The Nevada Hospital Association Health Care Workforce Development grant program (NHA-HCWD) is a partnership of the NHA and Nevadaworks and provides State of Nevada grant funding resources and support to individuals pursing health care careers, as well as their potentional health care employers.

The goal of the NHA-HCWD program is to address the shortage of registered nurses (RN) and allied health care professionals in northern Nevada. The program is designed to aid in the successful transition from academia to a professional career through occupational skills training, on-the-job-training (OJT) and advocacy for permanent job placement. In doing so, the NHA-HCWD program provides multiple services to ensure program participants’ success and help ease workforce shortage issues that are faced by Nevada health care employers. 

The NHA has participated in the Health Care Workforce Development grant program since 2010 and has enrolled over 400 new graduate nurses and allied health professional with over a 90 percent employment retention rate.  Click on the links below for additional program details.
