    absolutely not. E&M levels are always provider levels (physician, NP, PA), the 99211 is referred to as a "nurse" level but truely it is not. It is a provider level that the provider is allowed to charge when a qualified ancillary staff member is the one face to face with the patient carrying out the physicians orders, while the provider is in the immediate office suite area.
