Hospital vs Nursing Home Salary


Hi. Which of the two do you think has the higher salary for an LPN. I know nursing isn't all about salary, but I'd just like general info. Thank you.


Specializes in LTC, Management. Has 4 years experience.


You're right it is not all about the money, but that is an important part of any job. In my area of Ohio LPNs are paid around $20-$22 an hour in a SNF. LPNs are not used in the local hospitals, but their doctor offices connected to them make between $16-$18 an hour.

Keep in mind the stress levels, hours and skills used when making your choice! 

Hope this helps!
