My understanding from the UAA website is that there is a distance learning option in Fairbanks? Does this include the BSN?
Also, I realize that the job market is tough for new grads everywhere. But DH and I are hoping to put down roots in AK, as this will be his last duty station and our home state (OH) is saturated with nurses. How likely is it that a new grad can find work in Fairbanks? Elsewhere in AK?
I'm okay with moving from Fairbanks; I just want somewhere nice that I can raise my kids.

- Jan 29, '12 by jenndavisHello. My husband(currently deployed) and I are stationed here in Fairbanks. UAA has a distance nursing program, but right now its just an ADN. The BSN is only offered through UAA home campus. The nursing program here is offered through CTC of UAF. I don't know much about the job market up here. Fairbanks memorial is the regional hospital and receives wonderful reviews. There is also the hospital on post, Bassett Army Communiy hospital. I love Fairbanks and am sad to leave in August. My husbadn and I are planning on returning one day. The community is awesome and there is always something to do; even when the weather hits -45 like it is right now!
- Jan 30, '12 by RHC81Thanks, Jenndavis! Thanks for the info. I wish they had a BSN, but that's ok.
I have heard so many nice things about Fairbanks, and DH and I love cold. After being stationed in the South for most of his career (we're OCONUS right now), -45 will be a welcome change!
Best of luck to you, wherever the Army sends you next.
