n SNF here it pays 22-23 an hour if you have been a nurse over 10 years The cost of living is high if you live in a decent area. Property tax is around 4000 a year for a small home 1200sq feet. Have been looking into places to live south of Columbus Ohio and I keep coming back to Alabama as an option. I have visited the area so I am somewhat familiar with it. I mainly just want to get as much bang for my buck as possible. Just want to know what kind of pay there is in a nicer long term care facility.
