    OH, sorry about that, I mean ADN as in Associates Degree Nurse. The bonus being that many LPN programs will prepare you to make the $15+ while your employer pays for the Associates and then you can make an additonal $10/hr. That's what my hubby plans to do. Vanessa

    Does your employer pay differently depending on which type of RN education the person has? BSNs used to make more but now employers want to see the RN not the initials after it.

    I know one LPN that makes just over $40,000 a year with 30 years experience. That's New Jersey by the way.

    Come to Pa it's around $22.00 + if your IV certified..And frankly not enough for what an LPN does. And for the physical effort and the hardest job on the planet a CNA is worth a lot more than they are now paid. Considering the life expectancy of their back is 5 years. Love the staff I work with..... What ever you make , it's still not enough....

    Man, some of you LPN's are making more an hour in you LTC facility then I was as an RN in mine. Even as a Charge Nurse in my facility don't think I was even making $20.00 per hour no extra pay for weekend or holidays and no benefits. Stand your ground guys and gals, they are going to have to start paying for the services we provide. WOW, I can't believe what some of you are making

    Yeah but the 10 bucks an hour was back in like 2000 when this thread was first started! There is a difference in the cost of living in certain states as one other nurse here noted, so the wages would not be as high anyway.
