3RNet Adds CHWs to Professions Database
“Community Health Worker” is the Rural Recruitment and Retention Network’s (3RNet,) newest addition to their database of health professionals. 3RNet is a national leader for community-based health professional recruitment and retention. They provide resources for both health care providers seeking to fill staff positions and for health care professionals to find jobs in rural and under-served communities.
A key strategy that helps employers and health professionals connect is using interactive technologies and communication.
“This is another great acknowledgement and recognition of the important work CHWs do in their communities,” said Lourdes Paez, Workforce Development Coordinator for the Arizona Alliance for Community Health Centers. She added that providers who utilize job descriptions not posted in the 3RNet database should contact the 3RNetto have their professional job descriptions added. “Simply email us to let us know,” she said.
