Clinical Nursing Services

Registered nurses work at all of our Tribal Clinics to help care for patients presenting to the clinic for a medical appointment.  In addition, the registered nurse staff a ‘nurse only’ schedule to provide on-going care to meet some of the patient needs.  The nurse only service provides:

  • Injections – e.g., allergy shots, family planning, and other injections ordered by the primary care provider
  • Immunizations – e.g., flu shots, pneumovax,  etc
  • Wound care
  • EKG’s (with order)
  • Medication reviews
  • Patient education & DM foot exams
  • Blood pressure checks and others

Nurse-only appointments can be scheduled at any of the four main clinics and are available during normal clinic hours.  Services are coordinated, in many instances, through a primary care provider order or referral.
