A message drama--of sorts--from the good graces of Roger Corman's New World film factory. The densely packed story line follows the adventures of three nurses who enter a program at a California hospital and find themselves becoming emotionally involved with the people they encounter.
Every hot social topic of the early 1970s is touched on: A black nurse, Williams, helps a black doctor overcome racism at the hospital via a sit-in; Cannon meets Redfield, the stereotyped crazed Vietnam veteran who needs a little understanding, in addition to a life-saving operation after a
motorcycle accident; Boucher becomes involved with a married doctor and a heroin addict drug dealer. Despite the soap opera-like handling of the story, the film itself isn't all that bad. The cast handles the material competently under some good direction (by a former director of TV's "Peyton
Place"). Water beds were a hot item in the early 1970s, so the sex scenes (with which this film is packed) unashamedly exploits the new craze. Corman Studios released five such nurse films, this being the second.
