Cleveland Ohio here guys.. I know everywhere in the world is so different
I know some hospitals in Ohio have shifted focus from LPNs to RNs (I'm from Cleveland, too!). I have a friend who is an LPN that in addition to working at an LTC also got a job at EMH (Elyria) and works primarily in the ER but she also floats. She is currently in school getting her RN, too.
I don't know how Summa (Akron) is now, but I used to work there as a tech and there were LPNs working throughout the hospital. Some of them were in the process of obtaining their RN, others were not. However, I also do know that recently Summa and Akron General laid off some employees, some of them being LPNs with the exception of those who were either retiring soon or have been with the hospital for a long time. With Summa, that might have been because of their Magnet status they achieved in 2011, but I'm not sure.
Not sure about CCF, Metro or UH. I think Southwest General (part of the UH system in Middleburg Heights) hires LPNs. Your best bet is to search the facilities for job openings.
