Soak Up The Sun And Surf

Relaxing Not Taxing

Florida is one of just seven states that don't charge state income tax, which means you can take home more of your pay check. While Florida isn't the cheapest state to live in, the price of groceries, utility services and general expenses are comparable to the country's average.

One thing that makes Florida more expensive is the cost of housing, but since housing is included as part of your allied health travel salary package, this is a non-issue.

Based on a 40-hour work week, you can expect to earn a weekly average of $1,500 to $1,800 for many travel allied heath jobs in Florida. Allied health travel assignments typically run for 13 weeks and offer generous perks like 401(k) and flex spending, life insurance, free continuing education, referral bonuses and medical, dental and vision benefits, among others.
