What is a “Regular” Nurse?

This has been bothering me ever since I heard it on the news recently.  A nursing rep was commenting on two nurses just killed in a crash of their air ambulance.  She said, “They were not just regular nurses.  They both had really high standards.  They took [nursing] very seriously.” I’m bothered because most “regular” nurses I’ve known in my life, as a frequent patient, relative of a beloved patient, or friend, have had high standards and take their work seriously.  That woman’s comment demeaned all nurses!
