Student nurses get their turn on TV

  • 10 Comments

ITV has commissioned a new series called “Nurses To Be”, which will follow the lives of student nurses.

The TV production company Twofour has announced that it has been commissioned to produce the new documentary for ITV.

The company said the series would feature a range of students at different stages in their training to give an “authentic insight” into their lives and the “pressures, emotions and challenges they face, both in the classroom and on the wards”.

Melanie Leach, Twofour’s managing director, said: “Britain’s nurses are today’s frontline heroes and becoming one takes a special kind of character.

“In following their preparation for their days on the wards we are guaranteed a fascinating journey told with honesty, humour and compassion.”

It is the latest documentary series to focus on the nursing profession, but the first to look specifically at students.

It follows Channel 4’s “Confessions of a Nurse” and Channel 5’s “Nurses”, which is currently being broadcast on Wednesday’s and documents the lives of nurses at Cardiff and Vale University Trust.

  • I wish they would bring back the 'Angels ' show from the 70's. I used to love watching that just before I joined up myself. I remember thinking how smart they all looked with their caps and belts on. Nothing like we look like today!

  • I'm waiting for a fly on the wall documentary about a TV production company. It'll be meta.

  • I hope it is portrayed realistically. We all know how television can adapt situations to suit I wonder how much say the NHS has over what is aired?

  • This isn't new. There was one of these in the late 90's on - I think - BBC2.
