A Rather Weak Entry into the "Nurse Series"
14 April 2015 | by Uriah43See all my reviews

In this movie, which is the 4th film in the "Nurse Series", three young nurses are all trying to make a difference at a local hospital. The first nurse named "Kitty" (Jeane Manson) is a pretty blonde who takes a liking to one of her patients and tries to make sure that he doesn't aggravate an injury he sustained in a boating accident. The second nurse, "Michelle" (Angela Gibbs) has discovered that a patient of hers has died from a drug overdose and decides to investigate where he obtained the drugs. The third nurse by the name of "Joanne" (Ashley Porter) recognizes that there is an extreme shortage of doctors in the hospital and in the course of her duties takes on some of their responsibilities even though she lacks the necessary credentials. Now obviously the plot is a bit unrealistic and suffice to say the movie suffers as a result. Likewise, several of the scenarios were a trifle clichéd and were more or less rehashed from the other films in the series. Additionally, although I thought Ashley Porter--and to a lesser extent Jeane Manson--were nice additions to the scenery, neither of them were really able to bring this film up to even an average rating. In short, I consider this to be a rather weak entry into the "Nurse Series" and I have rated it accordingly. Below average.
