NC Health Workforce Sentinel Network

Oct 21, 2021 7:30:00 AM / by Practice Support Team

Help us respond to your health workforce needs!
The NC Center for Health Workforce is working with NC AHEC, the UNC Sheps Center and other stakeholders to take action to address North Carolina’s health workforce needs. An initial step in this process is to gather your concerns about recruitment, retention and skill needs of your workforce. We’ll use this information to work with policymakers and educators to develop responses and solutions.

About the Sentinel Network:
The Sentinel Network is a tool to understand health employers’ real-time workforce needs – such as challenges related to recruitment, retention, and needed skills – and make that information available to educators and policymakers so they can take action right away. We plan to gather this information twice a year so it will be timely and actionable. For more information on how this information has been presented in other states, go to: 

The information you provide to the Sentinel Network will be kept confidential. Your organization’s data will be reported in aggregate form with data from similar organizations. Care will be taken to ensure that no individual organization’s responses can be identified in reports.
Help us address your – and the North Carolina healthcare industry’s – health workforce needs. Please participate today!

The Sentinel Network is an initiative conducted collaboratively by North Carolina Area Health Education Centers (NC AHEC) and the University of North Carolina’s Program for Health Workforce Research and Policy within the Cecil G. Sheps Center for Health Services Research. Funding to initiate the North Carolina Sentinel Network is provided by NC AHEC.
