I just learned some distrubing news last night! I learned the base pay for RN's at our hospital is $14.00/hr. I've been an LPN at this hospital for over 12 years and I only make .38 less than that.
Now I don't know what to do when I get out of school. HOw much do I ask for? What's reasonable? I know Georgia pays alot less than up north. But.......I think that's LOW. I did hear on of the "medical centers" in the next largest town, has a base pay of $12.95.
I would be interested in hearing your views. I live in a small town in SOUTH GEORGIA. I work at a rural hospital. PLease help me realize my expections.
