Jennifer Pryor, RN, BSN, Intensive Care Unit, joined Methodist Hospital
in Henderson in May 2018 as a Nurse Extern while completing her nurse’s
training at Madisonville Community College. She continued her education
through Murray State University and received a Bachelor of Science degree
in Nursing in May 2019. Pryor works three 12-hour shifts per week in the
ICU and works one day per week as a Health Campus Coordinator at Madisonville
Pryor’s husband, Justin, is a pastor who also works as a Physical
Therapy Assistant with Progressive Health. They are the parents of two
daughters (ages nine and seven) and a five-year-old son.
Her history with Methodist Hospital goes back to her birth. “I was
delivered here by Dr. Sprague,” she said, “and grew up in
Sebree.” She says coming to work here felt natural from the start.
“I fell in love with the ICU from the day I walked in,” Pryor
continued. “I like being able to provide one on one primary care
to each patient.
“Being able to care for my patients with a holistic view is the best
part — not just caring for them physically but mentally and spiritually
as well.” Pryor also enjoys being able to communicate and provide
support to family members.
She added, “The main thing I love about Methodist Hospital is that
it is a very family oriented place. It’s easy to get lost in bigger
hospitals but not here. It makes me feel special to walk down the hallway
and have someone call me by name.”
