Not allowed: The nurse or ekg tech are not allowed to interpret ekgs, so can only tell you that the test was completed properly to allow the dr to interpret it. That said, most nurses can read ekgs quite well, and if any major issue noted, would have taken it right to the dr then or called him/her for instructions. Don't worry too much waiting for friday.

Nurse did right : Nurse is not supposed to tell you but your doctor, if some thing bad nurse might have shown to your doctor, and a serious problem they might have taken care of you as urgent basis already, best way is to call your doctor to find out the results.
