I'm moving back to Fl after 14 years absence. I would like to move to Melbourne/Palm Bay area but I'm not picky. Are long term care nurses in demand in the melbourne/Palm Bay area. Is there a city where there is more demands for nurses than another? How about being a male Nurse? does any one know if there would be a problem.

No problem here in WI for finding nursing jobs, i'm just tired of the winters and cold. It's heck to get in the car to got to work in scrubs and i'm getting too old for that.

Any insight would be gratfully appriciated.

Can't help you - but good luck. You'd think there'd always be a need for LTC nurses, especially in Florida. Not sure what the salaries are like. From one nurse to another, you've got my respect. Not sure if that's the kind of work that I'd be able to do.

I have seen many male nurses in the hospitals here. Why not ? One that I talked to recently thought Orlando pay was better than most. My dd works at Lakeland Regional Hospital but works nights and weekends to pay off student loans.

My wife is a nurse and often finding nurses to do home heath is hard. All depends on what kind of nursing you are willing to do.

I'm open to any nursing jobs except children and correctional facilities. Currently i'm doing nursing home and home health. I'm not picky, the human body is the same no matter what you do.

Some hospitals work nurses to death (high acuity/high nurse to patient ratio).
