NC Sentinel: new statewide initiative now open for health care employers to share needs, concerns

Sheps Health Workforce NC is working with the North Carolina Area Health Education Centers (NC AHEC) and many health workforce groups and associations to launch a statewide initiative to gather health workforce concerns about recruitment, retention, and workforce skill needs.

This effort – the NC Sentinel Network – is a tool to understand health employers’ real-time workforce needs and make that information available to educator and policymakers so they can take action right away.

We plan to gather this information twice a year so it will be timely and actionable; it will be used to inform the efforts of the forthcoming strategic planning body, the NC Center for Health Workforce.

If your organization provides health care services or employs any health-related workers, you are invited to contribute – we want to hear from you!
