About Miami

Nurses and allied health professionals looking for the best healthcare employers in Miami, FL have tons of quality healthcare facilities to choose from. Florida had 321 hospitals and 479 freestanding ambulatory surgery centers in August 2021 and about 10% of them were in the Miami-Dade area. Florida ranks third among states for the highest employment of registered nurses and all healthcare practitioners and technical occupations combined. It ranks fifth for healthcare support occupations. The Miami-Fort Lauderdale-West Palm Beach metro area ranks in the top 10 for the highest level of employment of RNs and all healthcare practitioners and technical occupations. 

The coastal metropolis of Miami in southeastern Florida is one of the most vibrant metro areas in the nation with tropical beach-ready weather most of the year and moderate temps the rest of the time. Its spectacular beaches and stunning natural areas offer plenty of fun activities for local healthcare workers to enjoy, but the city offers even more to do. From its famous nightlife to airboat rides in the Everglades to tons of family-friendly activities like delightful animal encounters at the Miami Zoo, Seaquarium, and Jungle Island. Miami's population is very accepting of traditional and nontraditional families, so everyone feels welcome. Everyone also enjoys a mouthwatering array of cuisine, including iconic local dishes.

Although nurses and other medical professionals in Florida earn a moderate wage, it’s one of only nine states that don’t collect income taxes on wages. Healthcare workers keep more of their paycheck compared to the other 41 states with the added bonus of living in the Sunshine State. Per the Bureau of Labor Statistics, RNs in the metro earned an hourly mean wage of $34.76 and an annual mean wage of $72,300 in May 2020. Healthcare practitioners and technical occupations combined earned an hourly mean wage of $39.87 and an annual mean wage of $82,920.

Miami’s cost of living is about 23% higher than the national average, but in October 2021, a majority of homes for sale in Miami sold for below the asking price. Nurses and allied health professionals want to work for the best healthcare employers in Miami, FL, but they also want access to the best schools for their children.
