Chronology
Related shows House M.D.

Nurse Jeffrey is a miniseries which is a spin-off from the American medical drama series House M.D. The series focuses around the eponymous character Jeffrey, who is a minor character in House.[1]

The first season features thirteen episodes (or appisodes), each about three minutes in length. The episodes were initially only accessible as part of the inHouse app from iTunes, for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices. They were later made available on the Fox Broadcasting Company's website.

Background

Nurse Jeffrey, played by Patrick Price, is one of the few male nurses at Princeton-Plainsboro Hospital, the primary location for House M.D. He had been featured in the sixth season episode "Ignorance Is Bliss", where the character is subjected to taunts by House about the fact that he is a nurse (a job often erroneously associated with women).

Plot

The appisodes take the form of a video blog with Jeffrey speaking to the camera about his plans to bring down Dr. Gregory House (played by Hugh Laurie in the original series). In his "Bitch Log", Jeffrey tracks down members of staff at Princeton-Plainsboro Hospital who he believes have information about illicit activities House may have been involved in.

Most of the characters featured in the show are minor characters in House, however Lisa Edelstein appears as Lisa Cuddy in the final appisode.[2]

Nurse Jeffrey was made available from May 24, 2010 as a feature of the new House application, inHouse, exclusively available for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.[1] A new appisode was made available for download each week for 13 weeks.[2]

On August 16, 2010, all of the appisodes were added to the official Fox website for streaming.[2]
