​​​​​Health Navigation Nebraska  
Welcome to the Nebraska Health Navigation Training Resource site.  The site is designed to provide information on health navigation courses and resources. There is a need in Nebraska to build a comprehensive and interconnected healthcare navigation system that works together with community partners and clients in order to provide services and appropriate referrals.

The Women's and Men's Health Program (WMHP) has spent the last 10 years building statewide capacity by offering Community Health Worker training when no one else was offering such training.  Due to the funding that UNMC and Creighton received over the course of the next 4 years to offer Community Health Worker Training, the WMHP has decided to go in a different direction and will offer more specific training moving forward.  Our focus will continue to evolve and change to best serve the community health worker workforce.

The contact at both UNMC and Creighton programs are: 

Errik Ejike, MPH, CPHHE Assistant Director

We will be posting updates on our website moving forward as new training opportunities become available. Thank you for your interest and support of community health workers.​
