Sunny Florida has long been known as a tourist paradise. With attractions like Walt Disney World, Universal Studios and Sea World, as well as the state's extensive sandy coastline dotted with palm trees, it's no wonder tourism is a multi-billion-dollar industry here. However, all the fun hides a not-so-sunny reality for the state's residents—one of the highest unemployment rates in the nation. The good news is that the state is still a great place to launch a nursing career. Out of all the industries in Florida, health care is one of two that has actually added jobs during the recession, and qualified nurses are still in-demand in the state's hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, doctor's offices and home health care agencies. This demand is partly due to the large population of retirees and senior citizens that live in Florida who place a greater demand on the health care services nurses provide.

The most in-demand nursing jobs in Florida are concentrated in and around the more heavily populated areas, such as Jacksonville, Miami, Tampa and St. Petersburg. Nurse positions expecting the most growth are: adult critical care nurses in hospitals; staff RNs in skilled nursing facilities; and staff RNs working in home health. Some of the largest and best-known employers of registered nurses in Florida include: the Sacred Heart Health System (Northwest Florida), the Memorial Healthcare System (South Florida), and the Jackson Health System (South Florida). Those who want to become nurses in the Sunshine State can get information about state licensure through the Florida Department of Health. The Florida Nurses Association is the professional organization that represents the state's nurses, and it maintains a website where RNs here can search for jobs and keep up to date on issues relevant to Florida's nurses.
