    Can a podiatrist become a nurse? Im guessing you have to give up your licensce before going to nursing school or perhaps any other healthcare career such as PA school. Anyone one with any knowledge on this?

    It is not a issue. Why not?

    There is no reason at all, and forget the rubbish about licence. I have never known this, though I have has dozens go in the other direction. And at the risk of being patronising, which is not my intention, it is my belief that they are better pods for being a nurse first. I am thinking particularly of the remote area nurses that we use in remote Ozz - forgive this, they are nearly Docs. I have had several pods that have become Docs - and do their own nail surgery, There is one in particular I am thinking about that did Pod when I was at Western Sydney, is now a GP in Adelaide. I have a degree in geology as well and being a podiatrist (and an anatomist): does that mean I have to hand in my licences? I don't think so
