LPN Wages In Ohio

  1. I haven't seen this thread posted yet......so I will start one!

    I am interested in knowing what LPN salaries are like in the state of Ohio, both Long Term Care and Hospital. And Graduate salaries as well.

    Thank you

    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

    I'm in the northwest corner near Defiance, with 13 years exp., I just got a raise to a little over $20. I interviewed at a hospital in Lima not long ago and they offered me a little over $13.

    I live in southern ohio, in the portsmouth area.
    When I started out, fresh out of nursing school, I worked for an urgent care and made $10/hr. Thought that was some big $$ let me tell ya! lol

    I worked for a nursing home owned by the hospital (SOMC) and was paid $15.50/hr waivered.

    Now I work in a NH here in town and make $14.50/hr WITH bennies.

    I work in LTC and make 21.25 right outta school. I wouldnt take anything under 18. I busted my butt in school and expect the good pay. Its really a shame how some of these places pay. Cheapskates.

    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.

    The salary for LPN's vary widely where I live, near Columbus. LPN's can make anywhere from $14-$28 depending on what aspect of nursing you choose.
