    What are your duties in the plastic surgeon's office? I live in New York, also, and am hearing that this is the move for LPNs these days.

    Started at $21.50, went to $22.50 after passing boards. Now, after 10 months I am making $24.60 with shift diff. of $.75 (nice hospital, but lousy diff rate).

    I am an RN, BSN.

    I also live in New York. What are your duties in the plastic surgery office? I am hearing that this is a good move for LPNs these days. I am an LPN that started with $37,688 as a new nurse last year and our salary will be going up to $40,304 in 2/08.

    Went from $24.75/ hour when I started in January. I'm up to ~$46.00/ hour now (after a small raise; different nursing field). This is living in Kern County, CA.

    Annor, I am interested also in your "duties" at the plastic surgeons office. That is an excellent pay rate. Do you have benefits package as well? Or is it a prn-like position w/o benefits? I assume the cost of living is a little more there perhaps?

    I work for a group of 5 plastic surgeons in a privately owned office/ambulatory surgery center. Been here 11 years altogether, almost 6 years as an RN, making almost $22/hr. Our benefits package is really good in comparison to hospitals in our area, not sure about other MD offices. But it seems to me we need a market adjustement as I feel our pay should be a little more (as well as some other small things to boost staff morale that I won't get into here). I also think they should take experience into consideration when we get new people. Someone w/ 20 years experience starts at the same amount as someone w/ 1 year.

    We don't typically use LPNs. We only have 2 as opposed to 13 surgical techs and 17 RNs. The LPNs work only in the front office.

    Anyways, RNs here work in 4 "areas": Pre-op, PACU, OR (usually as circulator) and in the office seeing patients in consult/pre-op/post-op/follow-up periods.

    Overall it is a pleasant, not too stressful place to work. A few tweaks w/ pay and benefits would make it close to perfect!

    Anyways, interested in hearing about your job!
