    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?

    I started at $14.25/hr in NW Ohio, prn with no benefits or call-in pay, .50/hr shift differential weekends/noc, $1/hr weekends. I keep a (very) part-time aide position to get call-in pay.

    What does TX pay new grad LPNs?
    I was earning $18.50 hourly as a new grad LVN in the Dallas/Fort Worth area of Texas back in 2006 (Texas refers to basic nurses as LVNs, not LPNs).

    Since Texas is such a huge state, the starting pay rates are highly dependent upon the city and region (for instance, West Texas, Deep East Texas, and so forth).

    Texas, $17/hr but I know some that got started elsewhere at $20/hr, some as low as $15/hr.

    I only got to work for 6 days in the LTC facility I was at because they fired me last Thu. when I told them I wasn't ready to come off orientation!! I was making 18hr but $2 more hourly on weekends, double time on Christmas Day they said and time and a half on like 5 other holidays...this is Central Indiana.
