Nurse Practitioner Christine Diederich has joined the Urgent Care Department at the Essentia Health St. Joseph’s-Baxter Clinic in Baxter, Minnesota.

Diederich has been caring for patients at the Baxter Clinic on a temporary basis for the past two years, and is happy to join the team full time. “The support here has been amazing – everyone across the board is so helpful and team-oriented,” she explains. “It’s a great atmosphere to work in.”

Diederich earned a master’s degree in nursing from Minnesota State University in Mankato, Minnesota. She is certified as a family nurse practitioner by the American Nurses Credentialing Center.

“I really enjoy the pace of working in urgent care and being able to provide care for patients when they are sick or in a crisis,” says Diederich. “I think my nursing background is very valuable in this setting as I’m able to see the whole picture and how many things can affect what’s currently happening for each patient.”
