Recent state legislation (ESSB 5582) calls for the launch of a pilot project to build partnerships between rural hospitals and area high schools to develop the nursing assistant and healthcare workforce. 

The goal is to address workforce shortages by supporting students’:

  • Nursing assistant education.
  • Entry into the healthcare workforce.
  • Advancement into nursing or other healthcare career pathways.

Per the legislation, WABON will work in collaboration with:

  • Rural hospitals.
  • Relevant employer and exclusive bargaining unit partnerships.
  • Nursing assistant-certified training programs.
  • Department of Health.
  • Department of Labor and Industries.   

All interested parties are invited to join us in an online meeting to learn more about the pilot project and how to participate.
