Hi all! I am hoping to move to the Tampa area next fall, and was wondering if I could get an idea of job availability and salary. At that time, I will have had about 2.5 years MICU/SICU experience and about 9 months experience as a critical care float to the MICU/SICU, ED, PACU, and CCU.

I don't know which area I will want to get into at that point, so if anyone knows differences in wages for each I might expect based on experience, I would really appreciate the info! Also, which hospital systems are recommended down there? I will be coming from the Cleveland Clinic, also... which should hopefully increase employers interest in me.

Thanks!

Mid 20's is usually the base and then the shift differentials take it up from there. Good luck, I left sorry Florida 3 years ago and have gone up by over half of my hourly salary and have lower cost of living.
