    Hey, rrockstar88

    I am a new grad and just got hired on at an IHS facility. I graduated in June and started to aggressively apply in October. It took a while but I finally got a phone interview and was hired, well conditionally. I have to pass all the required federal background and finger print checks. Just keep applying on usajobs.gov, I hear the OK IHS really needs nurses, they called after I had already started the process with Navajo facility. It takes a while to hear back once an application is submitted.

    I don't work for Indian health services but I do work in a community hospital that services alot of American Indians. There is alot of cultural considerations with the patiens and families but as a whole I love it.

    Federal or not the best way to get your foot in the door is to call the nurse recruiter. They can help your applicatin along in the federal system. PM me if you want a list of Navajo area recruiters. I am not allowed to post names or contact info on this site. Ridersofrohan8 is my gmail.

    Hi Rohan8,

    I was just perusing the site and came upon your post! I still have about a year of nursing school left, but I have recently contacted a nursing recruiter for IHS and also for the commissioned corps. I'd have to do more research but I am really, really interested in working at one of the reservations. The recruiter (Naomi) mentioned that Tuba City was a good place to start applying as a new grad. I currently live in Chicago. Do you have any advice?

    Thanks so much,
    Megan
