About Orlando

Nurses and allied health professionals looking for the best healthcare employers in Orlando, Florida, have several top healthcare facilities to choose from in this part of the Sunshine State. The Orlando, FL region employed 65,800 healthcare practitioners and technicians, including 21,530 registered nurses, in May 2020. The city boasts two nationally ranked hospitals, including the internationally renowned AdventHealth Orlando and Orlando Regional Medical Center, Central Florida's only Level One Trauma Center.

Orlando is a fantastic location for healthcare workers with families or who are just kids at heart because it’s home to that world-famous mouse, Mickey, and his pals. Disney World, Universal Orlando, LEGOLAND and SeaWorld are major attractions that attract many nurses and other medical professionals to Orlando to live, work and play in the Theme Park Capital of the World. The kids’ educations are also covered with 99 public elementary, middle and high schools, including 46 high schools recognized on U.S. News & World Report's Best High Schools rankings.

It’s also a great place to soak up some famous Florida sunshine or hang out on one of the many nearby beaches about an hour away during one of Orlando’s 233 sunny days per year. Summers in Orlando can be hot and humid, but temperatures over 95 degrees are rare and comfortable breezes make sticky days bearable. Winters are mild with light rainfall and very little chance of snow. 

Orlando is a diverse resort city and residents are hard-pressed to run out of things to do. Sports fans cheer the Orlando Magic, outdoorsy healthcare workers have tons of watersports and outdoor adventures and shopaholics find plenty of distinct shopping areas. Orlando’s expansive dining opportunities include local and global cuisine and everything from dishes prepared by celebrity chefs to fresh farm-to-table yumminess. It boasts a vibrant, walkable entertainment district with acclaimed performing arts, galleries and museums, and the nightlife districts fulfill all your needs for live music, hilarious comedy clubs and high-energy dance clubs. It’s no wonder Orlando made the Top 150 Best Places to Live in the U.S. and Best Places to Live in Florida lists in 2021-2022.

The cost of living in Orlando is higher than the national average by about 4%, but that isn’t much compared to all the amenities the location offers. Although nurses and other medical professionals in Florida earn a moderate wage, the state doesn’t collect income taxes on wages, which increases take-home pay and helps offset the slightly higher cost of living. Registered nurses in the Orlando metro area earned an average hourly wage of $32.37 and average annual salary of $67,330 in May 2020. All healthcare practitioners and technical occupations combined earned an average hourly wage of $35.66 and an average annual salary of $74,160.
