FORT BELKNAP AGENCY – The Aaniiih Nakoda College and the Phillips County Hospital are teaming up to train registered nurses.

Students at the new Aaniiih Nakoda nursing program will work with staff at the hospital for nursing clinical rotations, as well as at the Fort Belknap Health Center.

“Students will have an opportunity to exercise their critical thinking skills because in a rural hospital, you are the best resource for the patient,” LaVerne Parker, nursing program director, told the Phillips County News. “You have to be ready for anything that walks through the door.”
