Healthcare Administration Schools in Florida

There is a reason why people refer to Florida as the “Sunshine State”. Nearly 60-70% of all days throughout the year provide sunshine to the residents of the state. That’s just a bit shy of California.

Florida offers students a wide breadth of beautiful coastline on both the Atlantic and Gulf shores for students to enjoy. If you’re the type of person who likes to be able to sit outside and study on a nice day, Florida is the place for you.

With the rapid aging of the US population, Florida is going to become an ever more popular destination for those looking to retire. This means more jobs for new graduates as they finish their Master programs.

Many health administrators will be needed to run new long-term care facilities, rehabilitation centers, home health clinics and skilled nursing facilities. As is the case today, hospitals will continue to be filled with those needing urgent and critical care.

Florida is one of the top 15 states in terms of highest employment of health managers. Acccording to the BLS, there are about 9,910 health managers currently employed in the state.

In terms of median salary, you can expect to make somewhere around $103,000 as a health admin worker in Florida. This will of course depend on experience and seniority.
