UHC nurse named to West Virginia Board of Registered Nurses

Leslie D. Perine, MSN, RN, is a nursing educator and graduate nurse specialist at WVU Medicine United Hospital Center, having served as a nurse for more than 23 years, has been appointed to the West Virginia Board of Registered Nurses for a term ending June 30, 2025.

“Few nurses have gained the experience and compassion in their career as Leslie Perine,” said Stephanie Smart, MSN, RN, vice president of nursing and chief nursing officer at UHC. “She has been instrumental in shaping the practice of registered nurses at UHC. This appointment will afford her not only the opportunity to make a difference in nursing across the state, but also for its citizens.”


The West Virginia Board of Registered Nurses’ mission is to promote and protect public health, safety and welfare through the regulations of registered professional nurses and dialysis technicians. The board also performs primary source verification for education and training of registered nurses and advanced practice registered nurses licensees.

“I am honored to be appointed to the WV RN Board, as few professions have the opportunity to touch the lives of others as nursing does,” Perine said. “I will be an advocate for nurses throughout West Virginia.”

Perine earned her undergraduate degree from Alderson-Broaddus College in Philippi and her master’s of nursing from West Virginia University in Morgantown.

Her experience is extensive, as she has been a staff nurse, infusion center nurse, Emergency Department nurse and pediatric nurse. Perine’s educational outreach spans 13 years, with experience as an assistant professor of nursing at both Alderson-Broaddus College in Philippi and Fairmont State University in Fairmont, as well as a clinical instructor at both West Virginia University School of Nursing in Morgantown and Davis & Elkins College in Elkins.

Perine is very philanthropic in her community, as she assists with the Salvation Army Angel Tree Program and with the Judson Baptist Youth Camp as a camp nurse and teacher. She resides with her husband and three daughters in Bridgeport.
