'The Nurse' is a gripping and intimate documentary series that follows the daily lives of six nurses, their patients and their communities. Community & Public Health Nurses in Ireland make almost 10,000 house-call s every day.
Much of every working day is spent in the car, driving from one call
to the next. From rural to urban areas, these community nurses work at the frontline of the Health Service. The elderly, the alone, the forgotten in ou r communities, the new mothers and the terminally ill - caring for them is all in a day's work. The commitment and humanity they show is matched only by the
courage, resilience and good humour of their patients - this series is all about life, from the cradle to the grave.
