Nurse Wainscott[4] was a witch who worked as a nurse at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry under Poppy Pomfrey during the 1990s. She attended to the fighters' injuries in the Great Hall during the Battle of Hogwarts.[3]


Early life

Little is known of Nurse Wainscott's early life; however, she was born into the Wainscott family, presumably in Great Britain, sometime before 1981[1].

School and later career

She somehow learned magic, presumably at Hogwarts, though it is unknown exactly where or when. After having done so, she began her profession as a nurse at Hogwarts, working under Madame Poppy Pomfrey

Battle of Hogwarts

Nurse Wainscott, her peers, and the Order of the Phoenix prepare for battle

In 1998, Wainscott attended the Battle of Hogwarts, attending to the various injuries of the fighters; it is possible that she fought as well, though this is unlikely.
