Rescheduled Career Fair Showcases Patient Care Technician, Nursing Opportunities At Wellmont

A career fair for experienced registered nurses and compassionate patient care technicians, which was postponed last week due to winter weather, has been rescheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 25, at Holston Valley Medical Center.

The fair will provide an opportunity for these caregivers to seek one of Wellmont Health System's diverse job openings. It will be held from 7:30-11 a.m. and 4:30-7 p.m. in the Heritage Room.

During the event, candidates can meet with Wellmont's nurse recruiters, nurse managers and clinical leaders. Human resources representatives will be on-site to interview and potentially hire qualified attendees.

"Wellmont is proud to deliver superior healing care to patients in Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia," said Hamlin Wilson, senior vice president of human resources. "And the best care starts with outstanding caregivers, who we look forward to meeting during this event."

The health system is hiring for a variety of roles in each of its hospitals. Registered nurse applicants should have at least two years of experience. Patient care technicians are not required to have job experience, though nursing assistant training or certification is preferred.
