The NDHA Workforce Task Force groups that met over this last summer identified the need to increase communication and opportunities to place health profession students in hospital settings.
We would like to encourage hospitals to post opportunities for students to complete their preceptorship, internship or residency. Hosting clinical students is a great recruitment tool for hospitals and also provides a much needed service to the health care community.
We would like to encourage all healthcare educational programs to post clinical placement requests. Expanding the availability of clinical placements across all hospitals across the state including rural locations can help alleviate congestion at urban hospitals and also expand awareness of rural opportunities.
