Public Health Nursing

Welcome to the Section of Public Health Nursing for the State of Alaska!

We implement population-based, evidence-supported strategies in a sustainable and culturally appropriate manner to address the identified health priorities of our communities, Section, and Division, while prioritizing at-risk populations. We endeavor to sustain public health nursing partnerships with community members, health care providers, and state-wide associations and businesses to collectively work towards improving the health of Alaskans.

Performance Measures: It is important for Public Health Nursing to regularly update and post our performance measures. Click on the image to view the PDF, and use the live links to learn more about our progress and activities.

Public Health Nursing is contributing every day to the improvement of the health of Alaskans and their families. We are excited to be working with communities to create community solutions that will solve public health concerns and improve the health of Alaskans in the years to come. There are many challenges in public health in Alaska--and you can count on public health nurses to be ready for them. Thank you for visiting our website. Please contact us if you have questions or if we can assist you.
