Melissa Goble of Brainerd, a long-time Birthing Center nurse at Cuyuna Regional Medical Center, joined CRMC’s medical staff as a Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner in June 2018. Goble had been working at CRMC since 2005 and, in 2016, earned a Doctorate of Nursing Practice degree in Women’s Health from the University of South Alabama. As a WHNP, she delivers comprehensive health care to women throughout their lifespans, emphasizing reproductive and gynecologic health needs. Goble will also provide well-woman care, prenatal and postpartum care, care for women experiencing episodic acute or chronic illnesses, and care to men who have selected reproductive health needs or problems. As a certified menopause provider, she provides menopause-related health care to perimenopause and menopausal women to help them transition through the next phase of life.

“I enjoy all aspects of my practice, especially the variety between gynecology, menopause, and OB patients. I enjoy helping my patients find relief in their symptoms and bring back some quality of life, and I enjoy watching the expressions on their faces as they see the baby’s heartbeat for the first time.” 

The Nurse Practitioner earned a Bachelor of Science in nursing at the College of St. Scholastica in Duluth and studied at Lake Superior College in Duluth and Central Lakes College in Brainerd. She has received numerous honors and awards, including in the Honor Society of Nursing-Sigma Theta Tau International at the University of South Alabama and the National Honor Society at Central Lakes College. At CRMC, she was a prenatal class instructor, preceptor, and member of the Excel Committee of Leaders. She also volunteered at the YMCA and St. Joseph’s Medical Center, both in Brainerd. 

Outside work, Goble loves running, going on trips, and exploring with her family.
