Alaska Nursing Colleges, Schools and Programs

College Degree Finder

Unlike other states in the nation, Alaska has and probably always will have a strong economy. And notwithstanding the fact that Alaska supports a smaller population than most other states, there is still a high demand for licensed practical nurses, registered nurses and nurse practitioners in hospitals, medical clinics and healthcare facilities in every populated region in the state.

The most job opportunities for nurses are found in and around the major metropolitan centers of Anchorage, Juneau, and Fairbanks. One of the largest healthcare employers in Alaska, Providence Health and Services, including its subsidiary Providence Alaska Medical Center in Anchorage, are continuing to hire qualified nurses on a regular basis. Many other similar healthcare employers are also looking for good nurses.

If you want to learn more about becoming a nurse in Alaska you will want to contact the Alaska Board of Nursing to explore licensure requirements. After that, you may want to get involved with the Alaska Nurses Association and start networking with other healthcare professionals in Alaska.
