Licensed Practical Nurse
Janet Dunbar, LPN
Janet Dunbar joins Newport Academy with more than 45 years of experience in healthcare as a licensed practical nurse (LPN). Originally, she chose to work in this field because of her parent’s stellar example to be kind and caring to people of all ages, race, and religious choices. Today, she accredits her team as her biggest influences for their constant support and encouragement. She believes her strengths lie with treating behavior emergency and teaching patients to practice compromises. Janet has participated in specialized sessions for IV Training, diabetes-induced dementia, wound care, as well as courses in psychology. She is also trained as a hospice nurse.
Prior to Newport Academy, Janet worked as an LPN in hospitals, clinics, community health centers, long-term care, and Medicare units. She even worked for the Sioux Tribe in South Dakota.
