Kirstie Syverson, NP, Joins Altru Clinic in Devils Lake

Devils Lake, N.D – Kirstie Syverson, NP, joins the internal medicine team at Altru Clinic in Devils Lake. “I feel as though a successful clinical practice entails a partnership between the provider and the patient. I hope to be able to instill a sense of empowerment for my patients in their journey toward better health, states Kirstie. “I very much value the team approach in the delivery of health care and I am so thankful to have a great arsenal of teammates on my team—from my nurse, to our therapy departments, to our pharmacists, and so on.” 

Kirstie earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of North Dakota, where she graduated summa cum laude. She went on to complete her Master of Science in Nursing, Family Nurse Practitioner, also from the University of North Dakota. “As a new practitioner, I am making it a point to build my practice on the foundation of primary prevention and health maintenance. There is so much value to yearly preventive exams for patients, and it is my duty to provide evidence-based recommendations and education to help my patients achieve optimal health.” 

Outside of work, Kirstie enjoys spending time with her husband, her family and friends. They like to spend time at the lake and on the golf course, and Kirstie enjoys rollerblading and running when she’s able. She and her husband have a cat, appropriately named Kitty, who they love dearly.
