HealthCARE Montana recruits, trains and retains healthcare professionals. This grant-funded project builds partnerships among Montana’s Area Health Education Center offices, two-year and community colleges, and healthcare employers.
The collaborative effort aims to increase the number of trained healthcare professionals in rural and frontier Montana by:
- Helping prospective adult students identify and pursue healthcare certificates or two-year degrees, and supporting them through their education to ensure academic success;
- Developing an accelerated nursing curriculum to guide healthcare providers toward higher levels of practice and to ease the nursing shortage in Montana;
- Increasing opportunities for on-the-job training by developing healthcare apprenticeships; and,
- Building and sustaining a rural “home-grown” healthcare workforce that serves the smallest communities in the farthest regions of Montana.
