Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner Salary in Florida - FL

Since 1997, Florida’s Department of Health has been required to maintain published, public profiles on many of its health care professionals, including all Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioners. This information includes the practitioner’s education; practice and mailing address; specialty; current staff privileges and hospital affiliations; and any legal, board or financial action that may have been taken against the practitioner. Such strict regulations may be one reason why mental health nurse practitioner salaries are greater in Florida than in many other states. With psychiatric nurse practitioners held to such high standards, it only stands to reason that they would earn more money than their counterparts working in other states.
