MTV recently announced its new slate of shows set to debut in September, and one of its new reality shows might actually interest you! Titled Nurse Nation, the series will follow real travel and agency nurses setting up camp at their brand-new hospitals.

Here’s MTV’s teaser for the show:

Nurse Nation is a new docu-series that follows nine twenty-something travel nurses all assigned to work at a new hospital in a brand new city for 13 weeks. Some of them have been doing this for years, while others are on their first tour. Cameras will be there every step of the way as they take on the unique challenges and intense pressures of working in the medical profession as they face life or death decisions every day. But it’s not ‘all work and no play.’ On days off, they take advantage of all that their host city has to offer, meet new people and potential new loves while often trying to keep previous relationships and friendships alive. It’s the ultimate ‘work-hard/play-hard’ lifestyle.”

There have been fictional series about nurses before (hello, Nurse Jackie fans!), but this is the first major reality series about the nursing profession. No additional details or a premiere date have been announced, but we can’t wait to tune in and see what it’s all about. You can follow the show here.
