Tara Nagel MSN, CPNP, RN

Tara was born in Houston, Texas but moved all around the state growing up, including living in Midland during junior high. She attended high school in Oklahoma and London, England before deciding it was time to come back to West Texas for college.
After earning her Bachelor of Science in Nursing at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, she started her nursing career at Covenant Children's Hospital in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. While working there as a relief charge nurse and mentor, Tara completed her Master of Science in Nursing to become a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner. She is credentialed by the Pediatric Nursing Certifying Board and a member of the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners and Sigma Theta Tau Nursing Honor Society.
Tara began her Pediatric Nurse Practitioner career in Odessa, but soon moved to the Houston area due
to her husband's job in the petroleum industry. Tara worked at a thriving pediatric practice and gained
valuable experience. Thankfully, after a few years in Houston, her family had the opportunity to return to
Midland for a much shorter commute and more relaxed lifestyle.
Tara and her husband have two young boys and two spoiled dogs who keep them super busy and
laughing when not at work. She is also a proud aunt to two sweet nephews and a niece that all live
in the Houston area. Tara enjoys spending time with her family, watching Red Raider sports, cooking
sweets, and trying to find more time for running.
Tara is thankful to be part of the MPA team and loves working the the patients and their families to keep
them healthy and happy!
