Florida nursing job growth looks strong
Florida has always been known as one of the top destinations for retirees. With its warm weather and good infrastructure already in place to treat the elderly, Florida has become the retirement location of choice. This and the fact that the overall United States population is getting older are the two main reasons the future looks bright for registered nurses in Florida.

Travel nursing jobs in Florida
Florida is a state where the population can grow by up to 35% in the winter months. Because of this huge increase in population during the winter months travel nursing jobs in Florida have been increasing. The majority of travel nursing assignments run for thirteen weeks, often with the option of extending the term even longer. Acquiring a travel nursing license to practice in the state where the nurse is assigned is required. Licenses cost from $25 to $250 depending on the state. Temporary licenses are available in many states, which are good for anywhere between a month to six months.
In particular, Florida hospital jobs are available as seasonal work – optimal for escaping winter climates. Medical jobs, at any nursing level, are growing faster than nurses are trained, so the demand is expected to continue to grow, especially in the high-population centers of the state of Florida.
