Essentia Health Welcomes Nurse Practitioner Jennifer Henry

Jennifer Henry, a certified nurse practitioner has taken on a new role within Essentia Health as a nurse practitioner in internal medicine. Henry is now seeing patients at the Essentia Health-South University Clinic in Fargo.

Henry has been with Essentia Health since 2000, first as a registered nurse in the emergency department and then as a registered nurse care coordinator in primary care clinics. “I wanted to begin my practice at Essentia because people here truly care,” shares Henry. “People, both patients and employees, are not treated like numbers, they are treated like family.”

Henry sees primary care as the chance to focus on the entire picture, not just one particular area. “I love the challenge of working with people who have multiple chronic diseases, which forces me to really think and stay on my toes,” Henry says. “I also have a passion for working with geriatric patients.”

Henry received her master’s degree at the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks, N.D. and is certified as an adult/gerontology nurse practitioner by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners.
