I am a Senior Nursing student in a BSN program and graduate next week. I am just curious if you currently have any travel nurse jobs available in Alaska? I want to travel nurse to Alaska within the next year. I’m just curious what the next step is in the process?


Tyler thank you for your question and congratulations on your upcoming graduation!

In order to start your career in Travel Nursing you will need to have completed one full year working as an RN; see our graduate nurse information page.  It’s preferred that the majority of your experience be in an acute care setting, as that is where you will find the most availability for your specialty. The first step to getting started is to apply online at www.americantraveler.com .  Once your application is received you will be contacted by a consultant to discuss your plans and travel nurse career goals. Although you might not be looking at starting till next year, it’s never to early to fill out the application and begin the process. The application skills check list is a great tool to use to see what areas you can gain new experience in and improve on as you work. You can update it as often as you like! The year will go quick and you will be glad you started the process and have established a relationship with your consultant.

As for travel nurse job destinations that we go to; the possibilities are endless! We service all 50 states. So whether your looking for “big city” Anchorage, remote villages like Barrow or the charming southern islands of Alaska – we have you covered! And once you completed that journey; we have 49 other fine states for your choosing! The possibilities are amazing!

Best of Luck!

    Hello Bety and thank you for your interest in American Traveler. One of our expert consultants will contact you. Also, here is a tip, nurses seeking travel nurse jobs in Alaska are advised that a temporary Alaska license takes about 4 weeks. Nowadays, most health care facilities in Alaska are requesting travelers who have already been granted the license. Candidates interested in Alaska are encouraged to apply for the license right away in anticipation of positions – go to http://www.dced.state.ak.us/occ/pnur1.htm.
