"Nurse Jackie" is a half-hour comedy that is at turns wicked, heartbreaking and funny. Edie Falco stars as the title character Jackie O'Hurley, a strong-willed and brilliant -- but very flawed -- emergency room nurse in a complicated New York City hospital. A lapsed Catholic with an occasional weakness for Vicodin and Adderall to get her through the days, Jackie keeps the hospital balanced with her own kind of justice. Every day is a high wire act of juggling patients, doctors, fellow nurses and her own indiscretions.
After her confrontation with Eddie, Jackie has cut ties with him and is determined to spend more time with her family. At All Saints, she deflects blame about the narcotic shortage and endures Sam, the altered nurse and his newfound sobriety.
