Sara Rowe BSN, RN.

Registered Nurse

For as long as I can remember, I wanted to be a nurse. In 2006, I earned my associate’s degree from Black Hawk College and became a registered nurse. I then completed my bachelors of science nursing degree at the University of Illinois, Chicago, in 2018. Most recently, I am working towards a doctor of nursing practice degree at the University of Saint Augustine for Health Sciences.

Throughout my years as a nurse, I have had the privilege of working with diverse patient populations, across all age demographics. My work with clients at the Top of the World Ranch expeditiously became one of my favorite and most rewarding areas of health care.

I believe humans are life long learners, and expanding my mind is a personal and professional passion. Development of knowledge allows for the continual attainment of new levels of growth and awareness. Addiction disrupts the ability to progress mentally, physically, and spiritually, thus limiting this potential. At the ranch, I take a client-focused care approach, taking into consideration each individual’s unique life circumstances that are fundamental to their holistic well-being. I am sincerely grateful for the opportunity to assist clients as they become empowered to restore a healthy life equilibrium.

The vast techniques and processes that they incorporate along with the amazing environment and facilities at Top of the World Ranch are what I, as a recovering alcoholic and addict, find essential in physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual healing and growth.


AMAZING facility with a knowledgeable, friendly staff. I recently had the opportunity to tour the ranch and I must say that I was thoroughly impressed. The facility grounds are expansive and absolutely peaceful. Perfect setting for healing, discovery, and recovery.


The Main Lodge is unlike any other treatment center...from the counselors' offices, the programming rooms, the games and leisure rooms, to the Chef's culinary skills...i was in awe. The staff, effortlessly, made me feel welcomed. I felt I belonged, I was safe.


On Top of the World Ranch , the place is amazing. The facility is beyond beautiful and lead by a staff that is the best in their field. It is tucked away in the country, just outside of the Quad Cities. Very conveniently located near airport or any of the Interstates , very easy to get to.
