Health Facility Evaluator Nurse: First Classification selected by the Bargaining Unit 17 Recruitment and Retention Committee


Bargaining Unit 17 will meet with CalHR in mid-September regarding the recruitment and retention issues in the Health Facility Evaluator (HFEN) classification. 

Our contract article 5.17.17 affords BU 17 the opportunity to discuss recruitment and retention of six classifications a year. Other classifications slated to be discussed are: Nurse Evaluator II, Nurse Consultant, Health Services Specialist, Registered Nurse (in the California Department of Education), and Nurse Practitioners. 

Survey to Launch for HFEN Classification

A survey is scheduled to go out to all HFENs this week in order to gather additional information regarding workload, working conditions and retention. Look for the survey and be sure to respond before September 10th. 

Moving Forward

All updates regarding the progress of the BU 17 Recruitment and Retention Committee will be posted on the website. 

In the meantime, here are three things you can do to help promote your classification through this process or in anticipation of inclusion in next year’s review:

  • Increase membership in your classification
  • Increase COPE contribution
  • Wear purple on Wednesday to show solidarity
