Nasha Sinclair, RN
Clinic Informatics Nurse
Why do you choose to be a nurse?
I chose to be a Nurse because ever since I can remember I have been chasing my siblings, friends, and cousins with hydrogen peroxide and bandages. I've always wanted to be a nurse and my cousin Annesha Anderson, RN, BSN, OBRNC has always supported this in me. She was a student herself when I became pregnant with my first child, Jayson and she were with me explaining everything to me and holding my hand. I took an interest in OB when I was a preceptor in the Dedicated Education Unit (DEU) in my second year in Nursing School at SKC. I fell in love with OB Nursing and took up certifications in Fetal Heart Rate Monitoring, PACS, and NRP. I came to Tribal Health to work closer to my community and work closely with chronically ill patients in our Tribe. When I started working with Tribal Health I was an all clinics RN, where I filled in for people in any clinic that needed coverage. I worked with Milissa Grandchamp, FNP-C as her Clinic Nurse before becoming the Care Coordinator RN in Polson where I took calls, helped with referrals and generally coordinated care for our chronically ill patients. When we moved to EPIC I became a Credentialed Trainer, having worked with EPIC when I was with PSJMC.
Favorite part of nursing?
My favorite part of nursing is helping people. Although I work with Clinic Informatics now and do not see patients, I do make my way to the clinic and help out my fellow coworkers. I love my job now because I am behind the scenes helping out my fellow colleagues.
I APPRECIATE ALL OF YOU!!!
