Doubtful a company has a procedure manual stating NPs can't do work that is beneath them. They can have you empty the trash and mop the floor if they wanted. They could have just laid you off, but instead kept you on. Being that you already work at this urgent care, what is the argument about not being trained? I worked in many urgent cares and wouldn't need any formal training to pick up nursing duties in a place I already work. Agree that if they are short, then both NPs and Physicians should pitch in with nursing/MA duties. Being that your an NP, and by default an RN, then nursing duties fall under your scope of practice. Your state organization can't do anything about it.
The liability issue mentioned...does anyone have a case in which an NP working as an RN got sued because s/he didn't do something that they would of as an NP, but didn't because they were working as an RN. I'm just trying to figure that out. If you're working as an RN you don't have privileges to perform NP duties right? I am trained to do things from working in prior specialties that I am not allowed to do now because I'm not credentialed to do so.
