7th Annual Native Nations Nursing Summit

November 19, 2021

Choices of Today for the Next Seven Generations

Many Native American Tribes believe the philosophy that healthy choices today can create a more positive future for the next seven generations.

Join us VIRTUALLY for the Native Nations Nursing Virtual Summit to learn about evidence-based approaches and best practices for optimal, culturally congruent health care in Native American communities. This year's summit will be provided by LIVE Webinar.

PRACTICE GAPS AND NEEDS

Evidence based approaches addressing health disparities in Native American communities, such as integrated health care services, are not well known or routinely implemented into current systems. Nurses need to know this information to provide culturally aware health care services and to be an effective ally. 

Nurses have a unique position and perspective in Native American communities that makes it important for them to be allies and advocates. To be an effective ally in Native American communities, nurses need to know the why, how, and foundations of Tribal community healthcare initiatives.  

Only about 10% of the nurses working in Tribal Clinics identify as Native American while nearly 100% of the patients are Native American. Native Americans comprise about 2% of the Wisconsin population while Native American nurses in Wisconsin comprise only about .05% of the nursing workforce. 

The 7th Annual Native Nations Nursing Summit will focus on the choices that are being made today, and how they will affect the next seven generations. Summit speakers will highlight initiatives that focus on the health of Native American communities today and for future generations. 

ELEMENTS OF COMPETENCE

This summit is designed to improve learner competence and focuses on the Interprofessional and nursing areas of values/ethics for interprofessional practice and interprofessional communication

AUDIENCE

Native and non-Native nurses, current nursing students, schools of nursing school advisors and recruiters, and anyone interested in supporting the health of tribal communities.

Learning Objectives

By the end of the summit learners will be able to:

  • Identify best practices to provide culturally congruent care
  • Explain current initiatives by Tribal healthcare systems to keep communities safe during the current public health crisis
  • Apply principles of holistic and Indigenous healthcare into current public health initiatives

SPEAKERS

Madalyn Johns MSN, RN
Tribal Affilliation: Chickasaw Nation and Oneida Nation of Wisconsin

Madalyn Johns is a member of the Chickasaw Nation and descendant of the Oneida Tribe of Wisconsin. She attended the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse for her undergraduate studies where she received a Bachelor of Science in biology. While studying at UWL, Madalyn was the president of the Native American Student Association for four years. During her time as president, she led the initiative to pass a university wide policy that recognizes the sacred Ho-Chunk land the institution resides on. After graduation from UWL, Madalyn moved back home to the Milwaukee area where she began employment at the Gerald L. Ignace Indian Health Center in Milwaukee, WI. Here she worked in the medical department as a nursing assistant as well as with the Youth Empowerment Project as a youth mentor, focusing on substance abuse and suicide prevention for Native youth. Madalyn then attended graduate school at Marquette University where she earned a Master’s of Science in Nursing through the direct entry program. Shortly after graduation, she traveled to Oklahoma where she spent some time serving a nursing internship with the Chickasaw Nation at the Chickasaw Nation Medical Center. In the spring of 2019, Madalyn found her way back to both Milwaukee and the Gerald L. Ignace Indian Health Center where she is currently working as a registered nurse. Her roles include staff nurse, behavioral health care coordination nurse and infection control officer. In everything she does, Madalyn demonstrates her profound passion for serving her community.
