Anybody have any more updates about working/living in Shiprock area. I recently accepted an IHS position at Shiprock as part of a service obligation.

How was your experience in Shiprock? I am applying for a 13 week RN job there. They have said they have furnished housing for nurses. Do you know what that is like? ANy info on the Indian Health Service hospital there or the housing would be very appreciated.

13 week? So I'm assuming as a contract nurse? IHS utilizes them a lot. At the IHS I'm at (also in NM) we have 6 contract nurses. I also have a friend who is transferring to Shiprock next week. I can't answer specific questions about that service unit, but I can about IHS. Feel free to message me.

Thanks. Yes, going to contract for a travel nurse job. My name is going in for a job at Gallup Indian Hospital now. Was going to Shiprock, but didn't get my name in quick enough. Know anything about Gallup?

TRS agency has several travel nurse jobs listed with the Indian health System. I googled IHS nurse jobs for New Mexico and found several.

I didn't end up going to Shiprock again. Another opportunity came up that was more aligned with my career goals.
