Citrus Springs Nsg jobs?

  1. I recently visited Citrus Springs, FL and I love it. I think it is a developing city because they are building alot of houses and buildings there as we speak and here in NY noone knows about it when I ask. I am thinking about moving there in about 2 years, does anyone know how the salary is or anything about the job opportunities for RNs?

    Hi, I am also from NY (originally). I have been looking into Citrus County, Florida and called one of their hospitals. They quoted me $21.50 per hour for 10 years of experience (mostly in critical care), BSN, ACLS, & PALS. I was making that 8 years ago.

    If you are thinking of moving there, I would try to buy some land or real estate NOW. Like the rest of Florida, real estate prices are climbing like crazy. Taxes on your house will be approximately 2% - 2.5% of the purchase price of your house. Not cheap. Since you are in NY, you are probably used to the high taxes and climbing real estate prices (depending on where you live in NY, of course).

    From what I have heard, the pay in all of Florida is very low compared to the cost of living.

    Good luck in your relocation.

    Thanks Livefree, $21.50 is a bit low compared to what I am getting paid now but I understand why. I was thinking about buying real estate too. My husband bought land down there couple years ago for only $4000 dollars and sold it this year for $34,000 so it's true. Thanks again, also now I know that when I move down there I will have to get two jobs.

    Citrus is nice, and I agree with the previous poster. Find the area you want and find some land now before the prices get even worse. Down here where I'm at in Lee County (SW florida), you could buy a lot for $2000 in 1999 but now the same lots are $90,000, - $300,000. Even just last year, our lot was valued at $38,000 when we built our house and now it's over $90,000. As for salaries, it is less than the northern states, however we don't pay state taxes and the cost of living itself is less than in NY. Plus I think the fact that you don't have to shovel snow, kinda helps with the salary decrease...lol. I'm from the Detroit area and have lived in FL since the late 80's. I did move away for a few years, but wasn't happy so we came back to FL.

    Go to the websites that offers salary comparison by city and you can enter what you make now for wages and it will show you what you need to make down here without lowering you standard of living.

    Thanks CapeCoraNurse2be, I have only been working as an RN for the past two days so I don't have enough money to buy real estate yet but I will buy some in Citrus. I really love it there. I'm happy you don't pay state taxes there that to me is unbelievable. Yes it will pay off because I would rather be hot than shovelling snow all the time. I'm from a tropical island anyway so I don't like being cold. Thanks again for the info.
