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)
Breast-feeding - transitivity
There seem to be two forms of this, so we might need another sense line (or the ambitransitive gloss). A mother can nurse, and a baby can also nurse, e.g.

- The mother can use massage/compression to increase the flow of milk, which will stimulate the baby to nurse actively again.
