Rosie Dixon – Night Nurse is a 1978 British comedy film directed by Justin Cartwright and starring Debbie Ash, Carolyne Argyle, Beryl Reid and John Le Mesurier.[2] It was based on a novel by Christopher Wood.

A new student nurse arrives at a hospital, attracting interest from the staff with comic consequences. The film was one of several soft sex comedies released in the 1970s to cash in on the success of the Confessions series (also written by Wood under the pseudonym 'Timothy Lea'). Like the Confessions films it was adapted from a book, the author's credit going to the fictional Rosie herself. Nine Rosie Dixon novels were published, but only the first was adapted into a movie. The character of Penny Sutton – Rosie's best friend in the movie and in the books – was the star of an earlier series of similar novels that depicted Penny as an airline stewardess.

The film stars Debbie Ash, better known as one of the dance troupe Hot Gossip, along with her sister Leslie Ash (later a TV star in her own right) as Rosie's sister Natalie.
