Tammy came to Pitt-Bradford in 2003. Her research focuses on women’s health issues, specifically those affecting rural adolescent women, and pediatric medicine.
Tammy brings a great deal of real-world experience to the Pitt-Bradford classroom. Prior to her faculty appointment, she practiced as a nationally certified Family Nurse Practitioner specializing in Women's Health. Tammy also has many years of clinical experience as an R.N. in the pediatric and med-surg areas, and received her national certification in pediatrics in 1990.
In addition to her faculty responsibilities, Tammy continues to practice as a Family Nurse Practitioner in the Bradford area and is active in the local community supporting various organizations as a volunteer, including the McKean County S.P.C.A, and the Friendship Table. Outside the classroom, she enjoys camping, quilting, and home improvement projects.
What is the most rewarding aspect of teaching at Pitt-Bradford?
I take great joy in seeing students apply what they learn. It is nice to see students leaving the classroom and having a positive impact on the lives of patients and their families in a clinical setting.
What do students enjoy about your classes?
My students enjoy the interactive nature of class. Nursing students here have the opportunity to gain real-world experience by working closely with expert faculty members and gaining hands-on, professional experience in a clinical setting.
What makes teaching at Pitt-Bradford unique?
It is an attractive campus for incoming students. Students have accessibility to their professors, who are experts in their field, and first-class resources are available here.
Why should a student choose Pitt-Bradford?
Students should choose Pitt-Bradford because of the individual attention they receive. It is easy for students to get direct assistance in a casual, non-intimidating setting.
