I'm sure they have a load on their plate, but bottom line is OP's mam should have been consulted and her permission requested before someone plonked their motor in her feckin driveway.
I have experienced a family member dying at home myself. It’s terribly stressful a whole family gathered under those circumstances under one roof, everyone too emotional and exhausted and worrying about work and small children.
Where the nurse parked is not on the list of concerns.
The nurse knows, or should know, that she/he has to make their own arrangements.

OP, I understand why you would give the ill woman's family a pass on this. If they genuinely had no part in telling this nurse she had permission to use your mother's driveway then fair enough. But I would still try and find out who the nurse's employer was, and make a complaint to them about it.

What would happen if you decided to go to your mothers and spend the night.
Agree. Also, what should you mother have an emergency that requires ambulance or worse?

Once a road gets busy enough a certain amount of drivers will park where they know they shouldn't but they think they'll get away with, rather than just parking 2 minutes walk away.

Now that the OP knows his mother's road is at that point he should get gates or a bollard for her front garden because this person parking there won't be the last.

OP, It looks like this nurse is taking advantage of your Mum. Does she not thin that God forbid an ambulance would have to reverse into your Mums driveway. Its a selfish, arrogant stunt to pull and I would be having words with her.

Thanks for all your concern. Look, please don’t be concerned, there’s no danger at all, I just wanted to highlight the total lack of consideration and brass neck attitude that some people carry around all day, and to reassure myself that we weren’t making a fuss over nothing.

That's how these feckers work. They just push their luck and then pretend what they're doing is normal so that the better person backs down for fear of being unreasonable.
