Question is in the thread topic. I see "nodes" referenced in many posts. How are they different from miners?

Each block is stacked on top of the previous one. Adding another block to the top makes all lower blocks more difficult to remove: there is more "weight" above each block. A transaction in a block 6 blocks deep (6 confirmations) will be very difficult to remove.

Anyone participating in the network is a "node". That's a generic term.
The term miners applies only to those trying to generate blocks.
