Provider Spotlight- Allison Niciu, CPNP
Allison Niciu, CPNP
Allison Niciu is a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner who works in our Newburyport Office. She joined CHC in 2016.
Allison grew up in Peabody MA with her parents and younger brother. She was a competitive dancer from elementary school through high school at North Shore Dance Academy. The dance studio became her second family, and she was beyond thrilled when her daughter was old enough to start dancing there as well! Dance has always been and will always be a significant part of Allison’s life.
Allison majored in nursing at Boston College after graduating high school. She had a cousin, Stacey, who was diagnosed with leukemia as a young child and spent a lot of time hospitalized throughout her life. Stacey was one of the strongest, bravest women Allison has ever known, never once complaining while battling various complications from chemo and radiation treatments. It was Stacey’s journey that led Allison to nursing school and started her passion for pediatric nursing. Allison’s love for pediatric nursing was only further cemented by her own experience as a CNA at Children’s Hospital Boston on the pediatric oncology floor. There she learned how amazing and resilient children truly are. Allison went on to work in an ENT OR for several years before returning to BC for her Master of Science in Nursing to become a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner. After doing her clinical rotation at CHC with Terry Reardon-Pollini, she started working at CHC in 2016 and never looked back!
Allison now lives with her husband Matt, her two children, Jordan and Patrick (PJ), and Myla, their German Shepherd. Family is very important in their lives, and they spend a lot of time with their extended family as well. Family parties are some of Allison’s favorite memories, along with various trips to Disney. Both are things she looks forward to sharing with her children as they continue to grow.
