    Try these guys. They are some sort of large nursing agency. I believe they staff permanent positions and seem to work strictly with dialysis.

    Gambro is the third largest dialyzer in the US..They are a Swedish based company. They are not a nursing agency.



    You can see their openings on their website

    www.gambrohealthcare.com or these other two

    www.fmcna.com

    www.davita.com

    If you are interested in licensing you need to check with the Florida Board of Nursing. I hear it takes awhile to get a license in that state.

    Good Luck

    Pay in Florida is nothing to write home about. I am enclosing a link for the Miami Herald, Herald.com. I always see ads for dialysis.

    That's what I was gonna say too.. FLA is very low paying , the RN license takes forever to get. And IMHO it's a dump.. Sorry all you natives and FLA lovers..

    I just wish they would clean up those darned palm tree leaves beside the road..

    Thanks for the info': how much is nothing to write home about; I am at the top of the scale here at 33.75 Can/hr with 6 weeks paid holidays; how does that compare to florida?
