Starting pay for LPN in Alabama?
- 0Jul 13, '10 by vinsonbmHi, I have been going through the forums here looking for starting lpn salaries in Alabama. I really havent found a definite answer. Does anyone know the starting pay for lpn's? I am in Tuscaloosa but interested in different counties also. --This isn't going to make me change my mind to finish school I am honestly just curious!! Thanks!

Hey thanks for the reply! I am definetly going to get my RN. I just didn't want to wait around on the list so I decided to go ahead and get my LPN and then bridge. I was thinking between 14-15 so I guess I was close. I will hope for the the 17. Once agian, thanks for the info!
- 0Mar 13, '12 by shun85Im a LPN & i work in the birmingham/hoover area. at the ltc facility i worked at i was paid $16.00 an hr on day shift and $17.50 for evening shift. at the local hospital im paid close to 16$ an hr now. i also work with a staffing agency that pays $22/hr. i have two years experience as a lpn. LTC always pay lpn's better, if youre looking for a decent pay. However i love the hospital im working at. i work within a clinic setting, so im paid less but the convience makes up for it. (i have weekends/ holidays off. unlike the LPN's working on the med floors) hope this helps!
- 0Feb 9 by bowie80I just graduated summer of 2013, and am in Baldwin county in Alabama. Most nursing homes offer $16 hr with shift dif of 1-1.75 hr. I wanted to work in a clinic/dr office, and most don't hire lpn anymore. (Now that they can hire MA, s and pay only minimum wage) The hospitals don't hire LPN's anymore. So unless you want to work in long term care, you def should go back to school for RN.
