    I never watched Nurse Jackie but I do know that many people enjoy it. Do you get anything from watching Nurse Jackie or similar nursing shows?

    I used to like the show Mercy which only lasted for a year.

    That was a year before starting nursing school. Do nurses really have hot, fast sex with doctors in supply rooms in real life like on these shows? LOL

    I actually enjoy the show, but don't seek to find anything accurate related to the field of medicine. I also separate the 'nurse' from the 'drug addiction'. Just like we all know nurses don't have steamy quickies in supply closets, they don't all have addictions to opiates.

    I enjoy watching the show. I don't make it a thing of real life nor I watch it to learn something from it. I watch it because it's a good tv series. Some people watch "Mad men" and I don't see what's the hype with the show. It's a matter of taste.

    I like the show although I'm not caring as much for Season 4. Nor do I care much for the character Jackie as much as I used to. I just wish some of the other characters were utilized some more this season but they almost seem like a backdrop.

    I like season 4 better because there is finally some consequences and how she's changing. Before it was like "lalala stealing drugs doing drugs I get away with everything and blame it on someone else." Sure its funny but eventually the stuff has to hit the fan

    I love the show, just because soon I'll be a nurse and can relate to some of the issues that come up , but I really learn from House, even though it's not exactly a nursing show.

    Nurse Jackie is one of the worst shows ever if you are looking for a realistic portrayal of nursing - or anything else.

    However, as a TV show, it is very entertaining and I purchase the series on DVD every year.

    WKRP had little to do with radio. MASH had almost nothing to do with the Korean War. I certainly don't put NJ in the same category of those two shows, but it's purpose is to entertain, not inform.
