from what i've heard, florida nurses don't get paid well. i'm currently making over $37/hr with my shift diff here in az, but we will be moving to fl early next year to be closer to family. i'm trying to figure out where would be the best places for us to live, based, in part, on the higher paying areas. we'll definitely be living on the coast, and have debated tampa/bradenton/fort myers vs stuart/west palm/pompano beach areas. any insight on the pay and hospitals in these areas would be truly appreciated! it's hard to find out this information without flying over there to interview- but i'd like to have an idea of the area we should atleast start to look in first!!
