if you and your atty don't agree on case strategy then you should find another that will better represent your interests.
you did not post your state so I cannot make any detailed recommendations.
workers comp is voluntary and you can close your case at any time;
it won't delete the records that you had a claim.

it does appear to be a dilemma.
i can't predict what your employer would accept from a medical standpoint to allow you to return you to work.
maybe they've already moved on and will not want to terminate your replacement even with a release.
is there someone in personnel/admin that you can talk to candidly? do you have a union?

it's difficult for me to believe your nursing career is that close to being over. there is a crying need for all kinds of nursing services--even in the bill review case/ management office type settings. health services employment is projected to continue to grow.
is there some additional training that might allow you to transition into a light work role?
work comp does offer a retraining voucher for those with PD

you might be able to get a more realistic view of your job prospects by talking to professional job counselor.

with herniated discs how long could you go before another incident/injury hits you?
you might be looking at a short term solution to a longer term problem.....

there are 3 or 4 nurses that frequent this site. I hope some will stop by in the next few days and offer their perspective.

don't let it drop. try the regional office and go higher if necessary.
"i don't know" is not an acceptable response.

you also have rights for reasonable accommodation under ADA law and anti-discrimination provisions under EEOC
