Mission: To close the workforce skills gap in the health care industry by building a path for diverse workers to access training, support and tech jobs across the Greater Minneapolis Region.
In response to employer feedback and overwhelming data that suggest regional growing employment shortages in the health care industry, the City of Minneapolis created the Minneapolis Health Hire project (MHH). MHH aims to help diversify the Healthcare field by creating clear, aligned, and coordinated entry points into short-term healthcare training pathways that result in industry recognized skills and credentials. Each pathway features training in the Health Care Core Curriculum (HCCC), a curriculum that prepares learners with baseline knowledge and skills that then articulate to four pathways in the health care field with employer partners ready to hire. The four pathways are: Nursing Assistant Plus, Health Care Plus, Instrument Technician , and Patient Access Specialist.
MHH is a fundamental shift in how we address two difficult challenges our state faces: developing the talent Minnesota health care systems need to drive the state's continued economic prosperity; and eliminating the racial and economic disparities that keep too many Minnesotans from having the chance to become that talent.
