Trivia

The East 25th Street entrance of the William and Anita Newman Vertical Campus of Baruch College in the Gramercy section of Manhattan served as the entrance façade of All Saints Hospital at which Nurse Jackie and her colleagues work during the first three seasons. In the fourth season, the hospital's entrance façade was changed to Bellevue Hospital at East 27th Street and First Avenue. See more »

Goofs

Opioids, such as narcotics Jackie uses, secrete through the salivary glands in the mouth. It causes a person's mouth to become dry and bitter tasting. It also causes extremely bad morning breath, as the bitterness secretes over night and concentrates in the mouth. Kevin, Frank, or both, should have noticed this abnormal taste and smell whenever they kissed or woke up beside Jackie, respectively, yet neither of them noticed these tell-tale traits of narcotics use.

An Instant Hit!
2 June 2009 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

I work with Nurses and Edie Falco does Nurse Jackie perfectly. Earthy, gritty, with hard hitting humor and heartbreaking drama. Sure, it may be derivative but it's seriously well done, and realistic, too.

I loved the first episode and they had me five minutes in. That's pretty amazing. I already feel like I've known Nurse Jackie for years, I understand her, I feel what she feels, and I know why she feels that way.

You guys did that with one episode. I'm impressed.

Even the supporting characters seem real, as well as the patients, and nothing comes across as rushed or hurried. The director is taking his time, getting it right.

I'm sure this will be an instant hit.
