Lake Sunapee VNA Welcomes New Hospice & Palliative Care Director
Lake Sunapee Region VNA & Hospice (LSRVNA) is pleased to welcome Jen Taylor, MSN, APRN, AGNP-C, as its Hospice & Palliative Care Program Director. As a nurse practitioner with a certification in adult-gerontology, she brings a great depth of knowledge, skill and passion to her new role.
Taylor received a bachelor’s degree in nursing from Colby-Sawyer College and began her career in the cardiac unit at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. She continued her education to obtain both a master’s in nursing and a nurse practitioner certification from Duke University, and during that time worked at LSRVNA as an RN case manager for home care and hospice patients. After finishing school, Taylor taught in the nursing program at Colby-Sawyer College. She then returned to LSRVNA as a staff educator and nurse practitioner in the hospice and palliative care program. Most recently, she was a nurse practitioner in Neurology Associates at Concord Hospital, caring for patients with multiple sclerosis and Alzheimer’s disease.
Taylor has a passion for serving the older population, especially in the areas of hospice and palliative care. “When the opportunity came up to join LSRVNA again, I was thrilled to return to home hospice and palliative care,” says Taylor. “Returning to LSRVNA truly feels like coming home. I am very excited to be working with a highly skilled and compassionate team in order to provide excellent home hospice and palliative care services to the community.”
