Tara Pearce, FNP-C

About Tara

Tara Pearce began her career at Good Samaritan in 2002 in the radiology program. She was looking for a career in the medical field, but at the time, was set on not being a nurse. “I love talking about how I started in the health care field because I was determined to not become a nurse,” said Tara. “But then my baby at the time was admitted to the hospital. The nursing staff was so great and made such an impact that I said, ‘that’s what I want to do. I want to be a nurse.’” She finished the radiology program and worked in that department until 2012 when she decided to leave work and stay at home with her children. When the time was finally right, Tara went back to school and became a nurse practitioner. “I have always loved pregnancy and childbirth so I enjoy working in women’s health,” she said. “I try to always be friendly, outgoing, and easy to talk to with my patients.” Tara and her husband, Chris, who is also a nurse at Good Samaritan, have five children. In her free time, she enjoys shopping, crafting, and taking her kids swimming in the summer.
