Becoming a registered nurse in Ohio offers a lot of benefits. Areas such as Lima and Huntington-Ashland show the highest concentrations in RN jobs with more than 122,000 RNs throughout the state. This data is according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Though this is the case, Ohio remains one of the states that has the highest percentage of shortage in nurses.

As an LPN in Ohio, you are expected to work side-by-side with a registered nurse or a physician. There are many Practical Nursing programs in Ohio. Tuition assistance is now being offered by state employers, with the Ohio State Board of Nursing also providing scholarships and loans to eligible applicants.
