There is no typical day for acute-‚Ä®care nurse practitioner Dr. Jane Thayer, but every day will find her caring for people. In her role as outpatient department manager of Baptist Memorial Hospital-Memphis’ Thoracic Transplant Services, Thayer, who holds a doctorate in nursing, provides leadership by example for an extraordinary team of healthcare professionals who care for heart transplant patients. Whether she is talking to a patient and family about a heart transplant or performing a physical examination in the clinic, she does it with care and compassion. When asked about her personal mission, Thayer says it is to contribute her best.

She raises the bar on excellence in nursing and realizes the value of linking education to experience. A lifelong learner, Thayer focuses on providing excellent and safe patient care, according to Teresa Dawson, executive director for transplant services at Baptist Memphis.
