Tamara (Tammy) Allen, NNP is board certified by National Certification Corporation. She has extensive experience with infants as a bedside nurse, clinical educator, and member of the maternal-child transport team. She loves to teach and is an instructor for the Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP), STABLE (post-resuscitation/pre-transport stabilization care of sick newborns), and the STABLE cardiac module through the state of Idaho and Oregon. She is passionate about providing excellent care to our smallest patients and teaching others to give the same great care. Babies with cardiac defects are especially dear to her, as her niece had open heart surgery as an infant.
Tammy advocated for and designed the Hall of Hope at St. Luke's Children's Hospital, a photo gallery that serves as a beautiful reminder of how infants who need NICU support at birth grow into beautiful toddlers and children. This labor of love offers hope to parents, grandparents and siblings every day as they visit their new babies in the NICU.
Tammy earned her bachelor's degree in nursing from the University of Utah and master's degree from the advanced practice neonatal nurse practitioner program at the Medical University of South Carolina.
In her free time she loves spending time with her family, working in the garden, and tending to her chickens, bees and goats.
Tammy cares for babies in the NICU at St. Luke’s Boise, Magic Valley, Meridian, and Nampa.
