Looking to start or change your nursing career? Interested in moving to the Sunshine State? If you answered yes to these two questions then there might be a perfect opportunity for you. AdventHealth is looking to hire more than 170 nurses in the Central Florida region immediately.
This recruitment comes directly after Florida hospitals were hit with a shortage of nurses in early 2018. New labor numbers show our country needs more than one million nurses in the next four years to keep up.
According to the organization, available nursing positions are at nine locations in Altamonte, Apopka, Celebration, East Orlando, Kissimmee, Orlando, and Winter Park. There are job openings in everything from outpatient care to intensive unit and surgical care.
In an attempt to fill the positions quickly AdventHealth is holding a hiring event tomorrow in several Florida locations, so anyone who is in the area and would like to attend their hiring event can do so at any of the following locations:
- Family Resource Center at AdventHealth Altamonte Springs
- Precedo and Ginsburg Tower - Creation conference centers in Orlando
- Conference center inside the AdventHealth Apopka hospital
- Woodlands Conference Room A inside the medical plaza in Kissimmee
- AdventHealth Winter Park
- Conference room inside AdventHealth Winter Garden hospital
- AdventHealth Celebration
Job candidates will be interviewed and those who pass the interviews will be hired on the spot. The event schedule is from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Jan. 29.
AdventHealth officials said bonuses up to $10,000 and relocation costs will be offered for certain jobs during the event.
Of course, anyone who is interested in working for the company and is not able to make the hiring event is still invited to apply through their website - they are accepting online applications until February 5.
According to their website, graduates are welcome to attend but this event is specifically for registered nurses only - position openings for LPNs, CNAs, and ARNPs can be found here.
If you decide to attend the in-person event, their site states to "dress for the success" and bring extra copies of your resume.
There is no direct information about the expected salary for each position, but according to Glassdoor, the average registered Florida nurse salary is $69,270 a year.
You can find information on what to expect, hiring incentives, and more background on the company on their official website page.
