What you need to know

​​​​​​The focus of recruitment and retention assistance is on rural and urban under-served areas in Nebraska. There are a number of programs which are available to assist communities and candidates to make a job opportunity match.

Communities may request that a job opportunity be listed on a web page for candidates to review. Candidates may then view these opportunities on the web page and contact the individual at the local community/clinic. The Office of Rural Health staff is available to provide information to both the recruiting community and the candidates.

The Office of Rural Health staff will provide assistance with a variety of questions you may have regarding the recruitment and retention process. We will provide technical assistance by phone and community workshops upon request. A recruitment and retention manual is also available.
