Nurses practice nursing.
LIPs and nurses both work in healthcare.
The roles might get blurry in the ICU but you certainly practice nursing, not medicine. If you practiced medicine there would be no need for the MDs in the ICU.
- Oct 24, '12 by BINOCThanks to all that responded objectively. Wow, the opinions are little more aggressive than I sought! I was not trying to offend anyone, so apologies to anyone that might have taken this the wrong way. I was only trying to get clarification--I did not say I or myself said anyone used the terms "practicing in medicine' to mislead anyone. Just a curiousity/question that in my mind, that needed clarification. So thanks again, to all who so eagerly responded.
