Case Study - Southwest/Western Colorado Health Care Initiative

The Southwest Colorado Workforce Center has launched a sector partnership to address healthcare industry challenges in recruitment and retention. Geography is a challenge in recruitment, and higher skilled positions are difficult to fill. The industry reports high turnover due to burnout and strong competition from other industries.

Case Study - Northwest/Western Colorado Healthcare Partnership

The Mesa County Workforce Center has long had the healthcare industry as a targeted sector. Ten years ago the long term health care industry approached them for help in creating a career ladder to move CNAs into careers in more skilled nursing positions (LPN, RN). Following that work, and continuing to listen to the needs of employers, they helped establish a career ladder for emergency medical technicians and paramedics, and cross-walked this to the CNA ladder to create a larger career lattice.
