What Our Nurses Say:
"I have never been prouder to tell people about my workplace. The values that Indwell represents can be felt on every level of the organization. I have been humbled by the resilience of the population we serve. The emphasis on relationships first and the use of a truly holistic approach have made this the most rewarding work I have ever been a part of."


"Where else could I practice the skills and employ the knowledge I have, in a way that is so meaningful and relational?  Somewhere that an intramuscular injection demonstrates trust and relationship.  Where else can I be a nurse while simultaneously being so 'human'?  Somewhere my 'clients' see and respect my humanity first, and my title and credentials second.  The 8hr shifts, street clothes, lack of night shifts, benefits, caring management, interdisciplinary team, autonomy, and common goal for hope and homes are just icing on this cake." "It is a unique environment to work with teammates who are so like-minded, while also bringing a diverse complement of experience and backgrounds."
