Nurse Ferry was a character from Ginger Snaps. She was the high school nurse for Bailey Downs High School.
History[edit | edit source]
Nurse Ferry meets with the Fitzgerald sisters one October. She educates the Fitzgerald sisters about the female reproductive system and the menstruation cycle. Although being a knowledgeable person about the human body, she ignored Brigitte and Ginger's concerns about Ginger's excess menstruation and brushed it off as a normal abnormality for a young woman's first period. She seems stuck-up and offers the sisters condoms to protect themselves while having sex.
Significance[edit | edit source]
Nurse Ferry is analogous to Pamela Fitzgerald, who are both loving and caring figures, but to the point of being overwhelming to Brigitte and Ginger. Their awkward encounter made the sisters decide to not pursue help from the Nurse nor from other people who could help Ginger.
