Re: An appointment with nurse/a nurse/the nurse
I have heard it, especially from people in lower-income groups. Some small practices have more than one doctor available during surgery hours, but only one practice nurse. People need to specify the name of the doctor with whom they have an appointment, but not that of the nurse. Most people would say 'the nurse' or, if they know the name, 'Nurse Roberts', but some do just say 'Nurse'. I wrote 'Nurse' with a capital letter, because it seems to be used almost as a name.
