    No, they're not enrolled nurses: a practice nurse is a registered nurse who works in a general practitioner's (family doctor's) practice. The one at my local health centre syringes my ears, but I know they do a whole lot more than that heh!

    syringe ears............ I wish!! I'm a nurse practitioner but the PNs are registered nurses, starting to be graduates at that!! we do anything and everything from nurse run diabetic/ asthma/ chd clinics, to surgery- my other half at work does cryotherapy. The role is what you make it, so I know PNs who do psychosexual counselling, run smoking cessation stuff. common to do travel medicine, plus all the bog standard stuff of dressings, injections, ears (ugh) cervical smears etc. some are involved in research, teaching.. all sorts!! there is no standard job description.. so what a pn in my area does may differ to another area. we are not enrolled nurses.. honest.
