Still wrong. Nurses give constant care to someone who is ill and may not be able to survive on their own. A professional sports player, who works solely to entertain, makes more than 5x the amount a Nurse makes per season. They do most of the labor for the other healthcare providers, but still do not make nearly as much as they do. If anything, I would think that Nurses should make more for all of the work that they do on a day-to-day basis.
Professional sports players, also overpaid, are far, far more rare than a nurse. Like 1 in 20000 people, probably less, is even capable
of becoming a professional sports player.
By contrast, nurses make more than just about every other healthcare provider unless that position requires a doctorate. They make more than occupational, physical, and behavioral therapists, speech pathologists, clinical laboratory scientists, radiologists, EMTs, dietitians, social workers, epidemiologists, sleep pathologists, behavior analysts, medical technologists, alcohol and drug counselors, etc. I work in health care, and to say that nurses do most of the labor for other healthcare providers is complete bullshit. All healthcare providers work very hard to supply care to people in their area of expertise, and they all do it on a day-to-day basis.
None of this is to denigrate nurses. They're essential and do work that all of us can be thankful for. But the fact of the matter is that if you want a lucrative career in healthcare, and you don't want to go to school for 8+ years to receive a doctorate, you should be a nurse. An RN that went to school for 2 - 4 years will typically make more than any other healthcare provider that went to school for 6 years, unless that person is a doctor that trained for over 10 years.
