Spotlight on Douglas Accountius

Douglas started his nursing career as a Medical Technician in the United States Air Force (USAF) on the medical/surgical unit at Carswell AFB, TX in January 1982. He moved from that position to the emergency room as an Emergency Medical Technician and then as an Independent Duty Medical Technician deployed to the Pacific Rim and the Middle East. Just prior retiring from USAF in 1999, he challenged the NCLEX and became a registered nurse. After his retirement, Douglas worked as a Registry Nurse in San Diego, California. In 2002, he began working as an RN in the emergency room at Northern Navajo Medical Center (NNMC). He also worked as House Supervisor then in Staff Development for the facility.

Missing patient care, Douglas went back to school, obtaining his BSN at Excelsior College in Albany, New York in 2004. In 2016, he completed his MSN at the University of New Mexico and become an Acute Care Nurse Practitioner (ACNP). He’s board certified in Adult Geriatric-ACNP practice by the American Nurses Credentialing Center and currently works in the emergency room at NNMC on the Navajo Reservation in Shiprock, New Mexico.

In addition to working in the emergency room, Douglas actively teaches ACLS, PALS and BLS for the facility. He’s also a certified FEMA instructor for Incident Command, periodically teaching in the state and serving as one of the Incident Commanders for NNMC.

Douglas likes to be outside working on his yard, going for walks and enjoying time with his family. During the football season, he also coaches middle school football as Offense Coordinator. He’s active in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and enjoys helping others.
