I've been an RN for about 7 months now in California. I work at Cedars Sinai who pays really well. ive had an idea of moving to Illinois cause I have alot of cousins over there. i just wanna kno (they live around the glendale heights region) how much an RN makes, caue i figure if I get promoted to CNII, then I woulld leave. I would have my experience to be hired as a CNII someone else in Illinois. How much does an RN make hourly in Illinois and and what is the patient ratio there? hope you guys can help me out.
Although I'm not a nurse I do have chemistry classes with a few LPN's and my friend is an LPN as well. I have been told that the:
1. 2nd yr. LPN in the nursing home makes 22.00 per hour working doubles (65K to date)
2. 3rd yr. LPN in hospice makes 25-28 per hour
3. 4-5th yr. LPN in nursing home AND private care makes about 6000 per month (yes, with plenty of doubles).
As you can see, hourly salary varies and annual salary depends on doubles as well. Now, this IS what I was told. I hope this helps. Best wishes.
