Is this the equivalent of the English "nurse"? From what I'm getting by the definitions, it says something like "A female person who works in a hospital, nursing home, or similar insitution." but this wouldn't really consitute an actual nurse, so I'm just wondering if it's a different expression or if the definition needs some work done.

The Dutch definitions begins by "A female person whose work is taking care of people..."
It seems to this "taking care of" (verzorgen, in the German definition pflegen) is not specific enough. A nurse seems to be a highly qualified person, not everyone who takes care of the sick.
Zuster is a female nurse. The general Dutch term is verpleegkundige. Andres 23:05, 5 November 2006 (CET)
