  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.
