Naomi’s Answer

Nurses are usually paid by hour and not by annual salary. Florida is notorious for having poor working conditions for many works and although nursing pay is better than many other professions it is still considered low comparatively because Florida is such a desirable place to live. When I lived in Florida I made between $22 and $27 an hour and worked 36 hours a week. I do not make much more as a nurse midwife and work almost double the time. Nursing can be a very lucrative career that can be achieved with relatively low investment cost, but Florida has one of the lowest paid.

Hi Timothy!

I'm a huge data nerd, and I love the resources that the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics put out, because they answer your *exact* question for almost any industry or employment you can think of!

For Registered Nurses in Florida, they earn a median salary of $69,510 per year; nationwide, they earn a median salary of $75,330 per year. The median wage is the wage at which half the workers in an occupation earned more than that amount and half earned less. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $53,410, and the highest 10 percent earned more than $116,230.

The BLS maintains an online database where you can see not only pay information, but also learn more about what job skills/degrees/certifications would be useful, what the outlook for the industry is expected to be over the next ten years, and even dive into the employment and pay data by state or geographic location. I highly encourage you to take a look at the data yourself; you can find the statistics for Registered Nurses here: https://www.bls.gov/ooh/healthcare/registered-nurses.htm

You can look at websites like Salary.com and Glassdoor.com to get an idea of the median salary in your occupation in your area. These are not always true or accurate, but gives you a rough idea.
