Developing a diverse, qualified candidate pool for employment in health care systems across the Milwaukee area
Return to Listing
According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics (2020), health care careers account for the largest gap between available talent and the number of job openings. As of August 2020, the nationwide shortage was a staggering 1,107,000 positions. Wisconsin health care organizations reflect the national shortage, with vacancies in registered nurses, lab technologists, surgical technicians, and certified nursing assistant roles.
Through this award, project partners will create a workforce pipeline to support the region's high-growth health care industry through a focused, employer-led, demand-driven training program aimed at creating a diverse candidate pool for Advocate Aurora Health and other health systems across the greater Milwaukee area.
