Shirley is a nurse at Sacred Heart Hospital.


Shirley is a nurse at Sacred Heart, but nobody notices her resemblance to an old nurse, except J.D. who gave her the nickname "Lavernagain". ("My Identity Crisis")



  • Bill Lawrence created the character of Shirley because he promised Aloma Wright a role, as the killing off of Laverne was written under the impression that it was the final year of the show.
  • Her name is a reference to the 1970s - 1980s sitcom Laverne and Shirley.
