    hahaha - I think maybe they were going for "noble"? All I can imagine is a little thought bubble saying, "yeah, right".

    I took home around $800/mo as an LVN in So Cal in the late 70s. It seems to me wages for nurses have stagnated or even lost ground in the last 5 years but I haven't done the math. I don't need any new reasons to be depressed.

    I won't pretend I enjoyed it, but if it means autonomy, I'd do it again!

    I, too, was a new LPN in the late '70s-my annual salary was $9000! And, because I was only 19 and still living with Mom and Dad, most of that income was disposable! My entire LPN program was $375, and that included 2 uniforms, 2 caps, a pair of bandage scissors, and all my books. I didn't go back for my RN until I was in my 30's and had 2 kids under the age of 10 and was working full time. Boy, would I have loved a mail order nursing program that only had 33 lessons in it!!
