Salary for Florida Nurses

  1. 0 I've heard that the pay for Florida nurses is very low, is this true?
    Do you know what the starting salary of a new grad would be like?
    Also the salary of a nurse practioner (neonatal)?
    Any additional comments...

    I couldn't say. I worked in the pool as an LPN before getting my RN for $21 base, but for pool you have to have hospital experience. I know Palms of Pasadena hospital and kindred both hire new grad lpn's. Unfortunately it is very difficult to get a position in a hospital as an LPN much less a new grad, so of you are offered a job take it. Get at least 6 mo to a year under your belt and you will be much more emplpyable. Trust me, it's tough all around for new grads. If I could offer any advice, I would say keep pushing forward with school and you won't regret it. Good luck!!

    A new grad at orlandohealth is about $21-$22, but keep in mind that within a short period of time you could move up the pay scale quickly (with clinical ladder, etc.).

    Can you all include the differentials for nights, holidays and weekends.

    I can tell you Orlando Health is $8.75 flat rate at night. $13.35 for winter holidays. Summer holidays is $3.20. Weekends $3.20. Between 7pm-1059pm is either 4 bucks or another 3.20.

    That is an extremely high salary for a new grad. Will you be on a specialty floor? That is almost $30/hr for nights!!!

    A majority of my classmates work in different hospitals throughout Palm Beach County and are also around the same pay rate.
