Florida is a great place to live and work as a nurse. The Sunshine State has everything from beautiful beaches and golf courses to popular theme parks like Walt Disney World to dozens of national parks and historic sites. Its large population of “snowbirds” and its popularity as a place to retire has also created a strong demand for healthcare services and nurses and made the state one of the top destinations for travel nursing assignments. The state has hundreds of nursing homes, long-term care facilities and hospitals that all need nurses. The growing use of home healthcare services in Florida has also increased the demand for skilled and experienced nurses. But finding open nursing jobs and travel nursing assignments in Florida isn’t so easy if you don’t where to look. You could look in the newspapers for classified job ads advertising nursing positions or even visit hospital web sites to search for openings that match your interests, skills and experience but that is likely to take a long time. Fortunately, there is a better way and there are many nursing job boards, sites and nursing employment agencies that will help you quickly find the information you need to find a nursing job in Florida.
