Nursing at the Alaska Native Medical Center

The Alaska Native Medical Center (ANMC) is a 167-bed hospital providing comprehensive medical services to Alaska Native and American Indian people living in the state. In 2003, ANMC became the first hospital in Alaska to receive Magnet® designation for nursing excellence. Today, we remain Alaska’s only Magnet-recognized hospital, the highest honor bestowed to a health care organization for nursing excellence.




Nursing at ANMC

Our Magnet nurses provide culturally appropriate, family-centered care in a unique hospital environment. Among ANMC’s health care team, our nurses are viewed as respected partners, collaborators and leaders. They are constantly seeking ways to improve the services and care we provide, from processes and initiatives to technology and equipment. More than 80 percent of our front line nurses hold Bachelor of Science in Nursing degrees and 45 percent have received specialty certifications.

ANMC was Alaska’s first hospital to receive Level II Trauma designation in 1999, providing the highest level of trauma care possible to our patients. ANMC serves as the referral center for every Tribal health facility in the state.
