Orlando Florida.. new grads/new RN's question??

  1. 0 Hi,
    I graduate in May and I am moving to Orlando. Anyone care to share what the Orlando hospitals are paying new grads base and differentials. I am in MA and I know it is significantly less than up here but the cost of living really doesn't look like significantly less down there *lol*. It is making me a little nervous. This is a definite move for me. I would like to have some idea of what to expect. Thank you for any help you can give me.

    I'm currently living in Miami, I had interviewed with Florida Hospital in orlando over spring break and they were offering me like high 17. That's with a BSN degree. AD nurses make like .25 less or something. Nights and weekends is and additional 2 or 3 to 5 I believe. Yeah the cost of living is not that cheap either, not as high as Miami but more then where I was living before, in DE.

    I don't know what part of Orlando you will be moving to but I know Central Florida Regional Hospital in Sanford pays a little higher....I started at around 18+ with only one year experience and they have pretty good shift/weekend differentials...I think about 20% which put me around $22. I don't work there anymore b/c of moving but my commute from East Orlando(near Winter Park) was about 35 minutes on average. Good luck!

    The main hospital with the Level one trauma center is Orlando Regional Healthcare system. I would go there.
