Nurse doesn't translate into "Honey Sister". Мед is short for Медік which is someone who has a background in medicine. E.g. a nurse, doctor, surgeon etc.

    Honey Sister

    How can I unlearn this? Now I'm going to see honey sisters in every медсестра :o

    BTW it's ме́дик (not медік).

    Медсестра as 'medsister' is quite easy to remember tho
