    Mary McNair is an instructor in the undergraduate baccalaureate nursing program. After graduating with her BSN, she began working as a staff nurse in a women's health unit at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. The unit included antepartum high-risk patients, women undergoing gynecological surgery and gyn-oncology patients. She quickly became interested in the pathophysiology and psychosocial aspects of care for women with gynecological cancers, and out of that interest, grew her love for end-of-life and palliative care.

    She received a certification in Oncology Nursing in 1999 and has continued that certification since that time. At present, she is also a certified End-of-Life Nursing Education Consortium trainer. Additionally, she currently is pursuing her doctoral studies in clinical health sciences and is focusing on academic dishonesty and its impact on patient safety and outcomes.
