In better than 600 First Nations communities across Canada, there are 76 nursing stations and more than 195 health centers. Nurses are often the main point of contact with the community health care system. In nearly half of the health facilities, the RNs are employed by Health Canada, which is part of the federal government.

Regional offices of the SPNI provide service, support and management, dealing, for example, the orientation of newly recruited nurses. BSI develops standards, policies, guidelines and leads national initiatives.
