    This is the best I can do...I visited Alaska with my husband. We agreed when he retired, I would do travel Nursing there. I spoke with a few nurses, and they loved it. They have Native American Hospitals there. I found it interesting. I would go and live there in a heartbeat, all sun time or all night time.

    I live in Ketchikan, AK, which is the southernmost city in Alaska. It is similar to Juneau in climate as in wet but not too cold. I can't speak for all of Alaska but can tell you we are pretty deperate down here for nurses. We need OB, ICU, ER, House Supervisors, you name it we need it. We take staff, travelers, and private contracts. I don't know specifically which agencies we use but I could find out pretty easily if you want to PM me I will get back to you. I work OB and if there are any OB travelers out there that are interested I REALLY want to hear from you!

    I am in Alaska now doing a critical care contract---Anchorage. I love Alaska, but not the assignment. I hope to do other areas t/o Alaska. I know Barrow, Bethel, Sitka and Ketchikan are always looking. You have Homer, also, once in awhile.

    Hello,

    I am right next door in the Yukon. It sounds like there is a need for contract RNs in Alaska. For my review so far most of the big contract companies seem to forget about Alaska. Any suggestions to which company I should contact?
