2023 Healthcare Workforce Summit

2023 Healthcare Workforce Summit logo

Join the Colorado Workforce Development Council (CWDC) and partners on Oct. 26 for a hybrid summit to address workforce shortages across Colorado’s healthcare industry. Register by Oct. 12 to secure your spot -- in-person attendance is limited to 200 participants and virtual attendance is limited to 500 participants. 

A 2021 analysis from Mercer found that Colorado will be facing a shortage of 54,000 entry and mid-level healthcare workers and more than 10,000 registered nurses in Colorado by 2026. As organizations seek to address these shortages, it is necessary to develop a cohesive statewide plan that builds on Colorado’s strengths and addresses ongoing matters of policy and practice that create persistent barriers to addressing workforce shortages.
