Based on the same-titled manga on a newbie nurse, Misora Aoi and the problems she encounters in medical work.
Aoi Misora is a third-year nurse at a prestigious hospital. After she is involved in trouble at the Emergency Center, she is transferred to a medical ward of an affiliated hospital. Unlike her previous workplace, the medical ward is a crucial place where patients who survived the emergency room must be looked after with extreme care. But it’s also a place for dishonest and unskilled doctors. Moreover, it is also a place for cozy ties between politicians and doctors, where the priority is not patient care but profit.
Still, Aoi puts every effort forward to take care of patients with her heart and soul. The harder she tries, the more she is alienated from the proud doctors. But with the support of another nurse, Kyoko Komine, and also Dr. Takagi, Aoi succeeds in changing the minds of those around her.

If it wasn't for Yanagiba Toshiro, I would not have bothered to finish this show. Satomi Ishihara's chracter was a little to sweet for me to relate to so I could not see how she was a real character in the show. Yanagiba steals the show and I will look forward to seeing more of his work.

||Nice Change in Pace for Ishihara, & a New Look [Rating: 6/10]
A better step up for Ishihara, I wouldn't say it was a great drama, but it did give me more respect for her. I don't know if I recommend it much, but it is a nice quaint, funny drama. Yanagiba was a good pick as the doctor and Nishimura was an excellent villain, though his hair made me laugh a bit.
This was Koyama's debut as an actor and at first he's acting seemed a little...slurred, but it got better as he got more speaking parts.
All in all I'm not sure if it's the perfect drama, but it's a drama filled with hope..and some tears.

||Surprisingly Good! [Rating: 8/10]
Nurse Aoi follows the same concept as Gokusen and GTO in that it's about a newcomer venturing into a hostile environment, where the newcomer has to face conflicts with his/her colleagues and also with those he/she is in charge of. The difference is that in Nurse Aoi, it's not a teacher, but a nurse.
Satomi-chan is brilliant in this drama, and definitely shows a level of maturity. This girl can definitely act and the drama benefits not only from her skills, but also by the other actors. The casting was very good.
The drama itself gets boring some times, but I still believe it's a good watch. It's not overly dramatic (although perhaps unrealistic at times), and only a scant few episodes are tear-jerkers. It's just a good view of the workplace, and anyone with a job or career will sympathize with the plot and Satomi-chan's character.
The comedic elements are delicious, the dramatic elements are realistic, and the quality of the drama overall is rich. Well done!

||touching. worth watchin [Rating: 8/10]
Ns'Aoi is really worth watchin you know! though it might not be as sad as 1 litre of tears, Ns'Aoi has it's own really touching moments. A little ciche, still good
I have to say Ns'Aoi is lack of romance, it was focused on Ishihara Satomi so you'll probably consider the NEWS guy Koyama (Kei?) as a cameo...

||Nurse A minus [Rating: 8/10]
Some great moments at the beginning and at the end. The middle will put you to sleep, but once you wake up, this dorama will make you feel like it was worth watching. Yanagiba Toshiro wins a prize for overacting and another prize for good acting when not overacting.
