    The starting wage is very dependent upon the city and state in which the LPN/LVN is located. For example, the LPN in rural Mississippi might be earning less than $14 hourly due to the low regional cost of living there, but the LVN in San Francisco might be earning $28 hourly due to the very high cost of living.

    In my area of MS. new grad LPNs start at $16-$18 per hour without shift diff. In the LTC I work in the shift diff. is $2.50 per hour for evening and night shifts.

    That's MS. for you As a MDS Nurse I was making less than I will be making working the floor, and with better benefits.

    What does TX pay new grad LPNs?
