Recruiting Quality Health Care Paraprofessionals
Paraprofessional Healthcare Institute

This guide provides an overview of the recruitment strategies used by the Cooperative Healthcare Network (CHN). Recognizing that there is no 'one-size-fits-all' model, the guide describes effective practices for recruiting candidates for an employer-based training program. These include targeted recruitment, building partnerships with community-based organizations, and establishing a rigorous application and interview process that identifies candidates who have the qualities necessary to work independently, solve problems, and provide compassionate care.
