Alaska Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nursing Jobs

The health care industry in Alaska has generated more new jobs, mostly nursing jobs, than any other industry in the state in the past decade. However, Alaska is still in the midst of a serious nursing shortage, much like other states. Nursing educators are in high demand to increase the number of nursing school graduates and help ease the stress on hospitals because of the shortage. Qualified nursing candidates at all levels are sought after, especially in the city areas of Anchorage, Fairbanks, and Juneau.

Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nursing

Wound, ostomy and continence nurses care for patients that have wounds (including ulcers and those caused by injury), ostemies (artificial openings that allow for alternate disposal of bodily wastes) and/or incontinence. The major professional organization is the Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nurses Society (WOCN). Certification is maintained by the Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nursing Certification Board (WOCNCB), and their CWOCN, COCN, CWCN and CCCN credentials are accredited by the Accreditation Board for Specialty Nursing Certification (ABSNC) and the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA). The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts excellent, overall job growth for registered nurses. The median registered nurse salary is $62,450.
