Like good soldiers in a war-zone, hospital staff are expected to respect the chain of command when dealing with life and death situations. But what happens when smug doctors, arrogant surgeons and out of touch administrators make that easier said than done?
Nurses deals with the professional and personal lives of four female colleagues who cope in different ways with the challenges of life on the trauma ward. With determination, strength and a black sense of humor they achieve the demanding and inspiring task of saving lives in a system that sometimes seems designed to do the opposite. Nurses is a primetime medical drama that shows life in a hospital as you have never seen it before.
