Nursing in Dawson City
Come to the hospital at the heart of the Klondike gold rush!
Dawson City Community Hospital welcomes all people to our facility. We are grateful to provide help, healing and care within the Traditional Territory of Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in.
Working in Dawson City Community Hospital is the perfect opportunity to experience rural nursing in a supportive environment while enjoying Canada’s true Klondike and all the fun it has to offer. Rural nursing is about doing everything, and here in Dawson that’s true – from being the front line when an emergency comes in, to drawing blood and performing x-rays, to sitting with our patients and playing a hand of cards. We are about high quality medicine and the personal touch. The great thing about working in Dawson is that you do all that – with an amazing team around you for support.
Dawson City is known for its tight community, long days of midnight sun, spectacular hiking in Tombstone National Park, and great times at the local film festival, Discovery Days celebrations, Thaw-di-Gras, or the Moosehide Gathering. Our hospital staff are an integral part of that community, playing in the softball league, participating in the annual lip sync challenge, and raising money to donate to our local charities.

Nursing in Watson Lake
We are the Gateway to the Yukon.
Watson Lake is a small community that welcomes tourists on their way to Whitehorse and Alaska. You may have heard of our world-famous Sign Post Forest (recently featured on a chocolate bar!), which was started in World War II by a homesick soldier. Since then, visitors from all over the world have added to this iconic landmark, making it a true one-of-a-kind destination!
Our hospital team keeps our community and travelers safe and healthy whether they live here, or are just passing through.
