So you're in Florida. I was thinking of moving from Washington which is fully autonomous to Florida. Previously I lived in NM also a FPA state. So, I've never worked in a state which required any kind of oversight or colaborative aggreement. So, it makes me a little nervous to move to a highly restritive state. I'm trying to gain some insight from those that live there that might be able to help me by answering some questions, and sharing some info.
Part of my motivation is the sun, and a swimmable ocean. Lcation, location, location. I would be moving to the St Pete area, or Tampa area. My brohter and mother live there, so I have family there.
Yes, it seems pay here is higher, but not 300% higher and the cost of living between NM and WA is about 300% greater. So, although I'm making well into six figures, it all disapears cost of living.
But I've heard jobs are hard to come by in FL. Is this just a new grad issue? I am not a new grad and my previous practice has been FP, UC, and aesthetics primarily.
I'm applying for license now, prior to applying to any jobs because it seems nobody wants to talk to you without a florida license already.
So, I guess my questions are how do you find working in a state where you have to have a supervising physician?
Is it really that hard to find a job?
Is there any other info or tips that might make this decision easier, or bring some clarity to mind?
