Available Position: Emergency Room Nurse Practitioner

Place of Performance: The Gallup Indian Medical Center, Gallup, NM  87301. Services are to be performed at hospitals, clinics and other healthcare facilities of the Navajo Area Indian Health Service within the Gallup Indian Medical Center.

Background:  IHS is an agency within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and is responsible for providing federal health services to American Indians and Alaska Natives.

The goal is to assure that comprehensive, culturally acceptable personal and public health services are available and accessible to American Indians and Alaska Natives. The IHS currently provides health services to approximately 1.5 million American Indians and Alaska Natives who belong to more than 557 federally recognized tribes in 34 states. There is a nationwide shortage of nurses and other healthcare professionals, which is amplified by the remote and rural areas served by the Indian Health Service.
