    Am in Kansas n my base pay is 19.81 an hour. That was my new grad rn starting rate. I am forced to work nights to make ends meet. If it wasn't for my night shift differential I would neeed 2 jobs to survive.

    I think 37k for a new grad for part time hours is pretty good actually. 23 an hour sounds about right for 1st year.
    The OP is doing 32 hours, only 4 away from being considered full-time. That is too low in my opinion. I have a bachelor's in psychology and in nursing; without the latter, I can get a job for 37K. Where's the sense in going to school for the BSN only to earn a measly paycheck? I love "making a difference in people's lives", but not that much to only accept coins...... Either way, it's better than nothing. I'm currently unemployed and looking for a job as a new grad.

    Sounds low to me. I'm in South Western CT and I am an LPN making $24/hr in LTC.

    I am a new graduate LPN in Connecticut, I live around the Hartford area, graduated in April and have not found a job. Can you tell me where you work and if they are hiring any more LPN's I am absolutely desperate for work and will take any shift availible. I am willing to travel anywhere in CT as well. THank you!
