In brief: Get the facts

All fair-minded people respect nurses, and in fact they do much more than we doctors do to keep sick people alive and comfortable day-to-day.
If you have real ventricular tachycardia, it'll take your breath away at best, and your physician (not the nurse) will have told you about it already and initiated appropriate treatment. Any doubts, get a second physician's opinion.
