It's an old-fashioned term -- my mother, who earned her RN in 1933 (or
was it 1936??) always referred to it as nurses' training. 

I think this is really a semantics issue -- I hope no one doubts the
long hours of education and hard work of practice that goes into a
nursing degree. 

If it's any comfort, I've also heard people talk of teacher training too
-- I don't take offense, because I KNOW most people wouldn't last an
hour in my job -- and any time someone derides teachers, I invite them
to do just that -- they turn tail VERY quickly!
