About Jessica Miehe, DNP

Dr. Jessica Miehe's nursing career began in 2007 as a float pool nurse serving patients in many clinical areas with an expertise in critical care as emergency response nurse. During that time, she also was a member on the Nursing Practice Council with Allina Health, a nurse union steward, and clinical educator. She developed programs and education to improve potentially-preventable hospital readmissions. Jessica also has experience as a nurse consultant, clinic director, school nurse, and development and director of nursing of a new assisted living facility. Jessica transition into nursing education in 2013, developing clinical innovation and process quality improvement to strengthen education for nursing students.

In 2020, Jessica established a new, no-cost school-based health center (SBHC) in a public school district to improve health care access for uninsured and underinsured children. Partnering with community organizations, Jessica hopes to further expand SBHCs across the state to correct health disparities and provide clinical experiences sites for interprofessional post-secondary students. She is dedicated to health system reform by interrupting current barriers created by the social determinants of health and challenging oppressive structural systems. Jessica's goals include influencing community, state, and national legislation to achieve accessible, affordable health care.

Jessica received her BSN from Clarke College (Dubuque, IA), MSN-Clinical Nurse Leader from the University of Iowa, and Doctor of Nursing Practice degree from St. Catherine University. She currently serves on several boards, including Children's Performing Arts, Minnesota School-Based Health Alliance, and Bear Care Health and Wellness Clinic.
