General Information: Why not make the Grand Canyon State the next place you call home? Arizona is recognized for its ongoing innovation in numerous fields including medicine, biosciences, agriculture, and technology; for its high quality of life; for its beautiful and unique landscape, and, for its majestic Grand Canyon National Park, one of the Seven Natural Wonders in the United States. It is home to three major state Universities and numerous community colleges. Arizona is the 6th largest state in the U.S. by area and is home to about 6.7 million people.
In 2012, the Arizona 3RNet partnership was formed with the Arizona Center for Rural Health, the Arizona Department of Health Services and the Arizona Alliance for Community Health Centers. This partnership enabled the three organizations to enhance our collective outreach to facilities statewide, significantly increasing the number of active facilities -50 in 2012 to 118 in 2015.
Arizona has a variety of job openings with generous benefits in rural communities with beautiful landscapes, friendly people, and culturally diverse populations with 21 federally recognized Native American tribes/nations and more than 1.9 million people or 30% of Hispanic ethnicity. Your free time can be spent enjoying the beautiful weather outdoors, hiking, river rafting, skiing, along with the cultural diversity the state has to offer. If you are open to international adventures, Arizona shares a 389 mile long border with Mexico. In addition, Arizona is one of the Four Corners states, sharing a regional border with New Mexico, Utah, Nevada and California.

Successful Placement Testimony:
"I appreciate Arizona's 3RNet because it attracts the attention of providers who tend to work well in our organization-providers who are dedicated, mission-minded and preferring a rural environment."
Sandy Seby, North Country Healthcare
Working with Arizona’s 3RNet member has provided networking opportunities that I could not have found anywhere else. Through their vast network of community members and partners I have made contacts throughout the state of Arizona and in the very communities where I hope to work. I have not only made business contacts, I have made lifelong friends. I cherish the friendships I have formed with so many talented individuals who are unified in a common cause.
