The primary goal of the Innovation Challenge is to promote and support innovative ventures in the health care workforce space in New Hampshire. In addition to fantastic networking at both events, on May 1st, we'll hear live pitches from the five inaugural Innovation Challenge Semi-Finalists and on May 15th, we'll announce the three winners of the competition!

New Hampshire partners have mobilized to launch bold, innovative projects to address the state’s need for a dedicated, robust health care workforce.

Dedicated advocates have launched over 50 initiatives to address the pressing health care workforce needs in their communities and throughout New Hampshire.

HealthForce NH works to raise awareness and create connections across these initiatives.

Below we highlight some exciting projects underway to grow, retain, and sustain a robust and diverse health care workforce.

NH Needs Caregivers

The purpose of this project is to increase the number of licensed LNAs by providing financial assistance in training programs. The Southern NH Area Health Education Center contracted with Lynn Carpenter from Navlyn Resources to implement the program.

Advanced Nursing Education Workforce (ANEW)

The goal of this project is to provide traineeship and tuition reimbursement funds for longitudinal, immersive clinical training experiences with rural and underserved populations for primary care student nurse practitioners.


This program works with employers to create paid health care workforce apprenticeships in NH. There is also a subsection of the program that focuses on connecting high school students with employers to build pre-apprenticeship programs.

Credentialing Support Partnership (CSP)

This project aims to increase the number of licensed LADCs and MLADCs throughout NH by offering candidates one-on-one support, skill building, mentoring and coaching to guide them through the licensure process.
