The Florida Center for Nursing recently conducted a workforce survey and it showed that vacancies for nurses have accelerated in 2011 (this is after a four-year dip). The center has further predicted that the State of Florida will continue to run short of RNs by about 11,000 openings in the year 2015; and in 2025, this number can go up to as much as 50,000.

The state is clearly lacking in qualified nurses as demands in nursing homes, hospitals and home health agencies continue to climb. This brought about the most competitive offers to RNs just as long as they choose to be employed with a certain healthcare facility. And with an annual salary ranging from $57,726 (Pensacola RN rate) to $66,278 (Fort Lauderdale), there isn’t a better time to become a registered nurse in Florida than now.
