Essentia Health Welcomes Nurse Practitioner Michelle Crissinger

Nurse Practitioner Michelle Crissinger

Nurse Practitioner Michelle Crissinger has joined the Urgent Care Department at the Essentia Health St. Mary’s – Detroit Lakes Clinic in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota.

“For the past 15 years, I’ve worked as a registered nurse in a hospital that is affiliated with Essentia Health providers, so I’ve worked side by side with them for the majority of my career,” explains Crissinger. “My whole family receives our care at Essentia and we wouldn’t go anywhere else. I always hoped I’d have an opportunity to work here.”

Crissinger earned a doctorate degree in nursing from South Dakota State University in Brookings, South Dakota. She is certified by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners as a family nurse practitioner.

“I’ve had nursing experience caring for patients of all ages and from all walks of life, so this position in Urgent Care is a great fit for me,” says Crissinger. “I am a wife, mother, daughter and friend, and I want my patients to know I’ll treat them as if they were a member of my own family.”
