TV doctors #7 – Nurse LaVerne Roberts/Nurse Shirley, Scrubs
Scrubs Nurse LaVerne Roberts (Aloma Wright) was the kind of don’t-take-no-mess-I-know-exactly-what’s-going-on nurse I would want caring for me. She departed the half-hour comedy, but was brought back as her sister Shirley. The ABC series lives on in syndication!
