Decker nursing faculty

Tamara Burger is a clinical instructor at the Decker School of Nursing; her focus is women's health. Burger's interest in this area started in 1982 when she worked with a population of women in crisis-pregnancy situations and found that the women had little knowledge of their body. Since that time she pursued an undergraduate degree as a registered nurse and a master's degree in midwifery. Her experience includes working in maternity and newborn nursery, as well as full-scope midwifery practice.

Burger has also been involved with teaching on multiple levels including childbirth education, group prenatal visits, precepting midwifery and family nurse practitioner students and graduate education on a formal level.

She has an interest in international health and has also taught and worked in Guatemala and several countries in West Africa.
