Every nurse is a hero in our eyes, but we know many nurses wish they could have some superhero abilities to make their jobs a little easier! We asked our Facebook fans to come up with their superhero nurse names and special powers; read on for their hilarious, touching and very practical answers! And if one of your fellow nurses is an everyday hero, nominate him or her for the California Casualty “Hero of the Month” award and your nurse will be entered to win a $10,000 luxury cruise. After all, even superheroes need a little R&R every once in awhile!
