A fellow Tribe Member stated- “Best way I’ve found is typing up a letter stating exactly what I need, copy of my resume, copy of program requirements, and going in person to facilities and speaking to people in person. I usually send an email to the clinical coordinator/educator at the facility I’m looking at asking if they have any availability. I’ve also dropped in and left the packet I’ve made with my contact info.”
