    Comma in Nurses' Meeting


    At work we have a regular meeting for all the registered nurses. When writing about this meeting, do I refer to it as nurses' meetings or just simply nurses meeting? The same goes for dentists' meetings or dentists meeting? It is for the whole group of nurses/dentists and not for one individual.

    Many thanks

    Welcome to the forums.

    You are talking about an apostrophe not a comma

    I would use the apostrophe.
    At the nurses' meeting today, ...

    (I think you know this, but nurse's would be one nurse, while nurses' is multiple nurses.)

    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
