Can I fire the nurse who is following me around?

Can I fire the nurse who is following me around? Yes.  There is no duty under Iowa law to cooperate with a nurse who has been hired by the insurance company to tag along on your medical appointments.  Most doctors find these nurses to be incredibly irritating and they generally get in the way of doctor/patient communication.  Some of these nurses are professional and can actually help but the moment you sense that the nurse is working on an insurance company agenda, or is doing things to cast you in a bad light with your doctor, FIRE THEM.  Most of our clients are adults and have never needed a nurse to go to any doctor appointment since their mother quit going.  So why do you need a nurse now?  These nurses show up and claim they are there to help you.  Hold them to that promise and when they break that promise... FIRE THEM!
