    I am an LPN in Chicago and you can mostly only work in nursing homes or home health some hospitals but very rare you can earn from $21 with no experience to $26 I have heard but have not witnesses the $26 but the jobs are plentiful even though you work like a dog !!

    Wow! but i guess as a nurse that's expected .... do u think its possible to live in chicago on a lpn salary after taxes and everything has been taken.... i mean i'm just going to be living alone and i only need to rent a small studio/ room somewhere safe .... is it possible with only 21 an hour??

    Yes! that's enough to live in Chicago.May be cheaper to live in the Suburbs though....
