HR at the hospital I work at told me that, according to the Illinois Nurse Practice Act, a person working as an R.N. cannot work as a CNA, PCT, or ER tech as well. Is it different for EMT-B and paramedics? I have read threads where people say that they work as both a R.N. and a paramedic. I live in Illinois, I don't know if it varies from state to state. Is this allowed by the Illinois Nurse Practice Act?
I would really appreciate some clarification. Thank you.
