Jackie Peyton is a sharp-tongued and quick-witted nurse who is trying to survive the chaotic grind of saving lives in a hectic New York City hospital. Jackie's a woman of substance who knows how to handle it all. With a white lie here, a bent rule there, and a steady dose of pain relievers for her chronic back pain, Jackie does whatever it takes to get the job done.

“Do you think there's a finite amount of pain in the world? Like, if I take the thorn out of someone's hand, does that pain have to go somewhere else?”
“Yes. That's why there's drugs.”

Jackie is a former alcoholic turned superb nurse. But what do you call a nurse with a back injury? Unemployed. So Jackie gets through her shift with the help of a little oxycontin. Not only does she go above and beyond the call of duty, she’s dealing with a dumb handsy doctor, an overzealous newbie nurse, and a hospital administrator who is constantly chasing her down for some reason or another. Sure, she's flawed and human, but she cares more about her patients than the average RN and certainly more than the docs. And that's what makes Nurse Jackie a wonderful Robin Hood-style antihero, doling out vigilante justice in her pretty blue scrubs. She may be high, but so are heavenly saints -- it's all about perspective. I loved this first season, every performance, every second. I very highly recommend it.

recommended by my cousin. Reminds me of "Six Feet Under" for shocking drama, "Grey's Anatomy" for the hospital-soap-opera theme (only this is far more intelligent). Much to my surprise, tough addict Jackie is totally loveable. I think any working woman could relate!

The producers should have done more research on this half the stuff Jackie pulls off is really not possible in a real hospital.
