I have a question to satisfy my curiosity. I recently took advantage of free prostate screenings in the area which included a prostate exam. I got talking to the female who did the exam and she told me she was an RN working for the public health dept. I said are you also an NP but she said no just an RN. Are RN's qualified to so this exam. She seemed to know what she was doing , of course I probably wouldn't know the difference between a good and bad exam.
