The Indiana Association for Health Care Recruitment (IAHCR) is a statewide membership organization of professional health care recruiters. For over 20 years we have provided members with countless opportunities to network, collaborate, share information and participate in industry education, facilitating best practice in Indiana health care recruitment. IAHCR meets on the second Friday every other (even) month, at various locations.
In 2008, IAHCR was officially recognized as the state chapter of the National Association for Health Care Recruitment (NAHCR). Many members of IAHCR also belong to NAHCR and participate in their annual national conference, which Indiana hosted in 2013. Former IAHCR president Michele Snider is the 2015-2016 president-elect of NAHCR. This year in 2016, our IAHCR Secretary, Melissa Wheeler from Community Health Network attended NAHCR in Las Vegas and passed the Certified Health Care Recruiter, (CHCR) certification. A huge CONGRATULATIONS to her. The NAHCR Credentialing Examination, administered by Applied Measurement Professionals, provides professional Health Care Recruiters and Human Resources Professionals the opportunity to earn the credentials. We are proud to have her represent the Indiana chapter with this accomplishment and bring home information to share with all the members on the conference. Melissa we are very proud of you!!!
In 2009 and 2010, IAHCR and the Kentucky Association for Health Care Recruitment (KAHCR) joined forces for a regional conference.
