    From what I hear LPN's make from $15 to $18 in Florida. Depending on area and experience of course.

    Oh! And LPN's are mostly employed in nursing homes. Most hospitals are sending their LPN's to get their RN license or they are out. There are also some pediatric home care LPN jobs I have seen posted though.

    Depending on experience roughly $20/hr.There are few hospital jobs for LPNs, but if you are willing to go to more rural areas, there are still some good jobs for LPNs. I know one hospital was still giving sign on bonuses for nurses, including LPNs as recently as this past July.

    If you want to live in the bigger cities, you are mainly looking at long term care, nursing homes and home health type facilities.

    Good luck in your search!
