Alisa Orr AGPCNP-BC
Alisa Orr was raised in Pocatello, Idaho. She attended Idaho State University where she received her LPN (1995) and her associate degree in Nursing (ADN, 2005). She completed a bachelor’s degree in nursing (BSN) from the University of Wyoming (2017), and master’s degree in Nursing (MSN) from Spring Arbor University with a focus in Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner (AGPCNP, 2020). She is board certified by the American Nurses Certification Center (ANCC).
Alisa has over 25 years of nursing experience which includes Long Term Care, Medical/Surgical, ICU, Infusion Therapy, Oncology, and working in a 16 bed Critical Access Hospital in Kemmerer, Wyoming which included Emergency Room, Labor and Delivery, and Nursery. She developed a love for oncology and obtained her certification as an Oncology Certified Nurse (OCN) in 2009 and worked as a chemotherapy nurse at Snake River Oncology in Idaho Falls, Idaho. This experience was foundational and beneficial when she moved to southwest Wyoming in 2011. No oncology services were available in that area, but the local hospital was exploring the feasibility of introducing this new service line. She was uniquely qualified to help develop and build an oncology program from the ground up. Sweetwater Regional Cancer Center (SRCC) was established in 2012 and has grown into a busy regional cancer center. In 2015, SRCC was the first center to become a Huntsman Cancer Center Affiliate.
Alisa is happy to be back in Idaho Falls working at Teton Cancer Center. “I feel lucky to have the opportunity to help and support patients during their incredibly difficult task of fighting cancer.”
Alisa and her husband Dave have 3 children. They enjoy traveling and raising animals including a dog, chickens, and more animals to come. She enjoys spending time with family and friends, playing the piano, and singing.
