Nursing school? Too expensive -- who needs it? GAMEINVEST has announced that it will be bringing "nurse sim" Emergency Hospital to Xbox LIVE Arcade and PC on November 26.
Formerly known as Sarah's Emergency Room, the title will put players in control of the ambitious (and sexy -- rowr!) young nurse Sarah who "accepts a mysterious management position at a small hospital in Arkansas." We're not sure what's so mysterious about it, as we see no sign of Josef Mengele-like experiments appearing in Emergency Room.
Sarah will be doing things that aren't so mysterious, like diagnosing patients, prescribing meds, and running herself ragged between the waiting and operating rooms. For fans of time-management sims and sore throats, Emergency Hospital looks like the thing for you.
Press release after the jump.
