St. Joseph Hospital needs new nurses, so a job fair this week will focus on filling those positions.

Nurses are needed in a variety of departments, including Cardiac Progressive Care, Home Health Care, Neurology, and Progressive Care. The hospital is actively seeking registered nurses to fill full-time, part-time, and per-diem shifts.

The job fair is being held Thursday from noon to 7 p.m. in the lobby of the hospital's main entrance, off Broadway in Bangor. Nurses are encouraged to stop by with a resume, complete an application, have an on-the-spot interview with a hiring manager, and take a tour of the hospital. A talent acquisition representative will be on hand to answer questions about compensation, benefits, work schedules, and more.Traci O'Neill, Recruiter for St. Joseph Healthcare, said in a media release that the hospital delivers the "highest-quality medical care to the local community" and believes in offering nurses the opportunity to grow.

Anyone unable to attend the job fair, can apply online, and any questions can be directed to Traci O'Neill at (207) 907-1710.
