Florida hospitals and New Grad salaries.....

  1. Hello there,
    I am from Massachusetts and I'm applying to the Florida Hospital system, Osceola Regional and one other hospital in the St. Cloud, Kissimmee and Orlando area. Does anyone know what New grads make on a med surg floor? Also, how safe is the staffing, etc.? Up here in mass we have a lot of unions and the pay is pretty good. I know that due to lower cost of livind and no state income tax that the pay is less.
    Also, what is the evening and night differentials?
    Any help would be very appreciated!
    Thank you,

    If you use the "search" section of this BB and enter "Florida", you will find loads of information, most of which is current. There is generally a Florida salary thread for every week of the year.

    Please be aware, that Florida leads the informal poll, "Nursing salary hall of shame" for lousy pay. And no, the lack of income tax doesn't make up the difference.
