If you are thinking about joining the nursing profession, Florida may be the place for you. Here’s why:
Florida’s population continues to grow…
Thanks to the state’s warm breezes and sunny location, Florida continues as a popular destination. According to the Florida Chamber of Commerce, on average, more than 900 people move to Florida every single day. More than 300,000 from across the country decide to call Florida home, every year.
Nearly 23 percent of this growth will be residents aged 60 andabove. Older generations face a large number of health issues, including Alzheimer’s disease and cancer, as well as an increased risk for falls. The treatment of these and other conditions require caring nurses in settings like emergency rooms, home health agencies, rehabilitation facilities, and primary care.
Creating community-based care.
Because Florida is ahead of the nation in the aging curve, the state is home to a long list of prestigious healthcare employers such as Baptist Health, Mayo Clinic and Cleveland Clinic, to name a few. Nurses at these facilities work in cutting edge labs, emergency rooms equipped with the latest technology, and surgery theaters with the latest innovations.
Heed the call. Become a nurse.
To meet this growing need, Fortis College in Cutler Bay has expanded its career education options to offer a Practical Nursing (PN) program, providing the theory, laboratory and clinical experiences required to prepare students for entry-level positions in Practical Nursing.
