Building our regional healthcare workforce

Increasing the region’s healthcare workforce has never been more important than it is today. Workforce Innovation at The Health Collaborative is committed to expanding access to healthcare careers and convening employers, educators, students, and community collaborators to address the healthcare workforce shortage.

We need to be prepared for the increase in demand that is projected in the next 10 years to ensure quality healthcare for our region.

Aligning data-driven workforce development efforts

Healthcare is our region’s top employment sector and one of the fastest growing. Our latest data reveals the importance of aligning efforts to meet workforce demands and build a workforce reflective of our community.

Building a more robust nursing talent pipeline

Nurses represent more than 20% of the healthcare workforce yet, the region’s current nursing education system simply doesn’t graduate enough students to meet demand.

Workforce Innovation has been working with regional partners to increase the number of students graduating from high school and post-secondary programs with nursing credentials. Together, we formed the Southwest Ohio Healthcare Education and Workforce Coalition, and are fully committed to expanding access, promoting nursing career pathways, and increasing the diversity of our nursing workforce.

Expanding healthcare career exploration

The Health Collaborative offers numerous options for students and job seekers to explore healthcare careers and for employers to engage in initiatives to build their future workforce.

Solving healthcare workforce issues that can only be solved collectively


One of our primary activities is convening healthcare employers, educators, and community organizations to support the viability of our healthcare systems and their future needs for healthcare talent. 

Together, we remove barriers and limitations by identifying and addressing underlying issues that constrict access to and success in earning healthcare credentials and degrees.

We focus on increasing program availability and capacity, aligning pathways, and addressing licensure concerns; improving and growing healthcare career exploration opportunities for middle and high school students; and convening partners to develop, launch, and share solutions that build and retain regional healthcare talent.
