Florida Experiencing A Shortage Of Nurses

  1. 0 SARASOTA - According to the Florida Center for Nursing, Florida is expected to have 15,000 vacancies for registered nurses in 2012. Now nursing program instructors say something needs to be done to help fill some of those job openings.

    I went through orientation with an ICU RN who had just finished a two-year travel contract in FL.

    Boy was she happy to get out of there.

    Florida Nursing Shortage, actually qualified nurses are in a shortage internationally.
    What we can do is try to learn more, and be a qualified professional nursing.

    That is not true. Many new grads are looking for work and no hospital hire anybody anymore. That is the fact. You have a better luck obtaining job the bottom of the barrel the leftover no experience nurses want to take.

    Please review the SUBSTANTIAL. number of previous threads on dismal ratios, crappy conditions, low pay and poor treatment of nurses in FL.As a native Floridian, who travel nursed and now lives in MD, out of 7 states and 18 facilities, FL was the worst.

    Love your big bang avatar. I have heard those same things about nursing in general. I will try to seek out more specific threads. I just got accepted into nursing school and didn't plan to move out of Florida.

    The tag line to the avatar - "Still a better romance than Twilight".

    I never intended on leaving FL, and most of my family is still there. But after serious injury to my physical health, and the fact, that I could no longer be proud or like the care I provided - too many pts, too few nurses, not enough supplies, never any time or chance to eat or void during shift, nasty passive aggressive MDs, etc., I had no choice.

    My worst day here is better than my best day as a nurse in most FL hospitals.

    I wish you good luck

    Florida is one of the worst states for nurses. The turnover rate for the only jobs that will barely-so take new grads be it RN/LPN that are med surg, tele, LTC and LTAC is insane. It is so hard to find a job here leaving you looking for months for one either pays well but is super stressful or pays too little. I can't wait to get my RN and get out of this state. As soon I apply to take my NCLEX I will apply for an equal endorsement license somewhere else.

    I refuse to move to Florida because of that problem. I have run across too many travelers that say the same negative things. Every one of them can not be lying. There is one lady that catches a plane every other week just to work in California who lives in Florida. She is willing to catch a plane and travel to the other side of the U.S. just to avoid working in Florida. That spoke volumes.
