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
- Mar 21, '12 by TheLiberationFlorida 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.

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.

I'm 2 months shy of graduation, and this thread confirms I made the right decision ...
yes, I am now in NY.
