There are 11 members of the Board of Nursing: 5 Registered Nurses (RN) one of which must be an Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner (ARNP), 2 Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN), 2 Licensed Nursing Assistants (LNA), and 2 public members. The Board members are appointed by the Governor to serve a 3-year term. Each member may serve a total of 3 consecutive 3-year terms, or a total of 9 consecutive years.
The purpose of the Board is to:
……….Safeguard life, health, and the public welfare of the people of this state and ….. to protect the people of the state of New Hampshire from the unauthorized, unqualified, and improper application of services by individuals in the practice of nursing…….”
Jennifer Laramie has worked at Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice for 12 years and says, “I really enjoy taking care of people….the patients are what keep me coming back everyday.” She is excited about representing RN’s on the Board of Nursing and looks forward to serving on the Board for the next three years.
