From the Hospital's history, she is listed as a Nurse:

 

ANNA P. CAINE ("Cainie")

Box 777, Tenafly, N J.

Cainie has a decided personality. You must either like her or dislike her---you cannot ignore her. Diminutive in stature she is the genuine unlacquered article, guaranteed to wear well. She is capable, generous and candid to a fault. Suffice it to say that no obstacle is to her unsurmountable. She gets what she goes after.

Great find on her history. Sounds like she was a fireball as a nurse!
