Rather than manually add terms to my approx 1500 nodes, is there a way to programatically add a term to a specific node by node type (e.g add term "item" to nodes of type "page")? Alternatively is there a module that might assist with bulk addition of terms?

Have you tried Views Bulk Operations? It allows you to bulk edit/set fields of specific nodes (you can filter your view by node type).
I'll check that out @argiepiano
You can also use feeds.
You would need some sort of import file... this could be a list of node ID's or titles, then add the Terms
If the Nodes have multiple Terms you can use Feeds Tamper and "Explode" the term.
This will also create new Terms if they don't exist.
