    "work alongside"="work with"?

    Do the sentence 1 mean as same as sentence 2?

    1."Junior nurses usually work alongside more senior nurses.(Original sentence)"


    2.Junior nurses usually work with more senior nurses.

    2.Junior nurses usually work with more senior nurses.
    They could mean the same, but#1 stresses that they work in very close proximity, doing the work together. This is not necessarily so with #1.

    #2 could be used of situation in which junior nurses are working on a project which they discuss with more senior nurses at regular intervals; #1 could not be used of that.

    May I ask a question here?
    Could the words in blue be 'junior nurses'?

    Yes, and it should be. Thank you. I am about to change it.

    Sorry.
