Workforce Recruitment and Retention


The North Dakota Primary Care Office (ND PCO) partners with the University of North Dakota Center for Rural Health (CRH) to assist rural and underserved communities with workforce recruitment and retention. Together, the ND PCO and CRH work in all aspects of the healthcare workforce pipeline:

  • introduction to health careers for middle and high school-aged kids
  • providing education and support to individuals actively pursuing a healthcare degree
  • assisting with the job seeking process, and connecting eligible workforce to recruitment and retention incentive programs

Our goal is to work together to assure that quality health care professionals are available to serve citizens from every corner of the state.
