Nurse Practitioner Heaven Gustafson has joined the Hospitalist Department at Essentia Health-St. Mary’s Medical Center in Duluth, Minnesota.

“I did most of my clinical rotations within the Essentia Health system, and I really enjoyed the culture,” says Gustafson. “I could really see the core values shine through at each facility I worked at, and that made me want to be a part of this organization.”

Gustafson earned a doctorate degree in nursing from the College of St. Scholastica in Duluth, Minnesota. She is certified as a family nurse practitioner by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners.

“I chose hospital medicine because I love caring for patients in a great time of need,” says Gustafson. “My nursing background is primarily in hospital medicine, so this specialty allows me to practice to the top of my nurse practitioner scope and see patients with a variety of different medical problems.”
