LPN in Florida

  1. I am four months away from graduation from LPN school. I want to relocate to Florida from New York maybe Fort Walton Beach area. Does anyone have an idea of the pay rate for a LPN in that area. Thanks....

    I don't know where Fort Walton Beach is, but when I was in Venis/Nokomis (Sarasota area) last Easter, I seen adds in the paper starting out LPN's @ $26-27 per hour. You may get more replies in the Florida forum.

    Please don't expect to make that kind of money as a new grad LPN in Florida.

    Good luck!

    I just moved from Ohio to Florida and took a $10 a hour pay cut to work here. I was just PRN in a nursing home in Ohio making $22 a hour. I am now in a new nurse training program at a hospital and make $12 a hour. I was told I will make more after 12 weeks but I don't see it being more then $15 a hour if I am lucky.
