    I'm sorry to say you will be disappointed by the pay here in Tampa. I moved here from Texas and took a $22K/year pay cut to work at one of the largest hospital in Florida. ouch. All of my experience is NICU LIII. I fear what non-acute/specialized RNs make.

    $32/hr is probably reachable, but I'm not there yet.

    Good luck!

    24-26/hr ave in Phoenix! Cost of living is pretty good here too! Some of the seasoned nurses (NOC shift weekend program of course) are easily pulling in 6 figures! FLA is one of the lowest paying states! I think its bc people actually WANT to live there lol. My hospital is nice as you have the option to make a ton more on differentials/precepting/charge/etc. As a new grad 6 years ago I was easily making close to 60k a year and now make substantially more than that. My raises some years have been up to 8%! I know Ohio pay is low, starting out near what FLA pays.
