How Much Do PTs Make In SC?
$43.75 per hour
$2,050 per week
$79,345 per year
We compiled hiring data from several sources to generate the salary statistics above. Most of the sources are hiring sites like indeed.com that include a lot of entry level positions which can bring down the average. One interesting thing to take note of is that the jobs listed with weekly pay have much higher salaries. For instance, a Physical Therapist that's paid $2,050 per week will earn over $106,000 a year. Travel positions typically pay by the week rather than with a yearly salary or an hourly rate. This implies that travel positions are the best way to earn more money as a PT. Another major factor for compensation is setting. Certain settings such as skilled nursing facilities pay more than others. Likewise, schools typically pay less and go through periods of hiring during the summer. This means that if you gather salary data in the summer you might get different data than if you do your research during the rest of the year.
