In brief: Several

The nurse would ask questions about the pain such as where it is and how severe, measure vital signs such as blood pressure and pulse, and then notify the doctor. Depending on the assessment, the nurse might then give medication such as nitroglycerine or perform tests like an ekg.
The nurse then would follow up to see if the pain improved. Wow, i could be a nurse, i think!

In brief: Yes

A nurse should be able to handle a patient having chest pain, first ask about the quality, location, duration, associated symptoms, time of onset, exacerbating or any relieving symptoms, depending on the patient ekg, cxr, and blood work should be ordered.
Also depending on the cause, sub lingual nitro, oxygen, anti-acids, morphine, can be administered. After you get that information check with md.
