I know a few nurses around and I have been wondering whether it is possible for them to advance their studies and become doctors.

Is there such a possibility?

If you're wondering about nursing classes applying toward medical school, I don't think there's that much overlap. From what others have said, medical school focuses more heavily on science. I would imagine the few nurses who become doctors, however, are much better ones.

I think that you are thinking of Doctor in a very tight view. Any person with a Master's degree is considered a doctor in their field. So, in this light a nurse with a Master's degree in nursing can be a doctor. However, it is possible for a nurse to take more classes and become a medical doctor as well.
