2020 Update: Florida Nurse Pay Rises in the Home Care Sector

The average hourly wage for registered nurses (RNs) in Florida increased for employees working for both Medicare-certified home health agencies and Private Duty agencies compared to last year. Wages for RNs employed by Medicare agencies went up 7.92% to $35.40 per hour, meanwhile, RNs at Private Duty agencies saw a 9.22% bump to $31.39 per hour.

This data is according to HCAF's Home Care Salary & Benefits Report 2020 update, a compensation and fringe benefits study of Florida's home care industry landscape that is published annually. This year's report data is based on 133 providers' survey responses, many of which were submitted by large providers.

The report provides pay rates per hour and per visit for administrative, support, and clinical staff. Additionally, recruitment incentives, employee benefits, productivity standards, pay differentials, and job description definitions are also provided. Data is subdivided into the following six distinct groupings.

  • Statewide Certified providers (Medicare and Medicaid);
  • Statewide Private Duty and Certified providers;
  • Exclusively Private Duty providers;
  • Health care regions 1-3 for Certified and Private Duty providers;
  • Health care regions 4-8 for Certified and Private Duty providers; and
  • Health care regions 9-11 for Certified and Private Duty providers.

The electronic report is now available for purchase through HCAF's online store. The report costs $250 for HCAF members and $350 for prospective members. Agencies that participated in the survey receive the report at no charge.
