Kodiak, Alaska - Seeking an exemplary, autonomous Palliative Care (PC) nurse practitioner who is interested in working in a unique and beautiful rural location. Ideal candidate will have a passion for rural medicine, will value collaboration with Primary Care, and will strive for extraordinary continuity of care.

Full-time position with desirable Monday - Friday schedule with standard clinic hours and on-call hours. Competitive compensation, comprehensive benefits, and relocation bonus are available.

Facility Description

As the only hospital on Kodiak Island, Providence Kodiak Island Medical Center is the sole provider of acute and emergency care. Accredited by The Joint Commission and designated as a Level IV trauma center by the State of Alaska, this 25-bed Critical Access Hospital plays an indispensable role in the lives of nearly 14,000 residents in the city of Kodiak, the Coast Guard base and neighboring villages. With an MRI, 64-slice CT and other state-of-the-art equipment, our physicians and a cadre of visiting specialists are able to provide advanced care right here in Kodiak. The hospital receives high marks from patients, physicians and employees alike.

Location Description

Alaska offers financial, cultural and recreational opportunities beyond compare. There is no state income tax; in fact the state pays every Alaskan a yearly dividend from oil revenues! Kodiak is famous for its fishing, huge Kodiak brown bears and lush forested mountains. But Kodiak Islanders also pride themselves on lesser known features: excellent public and private schools, organized youth sports, several churches, museums, and dozens of community events. The island’s tight-knit population of 14,000 residents is surprisingly diverse, with significant groups of Alaska Natives, Asians, Hispanics and Pacific Islanders. Nature is never far away in Kodiak. Within minutes of the hospital you can be beachcombing, jogging through a magnificent forest, or fighting a feisty salmon on a pristine stream.
