BISMARCK, North Dakota — There were few role models in medicine that aspiring doctor Tamsen O'Berry could look to for support on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation, so she carved out her own track.
The 33-year-old graduated from the Sanford College of Nursing with top honors two weeks ago and has a job lined up at Sanford Health in Bismarck. But O'Berry is in the minority among the 13,500 nurses in North Dakota: Only about 170, or 1 percent, are American Indian.
