Speech pathologists make $55K to $75K a year when they work full time in educational or nursing facilities. This is above average pay in the USA, and job prospects are good. However, a Masters degree is required, so consider the cost of graduate school along with the earnings.

"A lot of money" is subjective, so you have to decide what that means. Most speech path professionals work in clinics or for school systems, so the pay adequate but not terrific. A master's degree is required; expect to make $55K - $75K, depending on the facility.

It depends of where you live at. Also depends on where you work at. You work at a hospital, yes. You work for a private doctors office, yes. You might make more at either place. Also, if you have an associate or bachelor's degree, that will make a big difference too.
