The health care industry in New Hampshire requires a workforce with a wide range of skills and an industry sector that responds to its fast-paced needs. Today, the industry has approximately 3,500 active job postings, a critical shortage by many measurements. Projections indicate it will grow by 11% over the next two years. In order to continue New Hampshire’s tradition of quality care and innovation, it is critical to creating new approaches to recruiting and training health care professionals.
