Is $26/hour worth it as a Registered Nurse here in Florida?

July 27th, 2022

I work in Home Health and make $25/hr as a LPN. I think for a RN that is too low.

June 13th, 2022

No, As a new grad last year.. I started off making $30 & I live in Florida.

No. That is ridiculous pay for the amount of training and responsibility this job requires. With housing/inflation it’s not even a sustainable income.

Depends on the length of experience. A new grad should be making this. For someone with experience, this rate is too low.

My last staff position I was being paid $32 plus a $5 night differential in Hollywood FL. Been an RN for 5+ years.

Usually the more south you go the lower the salary becomes. CA n NY PAY approx 3 x the salary you quoted.
Living expenses are high in NY less in North CA. Cost of living is high. Stay close to the hospital to save on gas.
Good luck.

You are welcome.

No. Cost of living and patient ratio
