Nursing Careers

Our nurses occupy one of the most pivotal roles in our healthcare system. They’re expert and compassionate contributors to the individual health of our patients, the collective health of our communities and the overall health of our institution. That’s why making SIH the best place to come to work is integral to making it the best place to come for care.

No one knows this better than our own nurses. At Southern Illinois Healthcare, you’ll find a culture of collaboration and professional respect unlike anywhere else. And we believe our nurses set the standard for care in our facilities across Southern Illinois.

SIH is a flagship institution that advances this quality care standard through our facilities and services. Our reach includes four hospitals, one being a Level II Trauma Center; a comprehensive Cancer Institute; and behavioral health care in the Mulberry Center, the only not-for-profit inpatient behavioral health center in Illinois south of Springfield. SIH is consistently recognized for providing quality care outcomes in cardiac, stroke, bariatric, and cancer care while holding affiliations with the Prairie Heart Institute, Siteman Cancer Network and the BJC Collective. Here, we provide large-city care to a small-town community.

SIH offers our nurses:

  • Competitive benefits package, including maternity and paternity leave
  • Tuition reimbursement
  • Loan forgiveness
  • Flex scheduling
  • Leadership development opportunities

SIH is dedicated to the ongoing education and professional development of our nursing staff. We offer training programs, mentorship opportunities, and continuous learning initiatives to ensure that our nurses stay ahead. Our supportive community encourages growth and fosters a sense of belonging among our nursing team.

Nursing staff provide crucial support for patients across all areas of care. They are the backbone of healthcare and the face of SIH. Come develop your talent and career at Southern Illinois Healthcare.
