hmm here in the sw ohio area(cincy,middletown,dayton) I have seen 17-19.(for new grads,and even long time nurses. I have been a nurse for 3 years with LTC and skilled nursing experience and this is what I was offered> geeeez)...thats just down right cheapskate...this really suck if you have been a nurse for a while. I decided maybe I should go to PRN but then the pay rate was the same. I had never seen that before. Seems like the cost of everything is rising and wages are staying the same
So I live about 1/2 hour or so south of Cleveland. I have been offered 17.00 at a local assisted living. I was also offered 17.50 at CCF. I was glad to take it! P/T at CCF and PRN at assisted living. Can't wait to start working!
Lawrence County (PA) is just across the line. The LCCTC LPN staff are saying $15 to $22 for the Penn-Ohio area LPNs. I saw a Craigslist ad for LPNs $25/hr someplace in the 412 area code, which I presume was Pittsburgh.
