Sonic Nurse is an album by Sonic Youth, released on June 7, 2004. The cover art was made by renowned artist Richard Prince from his notorious Nurse Paintings series. Furthermore, one of Prince's photographic creations in this series is entitled "Dude Ranch Nurse" which is also the name of a song on this record.
