    It's a little higher from what I've heard in NE Ohio somewhere in the neighborhood of $14 to $16 an hour with RN's roughly $10 more. This is for new grads though in Acute Care (hospital) though.

    thats pretty low. I would expect it to be at least 14.40 an hour for an LPN

    I live in NE Ohio and the average here for an LPN in a SNF in 16-19/hr. I think 12.50/hr is pretty low. I was looking on the state of Ohio website and I saw there was a correctional facility in SE Ohio hiring LPN's. Have you tried looking in other places?

    12.50 seems to be average around here...I have not checked OHIO.GOV lately for corrections, but I will check again. thanks

    I live in Dayton and I make 17.74 an hour. That's for part-time too! I think that's good. I have been at my job for 2.5 years and started at 16. I think that is really low! Course when I worked as a medical assistant I was paid less than $12.50
