    depending on the company and where in Flordia, expect the 20's: ranging mid-high 20's.

    I got 34.50 in naples for cardiac surgery recovery but I know that is high for florida.

    Mid to high 20's is right for Florida. Florida has always been a low paying state. Some companies, like Fastaff, offer $40 an hour for Florida. What they don't tell you is that your contract is for 48-60 hours a week, no medical/dental, and no housing. One company that I did hear of high rates was Axis Healthcare. They pay using a tax-blended rate.

    Hi! i made $28/hr in palm beach gardens, but that was on night shift.

    i was a house supervisor (staff) and only got 27/hr...wages are notoriously low...i knew several nurses with 10+ years experience who were making 21/hr.

    because so many nurses from the north want to come to florida, i think that florida takes advantage of it, and pay low wages..

    so you might have the warmth and sun, but less in your pocket.

    I am on a cardiac stepdown unit in SW Florida making about $34/hr, but this is nights (with a two dollar differential). Furnished housing, utilities, and W/D in unit. Very nice, but I'm working hard for it! I also interviewed for another stepdown for $29, in SW FL and one in central FL for $31--day shift. These jobs all included furnished housing and utilities, travel stipend plus hourly wage. Those were day positions. I think the range is usually mid twenties. Florida is not the best paying, typically.

    I am currently with Nova Pro, and have also traveled with PPR. Both good companies from my dealings with them.
