Looking to advance your career (and grow your salary) in the coming year in the nursing field?
Nursing and other healthcare professions have been greatly affected by the steadily retiring baby boomer generation and the ongoing pandemic. In fact, an estimated 1 million RNs will retire by 2030. Furthermore, nursing schools across the country have been unable to expand their capacity to meet this rising demand for RNs. Now is the time to step up and fill that need!
Here are 5 reasons why becoming a nurse in Miami right now is a good idea:
- According to recent salary data on www.nursingprocess.org, nursing positions in Florida, show the average registered nurse (RN) salary is $64,890 and RNs in Florida enjoy excellent job security. The highest-paying region is Miami, with an average RN salary of $72,300. Other major metro areas like Tampa ($71,300) and Naples ($68,930) are also above the typical statewide nurse earnings. Additionally, employment of registered nurses is projected to grow 7 percent from through 2029, faster than the average for all occupations. Most of these positions will be in hospitals in cities like Miami, Tampa, and Orlando, Florida.
- In order to work as an RN in the state of Florida, you will need a nursing degree such as an ADN or a BSN from a school approved by the Florida Board of Nursing, and you must pass the NCLEX-RN examination to obtain your licensure. We can get you through the NCLEX and on your way to a higher paying career.
- To specifically support single parents meeting extreme low-income criteria (as outlined by Sovereign School of Nursing) we award a one-time grant of up to $5,000 to eligible students enrolled in the ASN program.
- Florida ranks at #4 in the list of states with the highest need for nurses (Drexel.edu) with an estimated 174,710 available positions. This may be due, in part, to the aging population that typically migrates South when they retire. And, that number also includes the baby boomers currently working as Registered Nurses (RNs) or Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) who are leaving job positions open as they retire.
- As a Registered Nurse, you can choose to work in other career settings. An RN degree may allow you to teach nursing, or pursue a master’s degree in nursing or become an administrator. The outlook is only increasing.
Isn’t it time you gave some serious thought on what the next two years of your life will be about? Sovereign School of Nursing can get you on the path to your RN or LPN by helping you pass the Florida Board of Nursing Exam (NCLEX). And that’s really what we do best!
