Hello everyoneI am considering a relocation to Florida, the Tampa area and have called about 6 hospitals so far...the two that actually gave me a # on per hour rate said 20 dollars. Is that right? Is the average hourly rate for an RN in Florida in this area 20 dollars? I did a cost of living calculator online and according to it in order to not feel any difference in florida as compared to where i am now, which is NY/NJ, I would have to make 48 thousand a year, unfortunately 20 dollars an hour does not cut it. I really want to go, my family is down there but I'm scared that if I go I might get hit really hard . Can anyone tell me what you might know about hospitals and salary in Tampa, St. Petersburg, and Clearwater. And about nursing in general and what you think of a 20 dollar per hour salary. Thank you, emails would be appreciated, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
