Nurse Marjorie is a 1920 American silent film drama produced and distributed by Realart Pictures, directed by William Desmond Taylor, and starring Mary Miles Minter. It is based on a 1906 play, Nurse Marjorie, by Israel Zangwill. The scenario is by Julia Crawford Ivers whose son James Van Trees was the cinematographer. On the Broadway stage Minter's part was played by Eleanor Robson. This is one of Minter's later films that survive at the Library of Congress.


Actors Kate Lester and Edward Jobson are not listed in the cast, main or uncredited, but they appear noticeably in the film.


As described in a film magazine, Lady Marjorie Killonan (Minter), who has devoted her time to nursing the poor, startles her parents by announcing that she is to enter a hospital that caters to the well-to-do. At the hospital she insists that her identity be shielded. Her first two patients are John Danbury, M.P. (Fillmore), and Dick Allen (Lee), a little boy with a broken leg. John has had surgery on his eyes and believes his nurse to be middle aged and very homely. There is nothing wrong with Dick's eyes, however, and he falls in love with Marjorie immediately. When John recovers his sight he falls in love with his nurse and becomes very jealous of her other patient, whom he pictures as a man of his own age. Marjorie has fallen in love with John, but torments him for some time. Marjorie poses as the daughter of poor fisherfolk, and John's parents attempt to buy her off. John insists on marrying her, but when he learns of her deception, he leaves in a rage. Later he is wounded and Marjorie becomes his nurse again. This time her parents interpose objections, but these are overcome and the two are united.
