Introducing Heather Jarboe, AGNP
Heather earned her AGNP in December 2022 from the University of Cincinnati. Heather started her career as a registered nurse at St. Mary's Hospital in Evansville, Indiana before transitioning to outpatient cardiology as a physician extender. Upon moving away from that area, Heather began working in home health care. During Heather's time as a nurse in home healthcare, she developed a passion for the primary care aspect of adult care and, more specifically, working with seniors. The desire to be able to serve this population in a provider role led Heather to pursue a master's degree, and eventually become an AGNP.
"My favorite part about working in healthcare will forever be the connections made through learning from patients and their families. They're a result of laughs and tears that have come from shared pictures, history lessons, jokes, advice, recipes, and stories of love, loss, and everything in between. I hope to never stop adding to and learning from connections to my patients and their loved ones. I try to picture myself as the patient/family member and practice the way I would want to be treated and informed. I might not have all the answers all the time, but I'll never stop trying to help find answers."
