If this is something akin to a doctor's office, but staffed by a nurse
instead of a doctor, I'd suggest healthcare=nurse. It's a parallel
structure to healthcare=doctor, healthcare=dentist, healthcare=midwife,
etc. It's not in the wiki, but it is the most popular tag and IMO
The healthcare=office + office=nurse combo I'm not so keen on. Obviously
"doctor's office" and even "nurse's office" are common phrases in
English, but in OSM I feel that healthcare=office implies that it's an
administrative office not a location where patients are treated.
