Nevada granted $2.5 million for rural healthcare

Nevada has been awarded $2.5 million to help develop the healthcare workforce to relieve shortages in northern and rural communities.
The governor’s Office of Workforce Innovation joined with Nevadaworks, the Nevada Hospital Association and several education training providers to apply for the Labor Department funding.
John Thurman, head of Nevadaworks, said over the next four years, the money will help increase the number of middle and high skilled healthcare workers in northern and rural communities by expanding services such as job placement, resume writing, job search assistance and occupational skills training.
