Essentia Health Welcomes Nurse Practitioner Katie Gurskis

Katie Gurskis, Family Medicine

Nurse Practitioner Katie Gurskis has joined the Family Medicine Department at the Essentia Health-Moorhead Clinic in Moorhead, Minnesota.

Gurskis has worked at Essentia Health as a registered nurse in the emergency room for the past 10 years. “I’m excited to continue my career here as a nurse practitioner,” she says. “I grew up in Moorhead, so caring for patients in my own community means a great deal to me.”

Gurskis earned a master’s degree in nursing from Clarkson College in Omaha, Nebraska. She is certified as a family nurse practitioner by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners.

“I chose family practice because I enjoy building long term relationships with patients and families over time,” says Gurskis.  “I enjoy treating and preventing medical problems as well as providing education to patients regarding their health to ensure optimal outcomes.”
