I work at an Urgent Care and they hire Xray techs over LPNs and teach them to do nursing such as giving injections, phlebotomy etc.  Is this legal?  I was let go due to this fact.  It seems that most of the urgent cares and clinics are doing this.  They are pushing LPN's out.  If you are not a Radiology Tech they won't even look at your resume.

If they are working under physician supervision it is definitely legal.
