Rebekah Marsh, BSN, RN, CCRN, serves a three-year term as a director on the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN) board of directors from July 1, 2020, through June 30, 2023. She also serves a one-year term as secretary from July 1, 2022, to June 30, 2023.

Marsh is a clinical nurse educator for acute care/telemetry at Harborview Medical Center, University of Washington (UW) Medicine, Seattle. She also serves as an advisor to nursing shared governance councils and supports evidence-based practice being led from the bedside.

The recipient of an AACN Clinical Scene Investigator (CSI) Academy staff nurse grant (October 2014-January 2016), she followed the learn-one, do-one, teach-one model by taking the next step to embed CSI concepts in her organization’s process improvement structure. She has also been a member of CSI Academy Influencers since its inception in 2016; she says that teleconferencing with other CSI Academy alumni from around the country provides a forum for meaningful connections and discussing the advancement of nurse-led quality improvement projects. She also co-facilitated the daylong NTI preconference on AACN CSI Academy concepts for several years and advocates that front-line nurses have the insight to transform their environment if given the time and resources.

A member of AACN’s Mountain to Sound Chapter since 2016, her other affiliations include serving on the board of directors of the Seattle Nursing Research Consortium to advance nurse-led research in the Seattle region and hosting an annual conference and workshop. She is a member of the American Nurses Association, Association for Nursing Professional Development, Academy of Medical-Surgical Nurses and Sigma.

An accomplished speaker on how nurses can lead from the bedside, she is also co-author of “Validation of the Critical-Care Pain Observation Tool-Neuro in Brain Injured Adults in the Intensive Care Unit,” in Journal of Critical Care, April 2021. She was recognized as a 2020 UW Distinguished Staff Award nominee, with letters provided from staff nurses endorsing her as a “nurse’s nurse.”

Marsh earned a Bachelor of Science in Nursing at UW School of Nursing, Seattle. Before studying nursing, she had a background in fine arts and finds melding the science of nursing with her artist’s background to be a source of professional and personal inspiration.
