ICU Nurse Earns BSN to Better Herself and Her Future

ICU-Nurse-Earns-BSN-to-Better-Herself-and-Her-Future (1)For 25 years, Sharon Marrow’s passion has been working in the intensive care unit.

“The ICU is so challenging and so rewarding,” says Sharon, who has worked for the Sentara Careplex Hospital in Hampton, Virginia, since 1985. “To me, the greatest feeling in the world is helping a patient who is very sick recover. Being able to bring patients back to health is one of the reasons I love nursing.”

A lifelong resident of Hampton, Sharon followed in the footsteps of her aunt, who worked as a nurse when she was growing up. She completed the Registered Nurse program at Riverside Hospital School of Professional Nursing in 1977 and started out at Whittaker Memorial Hospital before joining Sentara. She always loved her job, but yearned for more education. “It was always something I wanted to do, but I waited until the time was right,” she says.
