- Feb 19 by KristinWWBlue, get ready for sticker shock - pay in Florida will be drastically less than NY, for the same job. I relocated to FL from PA, and moved back up north again. Job market was bad when I left, but it would depend where you are looking in FL. Do you have any ideas yet? Culture is very different, but there are lots of NYers in South Florida, on the ocean side. It's nickname is "NY South"
- Feb 19 by pedsRN28I'm a new grad as well. Starting pay is around $23
- Feb 20 by CP2013Also consider if you have an ADN or BSN. Many new grads in Florida have their BSN and often have experience working locally. Just remember how competitive the areas can get. Good luck!
- Feb 20 by bluebeetle7Thanks for your advice all!
- Feb 20 by the smackI'm in Miami and it's HORRIBLE here! I have been looking for work since last June. And I'm not picky either. I'll spin signs on a corner for anyone who will hire me as an RN. It's bad...
- Mar 1 by NursesNeedFriendsTooNew grads in orlando make around $21 & there are TONS of nursing schools. They are pushing them out nurses SO fast & it's a pain! some hospitals are already "familiar" with the area nursing schools so they give those GNs jobs.
Also, I have friends that were techs and still have not found GN jobs. It depends on your luck, I guess!
