Why Our Resident Clinicians Adore Alaska
Aside from Alaska’s LPN, RN, and CNA job opportunities, there are overwhelming reasons to love living in this state. Alaska’s heartland is home to the continent’s highest peak, Mount Denali. This peak is surrounded by its self-named Denali National Park which is a popular location for viewing the Aurora Borealis, and viewing the diverse wildlife either by taking the train, backpacking trips or even by air taxi.
Southwest Alaska is popular for freshwater fishing, bear sightings, and the volcanoes of Katmai National Park. Cross into the arctic circle if you aren’t afraid of the cold and participate in the winter festivals or settle in and relax at Chena Hot Springs, a resort featuring natural hot springs. Perhaps you’ll spend most of your time in the most populous part of the state, south-central Alaska. There you’ll explore the opportunities for fishing, wildlife viewing, and hiking.
Day cruises are popular for tourists and residents alike, who have just a short time (hello working nurses and assistants, this is you). You don’t need to schedule a lot of time off in order to experience everything the wilderness of Alaska has on offer.

Nurses Specializing in Radiology Are in Demand Now
Radiology nurses are also at times referred to as medical imaging nurses. Their position is a crucial role in diagnostics, utilizing cutting edge technology that provides a window to the inner workings of the human body. Advancements being made today enable diagnostic testing to be less invasive, more accurate, less painful, and more insightful.
This specialty is important, but one that nursing students don’t often have the option of for clinical rotation. As such, more experienced nurses find their way to the specialty later in their careers. Due to the highly-specialized nature of the position, the PRN shifts for radiology clinicians through Nursa™ are some of our highest compensated.
Where Do Radiology Nurses Work?
Medical imaging nurses can find themselves working in a myriad of settings. Their skills are utilized in research centers, prestigious teaching hospitals, freestanding radiology clinics, and outpatient imaging centers, and community hospitals.
Often radiology nurses benefit from having previous work experience in the emergency department, an intensive care unit, a cardiac cath lab, or the post-anesthesia care unit. Their expertise is often utilized in the fields of Endocrinology, Neurology, Oncology, and Procedural Recovery Units.
What Do Radiology Nurses Do?
Radiology nurses are highly specialized because of the intricacies of the testing they perform. The diagnostics that they commonly perform include: X-Rays, Mammograms, Ultrasounds, Vascular or Neuro Interventional Radiology, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Computed Tomography (CT scans), Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber, Positron Emission Tomography (PET scans), and more.
Radiology specialty nurse care isn’t only about the machines, however. They complete interviews and assessments of patients prior to the diagnostic testing, they monitor the patient throughout the procedure, and after. Additionally, they provide education to the patient and their family and collaborate with specialists.
Necessary Traits of a Successful Radiology Nurse
A medical imaging clinician needs to be adept and dexterous in the handling of machines and technology to cause the minimum amount of discomfort to patients. Keen assessment, observation, and analytical skills are required as well to handle patients who are grappling with anxieties, fears, and physical limitations. Compassion and efficiency serve to support patients through a procedure with care and practicality.
Recommended Certifications for Radiology Nurses
The Association for Radiologic & Imaging Nurses offers courses and certifications to nurses interested in radiology, including the Certified Radiology Nurse (CRN) certification after a certain amount of experience and formal training has been completed. Other certifications may be required or preferred depending on the work setting.
