The Best and Worst Nursing Jobs in DC Comics

D. Anthony Thomas - 07/25/19

 In 2019, it’s safe to say that DC ain’t Marvel. The original superhero universe and home of Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman, has perhaps just as many fans. They also have a strong media presence. Hit movies?  Check.  Their own streaming network?  Check. Still, they’re solidly in second place when it comes to the popular craving for sueprheroics on screens both big and small.  We here at Nursing CE really don’t care to get into why that is.  We just want to know where the cool nursing jobs are.  Without further ado, here are the best and worst nursing jobs available in DC Comics. 

The Best:

1. Themyscira (Paradise Island)

Backstory – Straight out of Greek mythology comes the hidden slice of heaven known as Themysicra.  This cloaked island in the Aegean Sea shows no signs of modern technology because…well, magic.  However, there is also no crime, no signs of disease, and no men.  Like it says in the parentheses, it’s paradise.

This guy is having the time of his life.  

Pros – Affordable vacations to Greece and various spots in the Mediterranean; Very treatable injuries from ancient war games and combat training

Cons – Lack of medical equipment means that technically, you wouldn’t be a nurse.  Are you into sorcery?  

2. The Waverider

Backstory – The Waverider is a timeship from the distant future.  It includes technology that quickly materializes new, functioning limbs and synthesizes medicine and vaccines in the blink of an eye.  Surgeries to injections, the ship’s advanced artificial intelligence program basically does all the work.  You would only need to jump in the tech is malfunctioning…  

Pros – LOTS of free time; access to all of history and the future.

Cons – The assorted crew members are “door nail” dumb.  Prepare to be stranded in the Paleolithic age and oppressive possible futures due to totally avoidable human error.  

The Worst:

3. Central City

Backstory – The picture above tells you all you need to know.  Central City may be the home of the hero known as The Flash.  However, it’s also home to scientific experimentation run amok.  Thanks to STAR Labs, the fiery hellscape/particle physics laboratory captured above, a significant percentage of the city’s residents developed super powers.  Of course, too many of these individuals are maniacs. 

Pros – You may get your own super powers.  Tons of job security due to non-stop, super combat in the streets.     

Cons – Hospitals and doctors’ offices stay packed due to non-stop super combat in the streets.  

4. Gotham City

Backstory – If you’re living and breathing, you know this place.  You’ve seen a movie or two.  Your kid has the toys.  Now ask yourself, do you remember ever saying “Boy, I wish I could live there”?

Pros - ...

Cons – Just about everything.

Do you really want to run into her in the parking lot at the end of the night shift?
