Published on December 12, 2018
Nurse Practitioner Jennifer Henry has joined the Family Medicine Department at the Essentia Health-South University Clinic in Fargo, North Dakota. Henry works in the Transitions of Care Clinic, where patients go to follow-up with a caregiver after they are discharged from the hospital.
Henry worked as a registered nurse for 22 years prior to becoming a nurse practitioner, 18 of which were at Essentia Health. “At Essentia Health, patients are treated like family,” she explains. “I frequently witness colleagues going above and beyond for both patients and coworkers, and that’s the type of practice I want to be a part of.”
Henry earned a master’s degree in nursing from the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks, North Dakota. She is certified as an adult geriatric nurse practitioner by the American Board of Nurse Practitioners.
“I really enjoy working with the elderly population, as I think there are currently a lot of opportunities to enhance the services provided to them,” says Henry. “I want my patients to know I’ll always take the time to listen to them, because they each deserve the best possible care.”
