Essentia Health Welcomes Nurse Practitioner Rachel Nelles

Rachel Nelles, Diabetes & Endocrinology

Nurse Practitioner Rachel Nelles has joined the Endocrinology Department at the Essentia Health-South University Clinic in Fargo, North Dakota.

Nelles previously worked at Essentia Health, and is happy to be back. “I have lived and worked in Fargo for most of my life, so it’s great to be close to my family and friends again,” she says. “I had a great experience here, and I’m thrilled to return to my position in endocrinology.”

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

“I developed Type 1 Diabetes as a child, which is the reason I chose a career in healthcare and specifically endocrinology,” explains Nelles. “I want my patients to know that I’m here to partner with them and to help them achieve their best quality of life.”
