Celebrities with a nursing background:

Indie singer keshi (real name: Casey Luong) is known for songs like "2 soon" and "like i need u". ICYDK, he used to work as a nurse before finding success in the music industry. In an interview with Vice, keshi shared that he has been making music as 'keshi' since college, but that it was "an alias that nobody knew was me." He was still working his day job as a nurse while simultaneously releasing music, until one day, he decided to quit.
