    I've heard Tampa General is a great place to work.They have a good trauma level 1,burn floor,etc.All the major stuff there.i live in a little town.All of our major cases are sent over there to TG.Don't know much about the pay rate for a new grad.some friends that are nurses in the area told me it is somewhere in the 18 and change range until you have a couple years experience.

    Check out Lakeland...it is right between Orlando and Tampa, but is much smaller and less congested....you can be to a beach in less than 1hr and to Disney in 30 min...I love it!!!
