In the news: New nurse drama to air on NBC this fall

Stressed Out Nurses Weekly, May 11, 2009

Medical TV shows, such as ER, Grey's Anatomy, and Scrubs, have often painted nurses in an inaccurate light. Now it might be time for a little Mercy.

Mercy, a one-hour drama set to air on NBC this fall, will follow the happenings of the hospital through three nurses, one of whom just returned from a tour in Iraq. NBC will also include digital features, including a "Test Your Nursing Skills" quiz with real first aid questions and answers and an "On Duty" board full of character's profiles.

The producers and writers from the show come from notable series, including Friday Night Lights, 30 Rock, and Rescue Me.
