Mary Jane Higgs

Mary Jane currently works at ProHealth Care with the palliative care team and meets with patients during their hospital admission. She is board certified as MSN, APRN, AGNP-C as well as Advanced Certified Hospice and Palliative Care NP. Mary Jane was fortunate enough serve as a member of a palliative care team as the RN in the early 2000’s when palliative care was in its infancy, and she has kept much of the same philosophy and support throughout her nursing career in various roles. In 2015, Mary Jane became an NP and has worked as a palliative care provider since then. She has worked with her teams to arrange and participate in community education and events including conferences, radio interviews, movie showings, educational panels, book clubs, workshops and educational sessions. Mary Jane has met with members of our state’s politicians and representatives for input on legislation that supports palliative care moving forward.
