    Colleagues! Be sure to take advantage of the opportunity to let educators, policymakers, and others around the state know about your health workforce needs. Data about health workforce occupations, skills and roles needed at your organization can be submitted now to Washington’s Health Workforce Sentinel Network through April 30! Your information will be combined with other Sentinels’ data across the state and used to identify emerging health workforce demand signals and develop responses to changing workforce needs.

    The Sentinel Network has identified health workforce needs around the state and these findings are being reviewed by the state Health Workforce Council, the leadership of Accountable Communities of Health, community college deans and health program directors, among others to address emerging workforce issues. Examples of general findings to-date include:

    • Registered nurses are among the top three occupations with “exceptionally long vacancies.”
    • There is increased demand for mental health counselors.
    • Social workers with additional chemical dependency treatment skills are needed in some settings.

    Being a Sentinel is easy – once you’ve registered, the brief survey takes about 10-20 minutes for most respondents to complete.

    The information you provide is confidential.  No individual organization’s information will be identifiable in reports of findings.
