    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.
