3RNet Candidate Registration Promotion & Facility Recognition

3RNet has two major activities planned for NRHD: a candidate registration promotion, and a facility recognition.

How We’re Celebrating Candidates:
New candidate registrations in the month of November will get a $5 Starbucks e-gift card as our way of saying “Happy National Rural Health Day!”

New candidate registrations must do two things when registering to receive their gift card: 1. upload a CV and, 2. enter ‘NRHD’ in the “Location Code” field. Gift cards will be emailed to the email address used when registering within 72 hours. Questions about this can be directed to 3RNet.

How We’re Celebrating Facilities:
We’ve selected a handful of facilities from across the country to receive our second annual recognition for “recruitment and retention excellence”. We reached out to facilities and have asked them to share about themselves by answering a few questions and sending a photo. To help say “job well done!” we’ll send them a $50 gift card so they can treat their staff.

You can view the stories throughout the month of November on our 3RNet blog ( and our social media. For more information contact Kristine Morin at
