workable and pleasant atmosphere when information is shared. I have learned alot from the RT's I have worked with...hopefuly they would say the same about me.
