    Good question. My guess is that they were asking for donations to help out all of the out-of-work nurses here in Florida.

    The message was on the application by endorsement site. Before the application scrolled up, the message came up. Looking for volunteer workers and money to help with the shortage.

    Ruas61 I love the pic. Fav. Character from twd. Funny I went to school to become a hospice nurse. Besides behing one of the most humbling experiences in the world, I don't believe that anyone should die alone. I just happened into pediatrics by accident. I fig. When I visit next month I will do some walk ins. And try to get a feel of the pay for the area. Ty everyone for the posts.

    Maybe I should add something useful:

    I work in the treasure coast area and we DO have lpn's on our acute care floor (PCU) so hospital jobs are out there. How frequently this occurs idk. I wish I could help you out with pay but I have no idea
    GOOD LUCK!

    This news is somewhat disheartening. I am an LPN with 6 yrs experience in pediatric critical care. I live in ohio and work independently making about $70,000 a year. I knew I would have to take a pay cut but $12.50 an hour. I can't live on that. I am planning on making a trip to Tampa next month to check out the dif. Facilities and job opportunities.
    70,000????? Don't move here. Just my opinion.

    Agree.
    I won't make 70k this year as an RN.
