Shailynn Shipley, Family medicine

Nurse Practitioner Shailynn Shipley has joined the Family Medicine Department at the Essentia Health- International Falls Clinic in International Falls, Minnesota.

Shipley grew up in International Falls and has been a practicing registered nurse in the area for the past 15 years. “During this time, I’ve been able to develop professional relationships with the providers at Essentia Health,” she says. “From the moment I walked in the door here, I felt welcome and part of the team. I knew I wanted to be a part of that.”

Shipley 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 Academy of Nurse Practitioners. 

“I chose family medicine because I enjoy working with families and having the opportunity to partner with them to make a healthy difference in their lives,” says Shipley.  “I also want to help to increase access to quality health care in rural communities and having a broad scope of practice helps me meet this need in my rural hometown.”
