    I, too, am amazed at what the pittance they pay some of you. We have lower pay here in the very NW corner of WA state than they do in Seattle.

    My wife was at $16.00 as a new grad LPN in an out pt surgery center. no weekends and almost always off on time, very occasional overtime, ok bennies.

    LTC here is about 14-15 for new grad LPN's. I expect to get 15-16 if I stay local and towards 20 if I go to the greater seattle are (about 1-1.5hrs)

    Here new grad RN's start at about 22+ and about another 5 bucks for Seattle.

    I work at a facility that the LPNs make $21.75 an hour and a $3.00 shift diff for evenings and nights. We also have a baylor program where you work 24 hours and get paid for 40 hours every weekend 12 hour shifts. That comes to 33.50 per hour
    What area is this in? You give no indication of where you are.

    Our starting rate for a brand new LPN is $19.00/hr....automatic $.35 at 3 months and 6 months with more for years of experience. The RNs start at 21.50.
    My first job as an RN in a SNF, and it was the highest paying place for 50 miles....$8/hr, but then again it was 1982.

    I live in Upstate SC. I'm a brand-new LPN (took the NCLEX-PN on Saturday, license issued Tuesday, applied on Wednesday, interviewed and accepted position at LTC facility today (Thursday)).

    I'll be working 7A-7P Saturday and Sunday alternate weeks. (This is perfect for me since I'm going on for my RN.) Starting pay for new LPNs is $16.50/hr. Add $1.00/hr for weekends. Another $1.00/hr for '2nd shift' (from 3P-11P) and $1.50 for '3rd shift' (11P-7A). And any hours over 8 in a 24-hr period is time-and-a-half.

    So I'll make $17.50/hr from 7A-3P, then 18.50/hr from 3P-4P, then roughly $27.00/hr from 3P-7P.
