Dr. Allison has been practicing in the nursing profession since 1989, completing her ADN at Yavapai College, and BSN at the University of Phoenix, graduating with honors. She continued her education at The University of Arizona, College of Nursing earning a MSN and FNP certificate, as well as completing a program in Foundations of Rural Primary Care. Most recently she was awarded her DNP from Grand Canyon University. Reaching the medically underserved has always been her passion in the nursing and in research.
In 2001, Dr. Allison recognized the unmet needs of an underserved and uninsured population in mid-northwest Tucson. What began as a screening program evolved into a primary care practice. Volunteering as the Clinical Director of the Victory Mobile Medical Unit, she provides care to over 800 individuals annually.
Dr. Allison is equally passionate about promoting the Nurse Practitioner role as a primary option for health care. She has taught advanced nursing practice as an Assistant Professor at Grand Canyon University since 2011. She is one of Tucson’s Fabulous 50 Nurses, a member of the Beta Mu chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International and the American Association of Nurse Practitioners.
