New nursing show on Discovery Health

  1. For those of you that have the Discovery Health channel and are interested in peds or NICU, there is a new show that I just watched this morning. It's called "Nurses" and the whole show focused on peds and NICU nursing. Focused on 4 or 5 children and families and walked you through their stories. The thing I was so impressed with is the show is focused on the nurses and their care of the patients, instead of the doctors being in the forefront. There are several more episodes scheduled to air in the next few weeks, so I'm not sure if this is just a "filler" or if it will be a continuing series. Anyway, thought some of you might be interested. I love this channel and watch it constantly, but am so glad to finally see a show that puts the nurses in the forefront!:chuckle

    I think that this is the same show that I watch last year shortly before Christmas. One of the nurses had short blonde hair and she had two ped patients going in for surgery and one died? Is this the same one you watched? Anyway I tivoed it and there were no other episodes scheduled. Sad because I really liked the show too.

    I missed about 10 minutes of the show, but didn't see where one of the patients died? Maybe it was another episode? Now I'm disappointed! I got so excited thinking this was a new series on nurses. Sounds like it's just temporary. There are several other shows that focus on residents and interns, "a day in the life..." and they are enjoyable to watch, but I'd personally much rather watch something along the lines of "a day in the life of a nurse", especially if they took nurses from different areas of the hospital and followed them through their day - ER, ICU, OR, etc. Doesn't that sound like a wonderful idea for a series?!:chuckle Who knows, I might even send an e-mail to Discovery Health and suggest it. Can't hurt, huh?
