About Tara L Worley, ACNP

Tara earned a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center in 2006. In 2013, she earned a Master of Science in Nursing from the University of South Alabama. Tara is board-certified as an Acute Care Nurse Practitioner by the American Nurses Credentialing Center.

Tara’s love for cardiology stems from her nursing experience in critical care and heart transplantation, which gives her unique insight into advanced heart failure in her current role as a cardiology Nurse Practitioner. She is also able to treat patients with a variety of needs involving coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, hypertension, arrhythmias and devices.

Compassion is Tara’s guiding principle and the lens through which she views every patient. At the forefront of her thoughts is the understanding that she’s not treating a disease, but rather a real person with a real life and a real family.

Originally from New Orleans, Tara thoroughly enjoys the four seasons in Hampton Roads, as well as the area’s family values, proximity to the nation’s capital and large military community. Her husband’s service as an U.S. Air Force colonel brought their family to Virginia in 2014. She and Jim have three children. Tara enjoys gardening, reading and traveling.
