Similar to Myers how? Comparing them in their draft years, they're both very raw, but the play style is pretty different. Nurse is much more physical, where Myers really tried (and tries still) to use his reach and his stick more than his body. Nurse has also shown more offensively to date than Myers had before he was drafted (only 19pts in his draft year, then a burst up to 42 the year following).
I think a bit of Bambi-legs/clumsiness has to be expected with big kids like that; it will take them time to grow into their frames and move around comfortably. (I remember a pre-draft interview with Myers where he said he'd know when he'd grown another inch because he would just start tripping over his own feet all the time on the ice.)
