Will Akron General be having a booth with any nursing positions? If not, any other medical agencies?

Hi Karen, I don't know the answer to this, but I emailed Barb (who wrote this blog) and asked that she respond. Hope to get you an answer soon!

Hi Karen, I will have to check with my contacts at Record Publishing and the Job Club to find out if AGMC has confirmed their booth. The deadline for employer registration is in the next couple of weeks. Let me see what I can find out and get back to you here. Thanks. Barb

Hi Karen, I have a quick update for you on healthcare-related organizations that will have booths. Akron General will have a booth there as well as Hattie Larlham and AlterCare. There are still 15 open booths remaining. If any are purchased by other medical / healthcare organizations, I'll let you know.
