I'd like to get some feedback from any IR or cath lab nurses who are managed by a radiology tech. What is the normal hierarchy for these departments? Do you have a nurse to answer to? Also, are you a secondary part of the department (like an afterthought) or are you an equal with the rad techs? I am trying to affect some change in my department and I'd like to know if I'm just going to spin my wheels since these departments (or possibly just mine) are so tech oriented.
