Psychiatric and Mental Health Nurse Practitioner*, F/T– HPSA 21
A mountain resort town, Ruidoso lies in the rugged Sierra Blanca mountain range of southcentral New Mexico, where it merges with the Sacramento Mountains to the south. Ruidoso is a rapidly growing resort community due to the region's alpine scenery, the Ruidoso Downs racetrack, and the slopes of Ski Apache, the Mescalero Apache Tribe-owned ski resort on Sierra Blanca, a 12,000-foot (3,700 m) mountain. The tribe also operates the Inn of the Mountain Gods resort in the area, which includes a casino, hotel, and golf course. Ruidoso is the largest community in Lincoln County. The village received its name from the Rio Ruidoso (Spanish for "Noisy River"), a small stream that weaves through the city.
