Inspired by his grandmother who worked for Johnson & Johnson, Sean Snibbe, RN, followed in her footsteps by getting his nursing degree in 2019. Previously, he spent 10 years in the U.S. Army as a combat medic, where he provided medical care to deployed personnel.
A year after beginning his career as a pediatric nurse at Lehigh Valley Hospital–Hazleton, the pandemic hit. During that period, he continued to care for pediatric and med-surg patients. “I was slightly burnt out from COVID,” he says. “I liked the idea of home care nursing because it offered better hours and more time to spend with patients.”
In 2022, Snibbe made a transition to Lehigh Valley Home Care–Hazleton. A father of three teenagers, the idea of spending more time with his kids was a big draw.
““I love home care because it is so independent. I go home to chart and call patients. I really enjoy what I do.” - Sean Snibbe, RN
