Nurse Practitioner Jessica Hinkley has joined the Oncology Department at the Cancer Center at Essentia Health - St. Joseph’s Medical Center in Brainerd, Minnesota.

As part of the oncology team, Hinkley will care for patients with cancer, from diagnosis through rehabilitation. “I am very vested in improving the quality of life of my patients and their families,” she explains. “I believe it is a privilege to be able to help patients during what can be some of their most vulnerable times.”

Hinkley earned a doctorate degree in nursing from St. Catherine University in St. Paul, Minnesota. She is certified as a family nurse practitioner by the American Nurses Credentialing Center.

“I’m flexible and compassionate in my approach to patient care, and I treat my patients the same way I’d want my own family to be cared for,” says Hinkley.
