Sentinel Network works for you
Since launching the Sentinel Network, healthcare providers have identified common occupational skills they need—but can’t always get. Sentinels have also provided feedback on changing healthcare roles, helping Washington’s education and training programs retool to reflect these changes. Check the findings dashboard to view what Sentinels have said to-date.

If you’re already a Sentinel and have shared your workforce needs previously, thank you! Your continued participation is critical to addressing these needs, so please respond to the email survey invitation. As you are likely aware, the 2019 Legislature provided ongoing funding for the Sentinel Network, so we know policy makers are paying attention to this important tool and the data we are receiving from you and your colleagues.

Your feedback is confidential
Details you provide, including specific recruitment challenges, are kept confidential so you’re able to share freely and securely.

Help keep Washington’s healthcare industry—and your organization—on the leading edge. Become a Sentinel today!

Washington’s Sentinel Network is a collaboration of the state’s Workforce Board and the University of Washington’s Center for Health Workforce Studies and a program of Washington’s Health Workforce Council. Funding to initiate the Sentinel Network came from the Healthier Washington initiative, with ongoing support from Governor Inslee’s office and the Washington Legislature.
