Interesting chart.

But why does CAP use Nurse Practitioner instead of "Nurse"? Nurses are 65k-ish, and work in summer.

There are all kinds of nurses: RNs, BSNs, CNSs, NPs (w/ specialties FNP, ANP, and NO, they are not "on the same level" as Physician Assistants, nor are they above or below them; different fields). They have different amounts of education and autonomy. Nurse Practitioners often work as primary health care providers and have higher salaries than RNs.

Lisette Partelow: No particular reason. We wanted to show a variety of professions with relatively similar levels of education to teachers.
