Welcome to Alaska's Public Health Nursing's web site.
you will get some idea of why I believe that public health nursing
in Alaska is a great professional opportunity and personal adventure.
Alaska is truly a land of possibilities.
Public health nursing is contributing every day to the improvement
of the health of Alaskans and their families. We are excited to be working with communities to solve public health concerns
and to create community solutions that will improve the health
of all Alaskans in the years to come. There are many challenges
in public health in Alaska — and you can count on public health
nursing to be ready for them.
Thank you for visiting our web site. Please let us know if you
have questions or if we can assist you.
Have a great visit!
