- by Rico84 Nov 4, '11Im curious. Im a brand new LPN and jus accepted a position on a cardiac stepdown unit and the rate is $19.64 do you guys think this is a good start rate?? I'm more excited to learn all about cardiac disease's than the rate and am beyond excited to take care of them! but I'm wondering where im at compared to other new grads

Is that a good salary in south California? No way. North Jersey? Not really. Rural Maine? You bet.
Why don't you do a google search for the average LPN salary in your city and compare?

- Nov 5, '11 by canchaserVery good in st Louis I started as a LPn on step down 10 yrs ago at 17.00 with no benefits. They have since told all LPn to get rn or find a new job within 2 years. So I got my rn .

The median LPN salary in that area is about 40,000 dollars, which is roughly 21 dollars per hour for a full time position. So for a new grad with no experience, your salary looks great! Congratulations.
