LPN information for Tampa/St Petersburg

  1. 0
    So the husband and I are looking to move to this area late next year when he gets out of the military to be closer to his kids. I'll have 3 years of experience at that point, split between urgent care and long term care. What are the median salaries for those two nursing areas? Also, we will be moving from Georgia so has anyone gone through the process of getting their license in Florida from Georgia? I looked up the LPN Board in Florida but honestly it wasn't very clear if I would be able to get reciprocity or not. Thanks in advance for the information.

    If a job can be found, prob around $15 an hour? Very low paying. New grad RN's start out at about $21, so the LPN pay may be even less.

    I am currently going thru the process I relocated from Virginia to Florida. Best thing to do is call the Florida Board of Nursing their website changed its www.floridasnursing.gov to get endorsement you have to do a background check and fingerprinting of 89.95, a 2 hour med errors course is needed, app fee is 125.00 good thing about their website they tell you where to go to get everything done. Hope this helps good luck in your future endeavors.
