Start a LTC facility

I've been thinking about this for a while now. I'm an LPN and have been for about 3 years now. I'm thinking about going to school to get my RN, but I haven't decided yet. One thing I would love to do is start a ltc facility. I'm just not sure exactly how to go about doing it or if it's even possible for an LPN. I could really use some advice. Oh I'm not sure if it makes a difference but I would be starting it in Virginia.

There are so many regulations in long term care. In most states you have to complete a determination of need to see if your state thinks there is a need for more skilled beds.AND....it costs millions of dollars. Why in the world would you want to put yourself through that?

Millions of dollars? Most states? Can you provide any references for that?
