Most likely you an get a job with agencies like VNA or other home health agencies for almost instant work after the usual background check once you have the FL license. My I know a nurse who works for VNA and loves it. Never a dull moment for sure. A lot will depend on the part of the state you will be living in too. FL is very diverse as you move from the panhandle down to Miami. Lots of variations as to culture and opportunities. HTH.

Thanks. My plan is to move around North Port, Port Charlotte, Englewood, somewhere in that area of the Gulf Coast. Are you familiar with that area?

I worked in Port Charlotte in the mid 80's. It's a growthy area but I can't tell you a lot about it's economic status at the moment. I know a lot of people have retired there. I like the area because of the close fishing on the bays and gulf. Englewood is also nice if you could find work there. The beach is not nearly as nice as those farther north in Venice and Sarasota. You may want to investigate Sarasota also. Bradenton is nice also for it's beaches for off duty time also and I know there is a large hospital there and many other medical offices. VNA has an office there to. DM me if you needs more info. Welcome to the Sunshine State. I hope you are familar with the weather patterns down here as for storms and heat and humidity. We have a paradise for some and the opposite for others. Best wishes.

Most home health agencies employ LPN's so you should have no trouble finding work.
Sorry I am not familiar with Port Charlotte as I am on the east coast of Florida, but Good luck anyway
