Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Beautiful young women, all living together in one apartment in various states of undress: Yes, we're in Aaron Spelling country again. Made for TV, Nightingales is set in Los Angeles, and centers upon the lives and loves of eight toothsome student nurses. Just to prove that this isn't real life, each nurse has a "past" straight out of the paperback romances (one young lady is the target of a syndicate hit man!) Professional nursing associations had a field day chipping away at the inaccuracies inherent in Nightingales, but the ratings were such that this pilot film graduated into a series in January of 1989. Sensing that few of the eight leading ladies had star potential (with the possible exception of Kristy Swanson), the series added as "cast insurance" Suzanne Pleshette as the director of student nursing, and Barry Newman as the hospital chief of staff.
