Doctor vs. nurse

We are trying to get my daughter's diabetes under control.  She is running high, in the 300s most of the time.  The pediatric Endo doc told us to take her level after school, at 3:30, and give her a correction of insulin if needed.  We also take her level at dinner, 5:00 pm to 5:30, and give her insulin to cover the dinner carbs.  Today a visiting nurse came to the house after school and when told us if we give our daughter a correction at 3:30 we cannot give her dinner at 5:00 pm but must wait  three hours after we give the insulin.  This is not what the doctor said.  What should we do?
