I am trying to come up with another word that can be used as a title for a nurse. For example, people who hold doctoral degrees (mostly MDs and PhDs) use the title 'doctor' and physicians use the word 'doctor' as a substitute for the term 'physician.' Any ideas or comments?
Doctor is an honorific for people who hold an academic doctorate of some kind. Doctor of Medicine, Doctor of Psychology. The honorific for a nurse is "Nurse", and is typically regarded as old fashioned and is not typically used anymore. Pulmonological (talk) 03:46, 5 April 2012 (UTC)
