    What is a Nurse Tech 2?

    An employment opportunity for nursing students interested in pursuing a nursing career, Nurse Tech 2 roles are valued at Wellmont Health System. They give nursing students who are within a year of graduation the opportunity to acquire valuable skills and knowledge working with experienced nursing staff in a state-of-the-art health care environment.
