Nurse Jackie (2009)

Edie Falco as "Jackie Peyton"

Emergency room nurse Jackie Peyton does everything she can to provide her patients with the best care possible while navigating the waters of a crumbling health-care system. But she has a secret that is increasingly difficult to keep from people -- she relies on Vicodin and Adderall to get her through high-stress shifts at a New York hospital, where she isn't above bending the rules to keep things running smoothly in the face of indifferent doctors, penny-pinching bean counters and miles of bureaucratic red tape.
