Nurse was the 3rd overall pick in the OHL draft and represented Canada at the Ivan Hlinka. Giroux was passed over in the OHL draft and had to try-out for Gatineau prior to his draft year. Easy to see why Giroux was unranked.
Nurse was rated #16 by ISS in October
He was rated as an "A" skater by CSS in their Preliminary lists
Honorable mention (top 20) on Bob McKenzie's preseason list
#23 on Craig Button's list from October
Not sure where you're getting this "jump in the rankings" stuff. Has he risen? Yes, but not at the level you are portraying.
