Caring, patient, and tough, anime nurse characters will grasp your heart in an instant. They can be sweet and gentle, but when it comes to doing their duty, they are quick and dedicated. Treating wounded people is not a job for the weak-hearted, after all. What’s more is that they all look beautiful in their uniforms. Who wouldn't fall for their nurse hats and tight-fitting outfits?

While it’s true that very few nurse characters are created to be main characters, their roles are not to be looked down upon. If not for them, your favorite character just might be lying somewhere wounded, or worse, dead. Supporting roles fit nurses anyway. It’s not to say that they don’t deserve the spotlight. However, considering their profession, they’d be just as happy to lend a helping hand to others. They can be goofy or scary at times, but they most definitely will take any life-and-death situation more seriously than anyone else. To give them the credit they deserve, here’s a list of the top fifteen anime nurse characters.

Check out these lovely anime nurses!
