Hello:

The area has mainly one hopsital system known as North Broward Hospital District. In that area the hospital is North Broward. Also it is just mins. south of the Palm Beach County line, so hospitals in or around Boca Raton would also serve well. They are owned by Tenet., Boca Raton Community Hospital.

I actually lived in Deerfield for 3 months and worked for the North Broward Hospital District. They have 4 hospitals. I worked at Coral Springs Medical Center which is maybe 15 away. North Broward is very very close. Broward General is in the city...a little further by freeway. NOt sure exactly where Imperial Point is. The District is highly recommended. There is also Northwest Medical Center in Margate, which is right next to Deerfield Beach area and is an HCA. I did PICU/NICU/Peds. Any other questions?

I have lived in Deerfield Beach, Margate, Coral Springs, and now live in Coconut Creek. I work at Holy Cross Hospital in Ft. Lauderdale which is a private, not-for-profit Catholic hospital. Very nice, friendly team-oriented people, more like a hospital and less like a business. Not a trauma center so if you like excitement, then consider North Broward Medical Center, Broward General Medical Center (both part of the District). Boca Raton Comm Hospital is a private not-for-profit hospital as well but their clientele is very demanding. West Boca is owned by Tenet. Imperial Point Medical Center is part of the District as well and it has a great cafeteria (seriously, people go there for lunch).

Good Luck!

It is far more expensive on the East Coast. There is nothing inland as there is from the West Coast.

HI pinay, my question is, what hospital in that area has the bigggest level 3 nicu? I am thinking about relocating, and thats all I do is NICU. Also, what is the average hourly rate for an RN? Just a rough idea would be great, is it at least over 20?

thanks.....

Hi Bets...do you mean that accommodation is far more expensive? Cost of living in general? Do salaries match this compared to West Coast?

thanks

First, the pay in Florida in generally AWFUL compared to the Northeast. As far as Florida itself goes, there is leass construction and people and people inland from the East coast of Florida as compared to inland from the West coast of Florida. I hope this makes sense.

I am a Nursing student and I graduate in Aug. I am want to move back to Fl. and I am very interested in information regarding Holy Cross Hopital.

Do they hire newly grad. students? Do they help relocate? and will they let me work with that new grad status program I was told about by the Fl. state board office. I will be taking my n-clex as soon as I get to Fl. Any 411 would be great. Thanks :rolleyes:

Hello.

I live in the Ft. Lauderdale area and I cannot seem to find a nursing school locally without a two year waiting list, does any one know any schools nearby without a waiting list?

I'm chuckling about the cafeteria at IP! You are right! :rotfl:

I shied away from Holy due to the team nursing. Do you really enjoy it? I heard many nurses left because of it. Thanks!
