AMERICAN ACADEMY OF
Tiffany Heidt, FNP-C was born and raised in Boise, Idaho and graduated from Capital High School in 1987. After attending Pacific Lutheran University and graduating cum laude with a BBA in 1991, she moved back to Boise to work.
After working in the business sector for six years, she discovered an interest in healthcare and changed her career goal to nursing. While she worked on her nursing education at the University of Southern Maine, she worked as a graduate assistant teaching diabetes education to residents of a low-income housing community and providing care at the university-run community clinic. She also sought out additional learning opportunities, spending a month at a rural health clinic near Fort Kent, Maine and traveling to the Dominican Republic to provide much-needed healthcare to remote mountain villages with limited access.
As a registered nurse, she worked at the Maine Center for Diabetes and Endocrinology in Scarborough, Maine. Upon graduating with her Master of Science in Nursing, she traveled back to the Roseburg, Oregon area where she practiced in Family Medicine for two years. Southern Oregon offered her great experience caring for individuals of all ages with complicated chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and hyperlipidemia.
Ecstatic for the opportunity to return to Boise, she didn’t hesitate when given the opportunity to join Dr.Foote’s practice in 2005. Tiffany is a member of the Nurse Practitioners of Idaho, the Idaho Medical Association, and is certified by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners.
