Set in Toronto and stationed in every tendril of a busy downtown trauma centre, Nurses sees five recent graduates beginning their careers in a high-stakes hospital with pressure cooker training.
Forming an inextricable bond, the nurses struggle to find a work-life balance that matches and counters the intensity of their new job.
Their interaction with patients, relatives and staff quickly leads them to the discovery that nursing isn't just about biology, chemistry and anatomy - it's also about psychology, compassion and romantic complications.
The nurses include Grace Knight, a young nurse looking for a fresh start, until someone from her past turns up who could jeopardise her career; and Ashley Collins, a wild and unapologetic adrenaline junky who lives for the fast pace of the hospital.
Then there's Keon Colby, a former college football star who's trying to prove he's more than he was on the field; and Nazneen Khan, a whip-smart daughter of a wealthy family in India who moved to Canada to reinvent herself and is now starting her first job ever.
Rounding out the nurses is Wolf Burke, soft hearted and playful, but with a secret that may find him in over his head.
Along with the young team of nurses, there is Sinead O'Rourke, the head nurse and den mother of the new graduates; and Dr. Evan Wallace, the charming and attractive head of the ER who gets all the nurses' attention – especially Grace's.
There's also Nicola Correia-Damude as Dr. Vanessa Banks, the magnetic OBGYN with a cutting wit who never lets Keon forget a mistake.
