Community Engagement: July 2022

Combat Rural Workforce Shortages

Essentia Health is proud to partner with Rainy River Community College (RRCC) in International Falls in working to address workforce shortages within the region. Over the last three years, 30 licensed practical nurses and 25 registered nurses graduated from RRCC. More than 40 of those graduates stayed in the region and are providing care to residents of Koochiching County.group standing with giant check
