I'm new grad LPN so I'm looking to get a job, but I'm new in this and I have no idea where I should to start first. I was checking some places and found 2 nursing homes. The one is a nonprofit organization and it is 30min far from home (Larger 420 residents) and the another one is a profit organization and it is 6 min from home (Medium 195 residents)

What profit and nonprofit means??

Basically: For profit means someone is pocketing the money profits and nonprofit means the money profits are used to support the facility.

A representative of a profit organization once asked, "Really, aren't all organizations for profit?"

Generally speaking, nonprofit facilities channel their profits back into the facility and have more and better resources that can be utilized by the caregivers.

An example would be: The non profit would purchase deluxe equipment in good supply, while the for profit would buy enough Brand X equipment to merely get by and someone would pocket the residue.

There are exceptions, and no place is perfect, but in general you're better off working for a non-profit.

Go with the nonprofit. Usually better all around. Do investigate their scores online. Ask friends or graduates of your school.
