i wish my sister did that :(

I put "the nun is bringing an orange" and it was incorrect, though the translation says that schwester means sister, nun or nurse...

You are right. My first thought was of a nurse. But while in colloquial language it is all three, more exactly a nurse is a Krankenschwester and a nun is a Klosterschwester (oder Nonne).
