"Everything you do, you can see it making a difference. You're working toward a goal to improve the health of our families and communities." - Nurse Consultant and member of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians
Indian Health offers nurses extraordinary opportunities to provide comprehensive care in culturally rich Native American Indian and Alaska Native communities throughout 35 states. They may have the opportunity to entwine Native American Indian traditional way of life with modern medicine. They fulfill critical roles in clinics, hospitals and public health outreach programs that are vital to the health of American Indian and Alaska Native individuals, families and communities. Nurses who share Indian Health values enjoy living and working in some of the most beautiful areas of the country, in communities with deep traditions, located mainly, but not exclusively in small reservation towns and rural settings. Whether you are a new graduate nurse or experienced nurse looking for new challenges, you can find it with Indian Health Nursing.
