Nurse was a terrific show. It was about a woman who went back to
nursing after her husband, who was a physician, died of a massive
coronary. After his death she reluctantly decided to go back to work. She
took the position at a big New York hospital as the head nurse.
The series centered around the everyday goings on inside of the
hospital from the perspective of the head nurse. Problems with junior
staff and the nasty attitudes of the doctors made up some of the plots. It
also showed the difficulties of balancing a challenging position with a
The building of her relationship with her new friend Dr. Rose, whom at
the beginning she had a very hard time getting along with no matter what
she did or tried to please him, was a central theme. But as the show moved
on they became good friends. Her fellow nurses that came to love and
respect her. Because of her marriage to a doctor for so long she was able
to maintain some very wealthy friends.
I loved the show and was very sadden when they decided to cancel the
show. Ms. Learned was a terrific actress and played her roll very well. I
wish I could find the series I would have loved to have had it in my own
private library at home. I was there number one fan. It helped me realize
what nursing was all about. And that's why I became a nurse.
