Susan Abbott, APRN, FNP-BC, joins the Davis Medical Center family

ELKINS, WV—Susan Abbott, APRN, FNP-BC, will work at Davis Health System’s Better Sleep Center, Buckhannon Medical Care and the Alternative Screening Unit (ASU).

Originally, from Elkins and a graduate of Elkins High, she attended Davis and Elkins College where she earned her Associate Degree and a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.

For the past 41 years, she has been an RN and the last 8 years worked as a Family Nurse Practitioner.  She received her Masters of Science in Nursing at East Tennessee State University in 2004.

For Abbott, the medical field was an easy and obvious choice.  She said, “I come from a family of health care workers.  My mom, Julia Hartman, was a D&E nursing instructor for years and was the chair of the department for the last 10 years before her retirement.  All of my sisters, Sherry Bartlett, Robin Riggleman and Caren Thompson went into healthcare in one aspect or another…it’s definitely a family thing.”

Susan, enjoys spending time with her 28 year old son, and loves being outside, as she notes, “This is Elkins, West Virginia!, spending time outdoors in mandatory.”  She also enjoys spending time with family and friends.  In addition, she says, “I love to laugh and have fun. I can find humor in just about anything. It really is the best medicine…and it’s free!”

Some of her other interests include addiction medicine and caring for the aging.

Abbott, who has always been active in the communities she’s lived, has worked in Florida, South Carolina, Tennessee and West Virginia over the years, with her most recent stops at Laurel Place, Elkins Rehabilitation and Care Center and Cortland Acres. 

She is licensed with the West Virginia RN Board and Advanced Practice Registered nurses and has worked as Volunteer Fireman and EMT.
