I will be moving to Fairbanks in summer 2009 after I graduate from nursing school. Does anyone know how many openings FMH typically has for new grads? Any information would be helpful. Thanks!

Fairbanks just graduated 16 students and 15 got a job at FMH. They did however go through the program in Fairbanks and received their clinical experience at FMH which probably gives them a hand up over out of state new grads. Fairbanks is not suffering the RN job shortage as bad a Anchorage though. I know right now that the women's center could probably use some post partum RN's.
