Hello
I am thinking of moving to Central Florida have been there, love it, just sold my home. I am a male nurse- RN, experienced in Hospice nursing and would like to stay in Hospice.

Questions:
1. What are the nursing jobs like in general in Central Fla?
In demand? No demand? Luke warm? Don't bother looking?

2. Any one know how Hospice nursing jobs are in Central Fla?

3. Any central parts of the state more employable than others for nursing jobs?

4. Places to AVOID working at?

5. I am leaning toward the North central area to live in, would rent at first then eventually buy a place. How are the Crime rates?
Places to AVOID living in?

6. I would like to live out in more of a country/quiet setting, what would 125k buy , housing wise?

Any input appreciated.

Thanks

VERY high demand. Stick with The Villages.
Any reason why you'd prefer to stick with Hospice? Generally, Hospice pays RN's considerably less hourly than other fields.
Anyway, Central FL towns as a whole mostly have a "good" area and a "bad" area. They are normally well-marked, or easily differentiable.
Ocala is a good city to gravitate to. It is just outside The Villages, and right off of I-75.
Lady Lake, Wildwood, Dunnellon, those are good areas too.

If you need help with locating a rental, let me know. I've lived in Central Florida for 20 years. I am familiar with most of the areas that you mentioned.

Yea Florida is supposedly one of the states with a constant high demand of nurse but yes I don't think you would have any problem at all looking Seminole County or Lake County which tend to be more rural but not too far from the city of Orlando.

The Villages has perhaps the largest concentration of seniors in the entire nation. In that respect, you probably can't go wrong living within commute distance. Surrounding areas have a fair amount of retirees as well.

Thanks for the info, being new to the area, what do u mean by the "villages", like small towns away from cities?
Gainesville would be a town I would like to live NEAR but not in.

Any idea what the going pay rate is for nurses there? Like i said my background is hospice.

If Fla No fault car insurance?

"The Villages" in an actual town. Many years ago it was a retirement community called"The Villages of Lady Lake". But I think the town of Lady Lake either split out into 2: The Villages and Lady Lake, or possibly the town of Lady Lake was renamed to The Villages. It has a lot of retirees since much of it is 55+ housing.

It started out as a retirement subdivision/community and it grew a lot...enough to get its own zip codes.

I think you should check out the Atlantic coastal towns that are between Jacksonville and Flagler county. There are some pretty nice areas around there.

The Villages is an actual town/city. It's hard to describe. It's a huge area that caters to seniors, and is filled with shops, restaurants, bars, hospitals, etc. It also spreads out into multiple towns, including Lady Lake, Fruitland Park, Wildwood...
