The NC Chamber Foundation and the North Carolina Center on the Workforce for Health have formed a landmark public-private partnership to aggressively tackle the state’s critical health workforce shortages.  

North Carolina will need 17,500 more nurses over the next 10 years to keep up with the state’s aging and growing population. This innovative partnership will create long-term solutions that address nursing and other workforce shortages within North Carolina’s health care sector, ultimately resulting in nine employer-led, regional talent pipelines across the state. 

The partnership will utilize principles of the Talent Pipeline Management framework to engage local partners in employer-led collaboratives and coordinate workforce development solutions that meet the needs of businesses and their workers.
