The Muscogee Creek Nation Department of Health would like to introduce Annette James as the new Chief Nurse Executive for the Muscogee (Creek) Nation Department of Health. Annette is a member of the Creek and Seminole tribes of Oklahoma. She currently resides in Checotah with her husband John.
Prior to joining the Muscogee (Creek) Nation Department of Health, Annette worked in Alaska for the State as the Deputy Chief of Nursing and the Southwest Regional Nurse Manager. She also worked in Minnesota for the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe as the Public Health Director and the Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa as the Lead Public Health Nurse.
Annette received an Associate of Science degree from Seminole State College, a Bachelor of Nursing degree from the University of Oklahoma and a Master of Science in Nursing with a minor in Public Health from the University of Minnesota.
“The Chief Nurse Executive position provided me the opportunity to return to Oklahoma and share my nursing experience with the citizens of Creek Nation,” said James. “It’s exciting to be a part of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation Department of Health as we embark on new adventures.”
