I saw on the Meta thread that questions just keep recurring unless they are answered. So here's one reply to an especially challenging qu, that might take it out of circulation :)

Nurses use physics to deal with advanced technology, electrical measurements, sound waves and radiography; nurse anesthetists must learn how the gases they use work and how flow rates affect overall patient outcomes; and surgical nurses rely on certain aspects of physics to operate equipment and perform calculations regarding the care and safety of a patient.

That's probably a complete under statement of how nurses use physics, and hopefully not an insult to nursing, but I claim that it is the only answer Socratic will ever garner :))
