  12. Advice on finding a job???
    Try St. Elias Specialty Hospital in Anchorage. They were hiring new grads a few months ago. It's an LTAC (Long Term Acute Care), meaning, it is an Acute Care hospital, not a long term nursing home...

  18. New grad discouraged about job oppurtunity
    I don't. I think it's a specialty that you need to feel a calling to, just like any other nursing specialty. To be honest, I didn't want to work there initially -- I just applied because I had to...
