Fresh from her compelling guest-star turn on ‘Grey’s Anatomy,’ Sara Gilbert is heading back to the hospital, as a nurse on ‘HawthoRNe.’

The ‘Roseanne’ alumna will guest-star on the TNT drama for at least two episodes, Fancast has learned exclusively.

First appearing in ‘HawthoRNe’s Season 2 premiere, Gilbert will play Malia Price, a pediatric nurse who… how do we say this?… doesn’t have the most nurturing personality when it comes to dealing with wee ones.

Darlene, a pediatric nurse? Shudder. It’s a fictional TV show, and yet I’m still inclined to hide my kids.

In addition to her April 1 ‘Grey’s’ visit (watch it here), Gilbert in recent TV seasons has guested on such shows as ‘The Big Bang Theory’ and ‘Law & Order: SVU.’

‘HawthoRNe,’ starring Jada Pinkett Smith, kicks off its sophomore run in June.
