"We are trying to build a strong pipeline, and let the community know that the OSDH is here, and we are hiring for nurses," said Jess Romero from the OSDH. 

The virtual career fair starts at 9 Wednesday morning and will go till 4 in the afternoon. 

The State Health Department said standard Monday through Friday positions are available, including regular shifts from 8 to 5.
