    Think about how they take them at home every day and no one monitors their BP

    This makes no sense! in a hospital the goal is not to confuse the patient, because the Physician is the one directing the overall care and he/she should be designated as such. What we do in the hospital setting is for the overall benefit of the patient and not to inflate our egos.

    In academics everyone who holds a doctorate can be identified as Dr. It is more than appropriate in that setting.
    It is meant to be a bit ridiculous.

    Doctor is not a protected title, it is an academic one. Physician is the protected title and they are designated as such.

    I attend patients in the hospital. I direct their care. By your definition then I should be called "doctor". The truth is, from my practice experience, patients want to call the person taking care of them "doctor". That's what is least confusing to them. Like I said, I don't use my title, I introduce by my first name, and most then just call me "doctor firstname". Incorrect them a few times and then let them do whatever they want. It has nothing to do with ego, I could really care less.

    What a nightmare for the office, why did the practice manager even consider it. Ugh.

    She is not a graduate nurse. She is not any type of nurse.

    Like other have said, drop a comment about how unlicensed personnel don't make those decisions.

    Sorry for the confusion, the post does talk a little in circles. My concern is that at my place of employment while I am clocked in doing my job not during clinical hrs. My boss just happens to find me during a clinical day.

    The place ware I work is the same place I do clinicals and I am a license practical nurse. But they claim that I am performing the role of a cna and that I should address myself as such. I was just wondering if it was OK to call myself another title that does not appear on my badge.

    If If you are functioning in the role of a CNA while
    clocked in at work, then I would think your employer would prefer you not refer to yourself as a nurse.

    I have several colleagues that are NPs working part time as RNs and none of them want to be confused for NPs in that role.

    At clinical you should refer to yourself as a RN student.

    Min many ways there is a legal gray area around you.

    Good lord, Boston, keep Grumpy Kitty away from the math teachers. This was their frame of mind!
    Seems pretty reasonable.
