Online Nursing Programs in Florida

Florida, with its large population of retirees with age-related complaints and constant stream of sun-seeking tourists with their accompanying sunburns, insect bites, and jet-skiing injuries, is a place that needs a lot of nurses. However, Florida, like many states, suffers from a nurse shortage.

The shortage is so severe that a statute has created the Florida Center for Nursing, whose mission is to recommend solutions to address Florida's nursing shortage. If you are interested in a career in nursing, one way to help address the shortage is to choose a Florida online nursing school. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the 2009 mean salary for nurses in Florida was $62,270 for registered nurses, $39,910 for licensed practical nurses, and $23,600 for nursing aides.

Florida Online Nursing Schools as an Alternative to On-Campus Programs

Online nursing schools in Florida offer the same coursework and level of instruction as traditional programs. Where online programs differ is in the way you learn. Rather than attended scheduled class meetings, online learners work at their own pace from anywhere that has an Internet connection. Classes in an online nursing degree program might include psychology, statistics, biochemistry, and physiology.

If you're currently a nurse and need to complete mandatory continuing education units (CEUs), online courses allow you to keep working full-time while you learn. There are also hybrid nursing degree programs that offer both online and on-campus components. These programs offer the support of a physical community of fellow students plus the convenience of online coursework.
