LPN, LTC, Wages, Info Please

  1. Hi everyone! I am an LPN currently living in Alabama. I have already obtained my Florida LPN license. I am interested in info on LPN wages in LTC facilities. I plan to finish up my RN after moving. I am mostly interested in the Pasco, Citrus, Marion county areas. I am origionally from Tampa. But have not lived in FL in 20 years. I have an interview with a LTC facility at the end of this month for possible relocation to the Gainesville area. So any info would be appreciated. As far as I can tell from posts I have read the RN pay seems to be about the same as here. LPN I'm unsure. I currently make $15.18
    I need something to compare that too.
    Thanks! smjlpn

    I work agency from St Pete to Gainesville. $20. at LTC. Was offered job by agency to staff "permanent" LTC facility at $20. (I declined) LTC on the east side of St Pete were paying $20. for perdiem. Seems like some of the LTC are starting to offer sign on for the LPN's. :hatparty: Around Gainesville I am hearing it ranges from $12.00-$15.00
    Are U willing to do Hospice? Hospice of the FL Suncoast (Largo) after a year of employment offer to pay for schooling LPN-RN. They have great benefits and really a great place to work IMO and I was just agency . Though wages are lower but for the benefits and the environment it might be well worth it! I was quoted a county correctional job at $11.78 an hour Another correctional job OPS for State at $21.
