Greetings! I'm new to nursing and considering a move to the Springfield/Decatur area. I'd just like to find out some area-specific concerns that nurses have in this area. What's the pay like? Working conditions? Is INA a real advocate for nurses in this area? How many RNs are union? What are the opportunities for specializations in cardiac care? And ... last but not least, what is the social climate like? We are a small family but we love camping, fishing, and other outdoor activities. Thanks for your help!
