I recently visited Citrus Springs, FL and I love it. I think it is a developing city because they are building alot of houses and buildings there as we speak and here in NY noone knows about it when I ask. I am thinking about moving there in about 2 years, does anyone know how the salary is or anything about the job opportunities for RNs?
Hi, I am also from NY (originally). I have been looking into Citrus County, Florida and called one of their hospitals. They quoted me $21.50 per hour for 10 years of experience (mostly in critical care), BSN, ACLS, & PALS. I was making that 8 years ago.
If you are thinking of moving there, I would try to buy some land or real estate NOW. Like the rest of Florida, real estate prices are climbing like crazy. Taxes on your house will be approximately 2% - 2.5% of the purchase price of your house. Not cheap. Since you are in NY, you are probably used to the high taxes and climbing real estate prices (depending on where you live in NY, of course).
From what I have heard, the pay in all of Florida is very low compared to the cost of living.
Good luck in your relocation.
