Allison Zieglmeier, FNP-C, was born in Ohio but raised in Southern California. Her family history is well rooted in the healthcare industry. Her grandmother, great aunts, and great uncles were all medical providers avidly serving their community during the time of segregation. Her father is a practicing physician of over 50 years who also served 21 years in the U. S. Air Force. Her mother is a homemaker who has volunteered at many institutions that provided services to the underserved population. Her parents instilled in her the importance of gaining an education and serving the community with the emphasis of providing for those who do not have adequate access to healthcare services. Throughout her younger years, volunteering at her father’s clinics and assisting her mother with volunteering in the community, her interest in healthcare grew.
Allison graduated from Nevada State College with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree. She practiced as a Registered Nurse specializing in pain management with hospice and palliative care for over 10 years. Her dedication and hard work were recognized by the March of Dimes in 2008 where she was presented the March of Dimes Nurse of the Year award for Hospice Nursing, Home Health, and Palliative Care. With the passion to be able to provide a higher level of care, she furthered her education and graduated from National University with a Master of Science in Nursing degree, specializing in Family Nurse Practitioner. Allison also graduated from Fisk University with a Bachelor of Arts in English because of her love of reading and writing. During her free time, she likes to read and write non-fiction, fiction, and poetry, travel, exercise, and spend time with her family and friends.
Allison is a member of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, Nevada Advanced Practice Nurses Association, American Pain Society, and Sigma Theta Tau International Honors Society of Nursing.
