Welcome to Melissa Kruger, CNP

CentraCare Weight Management welcomes Melissa M. Kruger, CNP, to its team. Melissa says, “In my role as a nurse practitioner, I believe care is better when we look at the whole person as a unique individual. By doing so, I can help patients achieve their weight loss goals and get them back to doing what they love!” Melissa pursued nursing because of its blend of science and art, saying she is a caregiver at heart. Her special clinical interests include weight management, chronic disease management and pediatrics.

Melissa completed her Doctor of Nursing Practice from the College of St. Scholastica and her Bachelor of Science in nursing from the College of St. Benedict. Outside of work, she enjoys camping, hiking, baking, crafting and spending time with her friends and family.
