    Nursing is not known as a highly-paid or easy profession
    The median income for a Registered Nurse in the US is about 55K/year. That's not exactly highly paid, but it's not too shabby. Nurses with advanced training can make much, much more. Nurses in administration can make even more. The median income for an LVN/LPN is about 40K/year. CNAs make much less, with a median income of about 25K. That is certainly not highly paid.

    I'd be interested to know what kind of "nurse" this person was. I highly doubt it was an RN or even an LVN. I suspect this was a CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant).
