Hourly rate for RN's, LPN's, CNA's in Your State

  1. I was just reading a Thread fo Hourly rates for LPN's and realized that it was from 2000. I could not believe how low they were! So I'm from MA, I currently work in a Nursing Home I have Associate Degree in Nursing. My hourly rate for a shift 3-11 is 24.50/hr, On weekend is 25.25 as new grad. For LPN is 19.00/HR new grad. On Sep 8th I will be working in a Hospital and I will be making 28.50/hr 3-11shift and after 6months it goes up .50cents/hr. I think is pretty good considering that I will be considered as a new grad in Acute medical floor. I graduated in june of 2007, so I don't have any experience at all when it comes to acute.

    let me know your hourly rate and your state! Just curious!!!

    Rates in Central Florida have huge variations between years of experience & hospitals.

    I've seen anything from $24-$32/hr for 10+ yr experienced RN on day shift.

    New grads - $19-21.

    I'm hoping that the rate quoted for ORMC is a new-grad rate!! It's a great hospital...I hope they're paying experienced RN's better than $21/hr!

    On the coast of South Mississippi:

    Keep in mind this is the base pay for a new, inexperienced worker in acute care, and I'm leaving out shift differentials...

    RN: $20/hr

    LPN: $14/hr

    CNA: $8/hr

    I work in a hospital in Michigan as a new grad. Start at 25.10/hr, .50 cent raise after ninety days. I think LTC is pretty close to that. Maybe a titch more.

    My facility pays 21.50 FT for a new grad LPN and 24 PRN. Not sure how that rates against other facilities in NOVA but our benefits are superior to most and our work environment is definitely superior so even if they pay more I doubt it is a fair trade.

    New RNs = 30
    CNAs = 11.50
