Playwright sees nurse following bowel disorder (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

ibsen

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'playwright' is the definition.
(Ibsen is an example)

'nurse following bowel disorder' is the wordplay.
'nurse' becomes 'sen' (I've seen this in other clues).
'following' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'bowel disorder' becomes 'ib' (I can't explain this - if you can you should give a lot more credence to this answer).
'sen' after 'ib' is 'IBSEN'.

'sees' is the link.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for ibsen that I've seen before include "'Ghosts' writer", "famous Norwegian", "Norwegian playwright, d. 1906", "Is Ben a playwright?", "Linesman".)
