I just posted this reply re: pay in Ltc in connecticut. I make about $26.00 per hour where I work and this applies to all lpns new grads, new hirees. All Ltc facilities in the area pay about the same. some even more. Sounds like the highest in the states. Not hard to find job. same job 24 years I even got hired 24 years ago for 24 hrs (during a nusring shortage)with full benefits for me and kids!! Hard to leave under those circumstances. Double time and half for holdays(13) which would be $60/hr.5 weeks vacation etc...
Believe me I work all holidays. Ltc tho alot harder than when I started!! Call me need a job?

Hi i am a lpn who lives in Fairfield county Ct, the most expensive area to live in and i have five years exp. If you work LTC staffing you can make up to $35 an hour and if you work holidays you can double that amount..LTC staffing can be really hard i seen some lpns bring in $2500 weekly there is a real need in this area but rents are very high 1 bedroom can cost $1000+ a month and can require three months deposit.
