    BTW, as appalling as nursing salaries are in some areas, hands down they still beat those for librarians (basic education is a master's degree.) There's a well known, wealthy place here that pays 28K to librarians and requires a 2nd master's degree and reading facility in 2 European languages in addition to English. And people wonder why I work as a nurse. Duh!

    I have been an LPN for 11 years. I have always worked in hospital settings, and have worked in multiple specialty areas. I started out in New Orleans Louisiana making $13.00/hr in an inhouse staffing pool. When I left I was making $15.52/hr I then worked in Las Vegas for an agency making $19-21.00/ hr. I am now doing travel nursing this assignment in Vermont pays $20.00 plus housing. I often here bitterness from staff urses on the desparity in pay between agency and staff. I totally agree. Which is why I CHOOSE Never to be staff. I make more even paying for my own health insurance. It is a sad state when the nation is facing such a critical shortage of nurses they are not willing to pay. In fact my brother worksas a casino supervisior, has only a highschool education he makes $20.00 and gets a 20 min brek for every hour worked.
    You would think that a job that is both physically, mentally and intellectually demanding would pay better wouldn't you?

    I was in an RN program when my mother died and I inherated her children. No longer having the luxery of time I took the LPN course. I am often told "you are a good LPN' something that makes me wince because I think of myself as a "good nurse". I have chosen not to go into an RN course because it would mean taking a pay cut!!!!! I found that agencies want a year of exrerience and won't count my time as an LPN. Staff nurses make less as a starting nurse. As for education I am a person who is into constant self education. Reading books and magazines pertaining to medicine as well as jotting down diagnosis unfamiliar to me and the coworkers I question and looking them up on the multiple medical databases availlabel on the web. I want the leters RN only because it leads to more respect in the proffession not because it means anything in skill or knowledge. This respect is unfortunatly not worth denting my pocket book for.

    I recently took a "baylor shift" and I work 3p-7a(16hrs) two days a week with no weekends. I get paid for 40 hrs.........big deal though because, if I was working 8 hrs, and if I worked another shift it would be time in half(for over 8 hrs) and this would be the same(if I did it 2 days also) as getting what the company calls "free 8 hrs pay". Believe me they are not giving us anything extra. Recently so a job posted, "work 56 hrs get paid for 80hrs" It was a 7 day on , 7 days off position. Same deal, figure it out working 40 hrs and getting paid overtime for the remaining 16 hrs.........works out pretty close.................I am switching to our "no insurance" position......I will be getting paid $7 more an hr with that and that works out to $280 more in my paycheck weekly. I am looking into health insurance policies and have found many that range from 180-400 a month. Seems to me, that's a better situation for me. I could use the money, plus I would still have health insurance??? Makes sense to me. I also started working with a pool and I can see why it would be hard to go back to hosp/facility setting. A friend of mine, gave up working at the facility where we both started and now works only 'Pool"...and she loves it..................
