    When I "ranted" about this in a previous post, someone told me that anyone can do what the doctor says is okay to do. My main rant was an x-ray tech who was administering meds and injections and calling herself and answering to the term "nurse".

    Funny though, where I work, apparently anyone can be a "nurse". From the x-ray techs all the way to the office supervisors (who have absolutely NO nursing knowledge).
