What's the difference between the verb SER and ESTAR in Spanish?

The verb SER indicates a quality that is not likely to change and the verb ESTAR indicates a quality that is likely to change. Example:
Rosa es enfermera. (A condition that won't change)
Rose is a nurse.
Rosa esta enferma. (A condition that will change)
Rose is sick.
