Sanford Health welcomes Jennifer Tinkler, CNP, to the dermatology team


Sanford Health in Bemidji welcomes Jennifer Tinkler, CNP, to the dermatology team at the Sanford Bemidji 1611 Anne Street Clinic.

Jennifer earned her undergraduate degree in nursing followed by her master’s as a nurse practitioner from the Minnesota State University in Moorhead, MN. Jennifer is board certified by the Dermatology Nursing Certification Board.

Prior to becoming a nurse practitioner, Jennifer has gained a wealth of experience as a registered nurse working in psychiatry, chemical dependency, and managed care for Altru Health System in Grand Forks, ND. Over the last decade, Jennifer has provided specialized care as a nurse practitioner in dermatology for Truyu Dermatology in Grand Forks, ND; Dermatology Professionals in Bemidji; and director of clinical excellence/nurse practitioner for Catalyst Medical Clinic and Spa in Fargo, ND.

Jennifer is available by appointment to treat a wide variety of dermatology-related conditions, including acne, autoimmune diseases, birthmarks, connective tissue disease, dermatitis, hair disorders, moles, nail disorders, psoriasis, rosacea, skin cancer and warts.

“My idea of care is holistic, encompassing a hybrid of many specialties,” shared Jennifer. “What is visible on the skin is often a window to underlying medical conditions.”

Excited to be continuing practicing in the Bemidji area, Jennifer is glad to be living in Lake Country. In her spare time, she enjoys exploring the beautiful outdoors of northern Minnesota hiking, kayaking, biking and snowshoeing.
