A nurse is a trained health professional who cares for people who are ill, injured or infirm, but who is not a physician.

This tag is used to map a facility where one nurse or several nurses provided healthcare services for patients, but where a physician is not regularly available.

  • See amenity=doctors or amenity=clinic for outpatient medical facilities where a physician (medical doctor) is available.
  • See amenity=health_post for a healthcare facility where there is no nurse or doctor available.
  • See healthcare=midwife for a health professional who provides prenatal care and delivers babies.

How to map

Set a node node placed at the centrepoint of the building, or draw as an area area drawn around the perimeter of the building.

Add healthcare=nurse and name=*.
