WMC and Wrangell, a great place to make a difference
Forget commuting. Walk or bike to work with eagles soaring overhead. And after work, fishing, hiking, hunting, kayaking, is just minutes away. We are a small critical access hospital in a safe, walkable island community. We are a mission and vision focused organization emphasizing high quality of patient care. This is a wonderful opportunity for an RN who enjoys the challenge of rural generalist nursing, where you draw on a wide range of skills needed to work in all areas of the facility including ER, ICU/CCU, Acute Care, and Long Term Care.
In a community the size of Wrangell (the last census showed our population at just over 2,800) it is easy for one person to make a difference and with many opportunities to become involved in community life,you'll soon find the niche that is perfect for you.
With the great outdoors as our back yard, Wrangell boast many additional amenities, such as a community pool, fitness facility, racquetball court, exceptional public library, cultural center and museum, weekend movie theatre, several restaurants, and a USGA-rated 9 hole golf course (the only one in Southeast Alaska!). We have an active Elks Lodge, Chamber of Commerce, numerous special interest groups and clubs from running to quilting, and an organic produce grocery store.
At Wrangell Medical Center, staff development is one of our important values. We provide regular continuing education and encourage staff to grow in their careers.

The rural pace of life in Wrangell is a comfort
