Didn't the UWEC School of Nursing have a clinical experience that you could participate in on the Menomonie Indian Reservation?
I graduated from the UW Nursing School
in Madison in 1978 and I remember that some of my fellow students did clinicals at the various reservations around the state.
Anyway, I know that the Indian Health Care facilities are much improved because of casino money and improved federal funding. Lots of community outreach and education being done. Diabetes is especially prevalent amoung the Native American population, so this is a big focus.
I would recommend getting a public health nurse certificate. The jobs that I have seen on reservations here in California usually require this as a prerequisite. There is a public health nurse position being advertised right now for the Chumash Indian Clinic
that starts at $62,000/yr!
