UMEC has accepted the designation as a Nursing Workforce Information Center. The UMEC gathers data on the supply, the demand and on the education of nurses in the state of Utah.


Rural Workforce Development

The needs of rural Utah are addressed through workforce studies; job board & job fairs; and through a rural residency training program. To encourage residents to set up practice in rural areas, the UMEC has created rural residency training opportunities in a number of communities off the Wasatch Front.
