「スル」 in Dictionary Entries

Recently got turned on to Yomichan, which is pretty life changing, and have been prioritizing J-J dictionaries so that J-E definitions are sort of last resort for a word I need to know. I noticed that often with nouns, just following 「名」to signal that it’s a noun, I often see 「スル」just before the definition. Anyone know what that means? I’m sure at my level of study, it’s probably not worth worrying about, but I’m damn curious and people here seem helpful.

It means you can put する after the word to make a verb.
