Information
Type NPC
Sub Type Town
HP 250 Heart

The Nurse restores your remaining Health and heals Debuffs in exchange for Coins. She charges 80% of the total Health Points to be restored in Copper Coins (rounded down), e.g. 100 Health would cost 80 CopperCoin Small.

For the Nurse to appear, the player must have increased their maximum health at least once by acquiring and using a Life Crystal. There must also be a vacant house for her to live in.

Terraria How to get the Nurse

Notes

  • When trying to heal but there is no room left for the change money, the nurse will say the same things as she would say when the player doesn't have enough money.
  • In the case that the player has a debuff inflicted upon them, such as "On Fire!" or "Poisoned", the Nurse will heal them for a price, regardless of the player's current health. (If the player's health is under max, she will charge for that too.)
  • If the player attempts to remove "Potion Sickness" using the Nurse, the debuff timer will disappear, but the player will still not be able to drink healing potions until the debuff would have worn off normally.
  • The Nurse's price is updated in real time, including adjustments accounting for the player's natural health regeneration.
  • Like most other female NPC's she will be very irritable during blood moon and snap at you as you try to talk to her.

Bugs & Glitches

  • When the player has the Water Candle debuff in effect the Nurse will try to remove it for 7 SilverCoin Small and 50 CopperCoin Small

Tips

  • The Nurse's room is a good place to place your bed. If you are in a battle with a Boss, and you are low on Health, you can easily heal yourself if you are teleporting to your house at the Nurse. This strategy is not handy while battling the Wall of Flesh, because then you'll get instantly killed when you use a Magic Mirror.


Nurse's Quotes

When very low on health

"You left your arm over there. Let me get that for you.."
"Dear friends, we are gathered here today to bid farewell... oh, you'll be fine."
"Eww.. What happened to your face?"
"MY GOODNESS! I'm good but I'm not THAT good."
"You look half digested... were you chasing slimes again?"

When low on health

"I think you look better this way."
"That's gonna need stiches!"
"Trouble with those bullies again?"
"Hold on, I've got some cartoon bandages around here somewhere."
"Hey, has <Arms Dealer's name> mentioned needing to go to the doctor for any reason? Just wondering."

When around half of maximum health

"Quit being such a baby! I've seen worse."
"Walk it off, <character name>, you'll be fine. Sheesh." "Does it hurt when you do that? Don't do that."

When healed at low health

"That's gonna leave a scar."
"I managed to sew your face back on. Try to be more careful next time."

When healed at half health or more

"That didn't hurt too bad, did it?"
"Ah, better. I don't want to see you jumping off any more cliffs."

When high on health

"Turn your head and cough." (Reference to getting a physical)
"That's not the biggest I've ever seen... Yes, I've seen bigger wounds for sure."
"Show me where it hurts."
"I wish (Demolitionist Name) would be more careful. I'm getting tired of having to sew his limbs back on every day."
"I need to have a serious talk with (Guide Name). How many times a week can you come in with severe lava burns?" (reference to throwing the Guide Voodoo Doll into lava to summon the Wall of Flesh.)

When trying to heal at full health

"I don't give happy endings." (only if player is male)
"I can't do anything for you without plastic surgery."
"Quit wasting my time."
"Would you like a lollipop?"

When Clothier is not present

"Have you seen that old man pacing around the dungeon? He looks troubled."

When trying to heal with insufficient funds

"You can't afford me."
"I don't work for free you know."
"I'm gonna need more gold than that."

During a Blood Moon

"WHAT!?"
"I don't think I like your tone."
"What is that supposed to mean?"
"Why are you even here? If you aren't bleeding, you don't need to be here. Get out."
"Hurry up and stop bleeding."
"You better not get blood on me."
"If you're going to die, do it outside."
