Staff

Our staff professionals include licensed practical nurses and registered nurses; certified nursing assistants; physical, recreational and occupational therapists; and a medical doctor.

Many of our certified nursing assistants received their degrees through a program developed by the University of Alaska Southeast and began their careers at Wildflower Court as well-supervised student interns.

Itinerant professionals also schedule regular visits.
