* ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'' features one in the side story ''Pinto''. Tsukiyama introduces Chie to a beautiful nurse hopelessly in love with one of the doctors, and constantly harassed by one of her elderly patients. Later on, it's revealed that she regularly beats the old man and steals gifts from him, knowing that he won't remember the abuse later on. When her reputation is threatened, she murders the old man and claims to have failed to save him from a Ghoul attack. It earns her the admiration of her coworkers and the affections of the doctor she'd been crushing on.

* ''Assignment Gestapo'' by SvenHassel. [[DumbMuscle Tiny]] falls in love with the (so-called) milder version, because she's the first woman he's met who's tough enough not to take any abuse from him.

In terms of her origins, the Battleaxe Nurse has many. First is the {{Subversion}} of what the audience expects - nurses are supposed to be caring right? This type of subversion is similar in its origins to the EvilClown trope - clowns are supposed to be associated with joy, and thus it creates a rich irony to associate them with terror. Likewise for the Battleaxe Nurse.

* The interrogation scene in ''TheEnglishPatient'' probably qualifies. * ''{{The Right Stuff}}'' has Nurse Murch, at the hospital where the potential astronauts are being tested. She has a moustache, and she likes torturing the candidates. She seems to especially like it when they enjoy it, too.

Restored the Fan Works section, which had good examples.
Added DiffLines:
[[AC:Fan Works]] * In the Anime/FullmetalAlchemist fanfiction [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5998743/1/Asylum_rewritten Asylum]], Lust is a nurse. Predictably, she's also this. "I wouldn't be so foolish as to pin me with the stereotypes of my profession, if I were you... I don't feel compassion, and especially not for the condemned." * John Gafe deals with one from canon in the ''{{Series/Emergency}}'' fic [[http://www.tbillingsemergencyfanfic.com/complicationspart1.htm "Complications"]]. He is confused and recovering from encephalitis. He also still struggles with a badly abusive childhood and a mild case of Asperger's, and when the nurse wants to examine him, he panics and fights. Her answer is to slap him and restrain him, which only terrifies him more, due to his background, and sedate him. Roy, [=JoAnn=], Dr. Brackett and Dixie are all outraged. The nurse is fired and the Desotos take John to recover with them. That said, Roy is still kind and helpful to the nurse when he comes upon her in a car accident later.
