Most medical dramas tend to put nurses in the periphery despite their critical roles in patient care delivery. However, the Canadian drama television series Nurses is changing this narrative. It focuses on nurses and honors their stories by concentrating on their heroic actions.

Nurses series: plot summary
The series focuses on the lives of five young nurses working on the front line of St. Mary's Hospital. It showcases their dedication as they help others and figure out how to help themselves.
Nurses season 1 full story
The series has a different storyline but the same concept in each episode. We are introduced to Grace Knight for the first episode, who we see battling an ethical dilemma. She is treating an attacker who is behind the injuries of several patients who have been brought in after a vehicle-ramming attack.
Elsewhere, Keon Colby makes a single pregnant woman feel less lonely, while Ashley Collins loses much of her excitement working in a hospital after being assigned to call duties. We see Grace in the next episode struggling with the ethical implications of retaining a patient's condition from her family.
Keon links up with his college buddy, whose wife he is treating. Meanwhile, Naz faces embarrassment due to her upbringing since she lacks specific skills. On the other hand, Ashley becomes antagonistic towards Grace after finally discovering why she was let go from her previous job.
We see Grace mediating between the patient's spouse and their son in between the season while adjusting to an unwanted new hospital CEO. We also see Dr. Hamilton making his presence felt in the hospital through a high-stakes medical procedure while trying to shield Naz from a lethal situation.
The season ends in a tense environment, with the battle against Dr. Hamilton reaching the climax. It also ends with Grace in a stretched-tight situation since she has an upcoming operation on an Instagram celebrity.
Was the show Nurses canceled?
Although the show's first season was aired in America on NBC, the second season, however, was not. So, it had fans in the United States asking if the medical drama had been canceled.
No, it was not canceled. Global renewed the second season of the series in early 2020. It also has ten episodes, just like the first season.
However, NBC will never air the second season. This follows a request from the creator of The Resident, Amy Holden Jones, of removing copycat medical drams from the broadcast.
Where can I watch season 2 of Nurses?
In light of this, you may be wondering where you can continue binge-watching this medical drama. Well, you can do so on Netflix.
