Kelly Worked As A Nurse To Pay Her Bills

Actress MINKA KELLY became a Los Angeles nurse so she could pay her bills while she was chasing her modelling dreams.
The caring star didn't want to waste time waiting tables while she went for talent auditions and so she spent a year working at a hospital.
She says, "I was a receptionist at this doctor's office and I became friends with this scrub nurse there because I was fascinated by the surgery and I wasn't squeamish. I got fired from that job... and I learned that going to school to be a scrub nurse was just over a year.
"I became a surgical technician, a scrub nurse... I worked a six-month externship at California Hospital."

Please don't confuse surgical technician with a scrub nurse. It is not the same thing, and you do a disservice to both by interchanging terms. A nurse completes anywhere from 2-4 years for a degree in nursing. A surgical technician completes a coursework for a certificate. I suppose it is easier to type nurse in your headline than it is to be accurate.

A scrub tech is NOT a nurse, hence the education. They hand instruments to a surgeon...that's it. It takes a minimum of 18 months and a maximum of 4 years to become either an LPN/LVN or RN.
