Nurse Ackerman is one of the protagonists in The Man in Room 1280, the third story in Fazbear Frights 5: Bunny Call. She is the head of the hospice wing in Heracles Hospital. Her actions can make her considered an antagonist of the story, as she opposes Arthur.
Nurse Ackerman is described as a tall, sharp-edged woman with too many teeth and an unsettling gaze. She has a mole under her left eye.
Nurse Ackerman is stern, unfriendly, and cold, but also intelligent. She dislikes the fact that she is constantly reminded of life before her son died, the passing of whom resulting in her distancing of emotions.
Nurse Ackerman lived a fairly normal life until her son Elijah died. After this, she became cold and detached from her emotions. Despite this, she went on to be a nurse to help prevent others to be in her situation. As of the events of The Man in Room 1280, she is the leader of the hospice wing in Heracles Hospital. She meets Arthur a week prior to the events of the story.
During the events of the story, she shows Arthur the man, and explains to him the patient’s background, that they had no idea who he was, his family, or how he lived beyond all odds. She quickly reveals her and her nurses’ shared belief to Arthur that the man was pure evil, showing him the presence of two distinct energies in the man’s brain.
She is horrified when Arthur makes communication with the man and when it is revealed the man wanted to go to Fazbear Entertainment Distribution Center, insists it must not happen. She attempts to loop in her new employee Mia by speaking about Arthur and the man during break behind her, but distrusts her as she only eavesdropped. She later discusses with the other nurses plans to kill the man, and is the first to attempt so, using large amounts of morphine. However, the ghost child interrupts her and she is thrown back into her past, remembering the time she lost her son. She snaps out of it, but is once again thwarted as a child-sized shadow (presumably the same entity) threw away the vials.
