The medical drama Nurses premieres on Telemundo today.
This Colombian telenovela will air from Mondays to Sundays at 21h00.
Nurses also tell a story about love, set against a backdrop of the Santa Rosa University Hospital and the nurses who keep its heart beating.
Santa Rosa does have a hospital in the real world but the story is fictional.
According to Telemundo Nurses explores the difficulties and achievements of a guild of under-recognised, highly sought after but poorly paid professionals who try to overcome their own problems while always giving it their best despite family and work conflicts, rivalries, love and heartbreak.
It also offers an intimate depiction of a group of professionals who weave close relationships of affection between them and their patients, but also of intrigues and envies, in addition to the challenges they face to save the lives of their patients and sometimes their own.
The intrigue centres round Nurse María Clara González (Diana Hoyos), who wants to try to save her flailing marraige. She organises an anniversary date with her husband Roman at a hotel but it turns out to be the date from hell when he has a heart attack.
He gets rushed to hospital, she fusses at his side all night and in the morning a woman arrives with a boy, claiming the child is Román’s.
This sets off a chain of events that involves more heart attacks, two children, a divorce and a deep connection with new Dr Carlos Pérez (Sebastián Carvajal), who’s younger than María.
The action unfolds as a procedural in that each episode revolves around a different hospital case with resolution at the end of each one.
