    "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.

    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.
