Marilyn B. Wise, DNP, APRN, FNP-BC


Tanner Clinic is a place familiar to Marilyn B. Wise, DNP, APRN, FNP-BC. As a new nurse, she worked at the clinic for several years. In August 2017, Wise returned as a nurse practitioner with Dr. Laura Foot in urology at the Layton clinic.

A Davis County native, Wise began her career in nursing working at several Northern Utah hospitals and medical clinics. After 20 years in the profession, she decided to earn an advanced degree. “Family nurse practitioner just felt right,” Wise said.

Wise completed her Doctorate of Nursing Practice, her Master of Science in nursing and her Bachelor of Science in nursing at the University of Utah. She graduated with an Associate of Science in nursing at Weber State University.

In this new position, Wise appreciates meeting a wide variety of patients. She likes hearing their life stories and learning their medical concerns. “I really do enjoy interacting with people,” Wise said. Above all, Wise is dedicated to helping patients feel better.

“Sometimes people live with conditions they think are normal or can’t be fixed,” Wise said. “But they often can be fixed or treated.” Wise encourages those who are suffering with urologic complications to avoid further difficulties and seek treatment sooner rather than later.

Wise is excited to return to her Davis County roots and Tanner Clinic. Outside of her practice, she enjoys spending time with her family, exercising and working outside.
