I am a nurse and have to sometimes expose the ‘Awrah (including private parts) of the opposite sex. Is this Islamically permissible?

You are exempt from restrictions that apply toward others due to the sensitive role you carry in your service to people.
You are being highly rewarded by Allah for taking on such a position in a society that many others refrain from.
As long as you don’t intentionally allow yourself to see or expose the ‘awrah of the opposite or same sex, for that matter, you should be fine and not sinful.
May Allah swt reward you immensely for the noble job you carry yourself with.
