If you want to avoid the Skyway, you can take I-4 in Tampa east to I-75 and head south to Sarasota.

Since employment is an important factor for you, I would suggest contacting the local hospitals and other potential nursing related employers (such as home health care) of both areas to see what's available. I have a good friend who's wife is a RN (who used to work at Sarasota Memorial Hospital) and they recently left Sarasota and moved to the Indian Rocks beach area of St. Pete as she found better hours and money working for a hospital near there. If you want more info on SMH, please send me a direct message.

Generally, the further south of Tampa you go, the warmer the winters. In our area, the "colder" pockets (maybe 3 - 5 degree difference) are east of I-75, with it usually staying slightly warmer closer to the beaches. Last January was unusually cold for our area of FL, most winters we think it's freezing when the temps drop into the lower 50s at night.

We have over 30 miles of beaches in the Sarasota area, so if you do move here, I think you'll have a great time checking them all out.

Thanks everyone. I just applied for my Florida Nurses License. I've been looking online for 3 bedroom condominium rentals. Can someone tell me which area of Sarasota is best? I don't want to pay more than 1100/mo to rent. I would love to be within walking distance to downtown Sarasota. (where the sailor is kissing the nurse..that is downtown, right)..lol

NYphinfan13,
Good luck on your move. Are you leaving family behind in NY? That is what scares me the most, but I'm ready to do it! Does anyone out there know which hospital offers a higher salary in the Sarasota area?

Sunshine Rules,
I would love more info on SMH. I have a very diverse employment background and 30 years of experience. Presently my title is "Clinical Documentation Specialist".I work in administration would like to continue in that direction. I would also be interested in Case Management. I've researched RN salaries in Florida and it ranges from 50,000 to 80,000. I'd like to know the salary for an experienced RN. If you can provide some info I'd appreciate it. Thank you.

Cath004,

I have a good friend who is a Charge Nurse up at SMH and my uncle works there as well. My hubby works there nearly everyday as well but not in the medical field.

I think your salary would depend on what openings they have available, experience and many other factors so I believe it would be hard for anyone to quote a specific pay rate.

Sarasota Memorial Hospital has an employment website and I think you can see job info online as well: SMH.COM - Careers & Employment Opportunities

My family yes, but my wifes family moved down here over the years. Remember, it's only a 3 hour flight away. Have your family visit in December or January and they will all want to relocate.
