Welcome to Alaska's Public Health Nursing's web site.

I hope 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!

Chief of Public Health Nursing
