Tv Season Info

The seventh and final season begins with Jackie (Edie Falco) being arrested and suffering through a harrowing stay in a holding cell followed by sedated detox. When she's released, she hires a lawyer to help her keep her job at All Saints. Unfortunately, she can't afford his retainer and returns to old habits for a solution. Upon her return to the hospital, Jackie is back at square one under the Diversion Program and isn't allowed to touch patients or medication, and must undergo daily urine screens. Meanwhile, Coop (Peter Facinelli) prepares for his last day at All Saints and is replaced by Dr. Bernard Prince (Tony Shalhoub), who surprises everyone with his carpe diem attitude. Later, Jackie learns the hospital is being sold to Norwegian developers who plan to close the facility. Jackie then rallies her coworkers in a fight to keep All Saints from going under.

Critic Reviews for Nurse Jackie: Season 7

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (8)

Great nurse. Flawed human being, and an irreparable one. That's also what made her real, and relatable, and what Falco brought so fully to the role -- that gnawing sense of self-doubt, and self-reproof, which spilled over into acts of self-destruction.
