I am currently working as an RN in a Burn ICU. I have been told that I will need some MICU or SICU experience to get into CRNA school. The area where I live in the midwest is saturated with nurses and almost all hospitals have been laying off. My hospital is expected to be next. I don't think I'll have any chance of changing units anytime soon, and there's a pretty good chance I may lose my job, based on seniority. My five year plan has always included moving to Southwest Florida. I thought it would be after I finished CRNA school, but now I'm rethinking it. So, I'm wondering about job availability for ICU nurses in Florida, and the Southwest area in particular. Also, has anybody moved from the midwest to Florida, how do the hospitals compare? I would really appreciate any information I could get!
