My company transfer was finalized and my wife and I will be moving down sometime between the beginning of March and end of April depending on when our house sells.

My wife is a Registered Nurse (OB/GYN and Labor & Delivery) and will be looking for employment down there. We have already done her FL nursing license (which was a huge pain from out of state and I recommend anyone else do far before moving).

I know there are a number of hospitals in Tampa, are there any healthcare workers on here that would recommend one over another to apply to? Are they all pretty similar to work at?

Tampa General, Memorial Hospital, St Josephs, etc.

From experience, Tampa General is good (pay for nurses is so/so) good benefits and perks as it is such a huge hospital. The culture sucks though, in my opinion. Micromanagement abounds, but if you can go in do your job and leave then I'd say go for it. Also, its a who you know type of place. I was told they dont hire ADN's externally but after getting to know someone who knows someone...tada hired!

HCA has a ton of hospitals and Baycare. It seems that long term care makes the top salaries here, I could be wrong but comparing the salaries of a few people they are on the higher end of the payscale.
