The healthcare industry in Wisconsin offers employment opportunities across the educational spectrum—high school degrees or equivalent, associate degrees, post-secondary degrees and advanced degrees. Graduates need a range of skills, both basic as well as the ability to apply specialized health care skills and knowledge in the healthcare workplace. Will these graduates be ready to work? Will they have the skills necessary to succeed in the workplace of the 21st century? Lack of planning with the appropriate partners can leave our graduates inadequately prepared and subject to skills gap challenges.

With the critical shortage of healthcare workers today, we need more people entering healthcare careers. CHCSeW is seeking to partner with educators interested and willing to design and/or expand new and proven innovative learning strategies designed to reduce the skills gaps and build the qualified workforce needed in healthcare.

Demand for post-secondary education in healthcare professional and technical occupations is third highest after science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and education. Since 2010, the percentage of jobs in health that require some amount of post-secondary education and training has edged upward and a bachelor’s degree will be required for 24% of all healthcare jobs.

The end here must be the beginning… the key to creating value for students and workers pursuing healthcare careers and upward mobility is the recognition that employers are the end-customer. Acceptance of this driving element should encourage education and workforce providers to be proactive in developing highly effective employer partnerships. In partnership, educators and employers can collaborate to identify initiatives that will provide needed support to working and non- working healthcare students.

Recruiting new talent begins with creating and raising awareness of the vast employment and career opportunities that exist in the healthcare industry. Partners can promote strategies that are designed to ensure that all students have access to highly effective and innovative teaching models that are integrated with career enhancing experiences. These strategies begin with a focus on basic foundational skills, such as customer service, in conjunction with the rapidly evolving adult skills such as the growing emphasis on career-preparation, career-readiness standards, career pathways, and technical requirements for healthcare careers.
