If you love a new adventure, unparalleled natural beauty and endless outdoor activities, you might want to consider Alaska for your next travel nurse assignment. The Nation's largest state (twice the size of Texas!) offers an experience like none other. Whether you want to see grizzly bears, bald eagles, or polar bears, nurses on assignment in Alaska are sure to see something new every day!
Alaska isn't just igloos and dark winters. In fact, everywhere south of the Arctic Circle will see sunlight for at least part of the day, and summers average 70 degrees, getting as warm as 90 degrees near Fairbanks. Travel nurses can enjoy whitewater rafting, fishing, and kayaking on some of Alaska’s three million lakes. Or if you're an RN who prefers being on land, check out a dog sled race, try snowmobiling, or take a tour of one of Alaska's many parks while comfortably riding a train on one of the state's sophisticated railroad systems.
With 29 volcanoes and 33,000 miles of coastline, and an estimated 100,000 glaciers, traveling nurses have plenty to explore while on assignment in Alaska. Nurses can enjoy a visit to Glacier Bay National Park, Denali National Park, or take an air taxi to Mt. McKinley.
While you are surrounded by nature, most populated parts of Alaska offer all the modern amenities you desire, from cable and high- speed internet, to grocery stores, Wal-marts, and malls. If you’re a travel nurse in Anchorage or Fairbanks, you can eat at a 5-star restaurant, or go see a Broadway musical. Need some relaxation after a long hospital shift? Make an appointment at a day spa and get that much needed R&R all nurses deserves!
Alaska offers a unique blend of culture, wilderness, and adventure. Advance your nursing career with an experience you’ll never forget. Give us a call today and ask about travel nurse opportunities in Alaska that are right for you!
