The New Nurses

SF Film

The year is 1952, and there is a severe shortage of nurses in Denmark. At Fredenslund Hospital, matron Margrethe launches a controversial experiment, in which, for the first time, male students are accepted into the nurse training program. The young soldier Erik persuades Margrethe to let him have a place in the program, and he settles in at the school together with his fellow students. The upper- class girl Anna, in particular, catches his attention. However, not everyone is pleased with this modern experiment of training male nurses. The chief physician and the head nurse are both old-school, and they make life miserable for the young students. Erik, Anna and the other trainees want to make a difference, but they are up against the rigid rules of the hospital, prejudices, and old conventions. Despite busy schedules and rule break- ing, emotions flourish among the students, who, on their nights off, go to the jazz club, or hold discreet parties in their dorm rooms.
