I was wondering if people could give me some feed back on the rate of pay as an RN and LPN and what type of facility you are working in thanks

I work at a hospital as an LPN. I am a nurse with nursing responsibilities. Sad fact of the matter, new grad LPNs in a hospital (should they be lucky enough to get one) will start off at $14.36/hr. My hospital said my previous work experience did not count/factor into the pay scale because it was not acute care / hospital experience.
The following wages are for LPNs without work experience, fresh from school.
Behavioral health: $~17-ish/hr
Methadone clinics: $15.50/hr
Rehab (Kindred): $21/hr
LTC (American Senior community): ~$17-ish
Corrections (Corizon): $14.69/h ($18.50 as prn)
grp home (Warner transitional): ~$19-$20/hr
Assisted Living (The Stratford): $19.5
St. Vincent clinic float pool: $17/hr
Agency (Maxim): $16-$19/hr
That's all I know from previous job offers I've received or have actually taken.
Oh and for the RNs I know of (without experience)....
St. Vincent: $21.6/hr
Wishard: $20.50/hr (after one year: immediate jump to $21.5)
IU health: ????
Kindred (rehab): $29/hr
Corrections (corizon): $21.75 or maybe it was $23ish/hr- don't remember.
Agency (Maxim): $25-30+
I hope this helped compare pay rates in Indiana. I'm kinda a snoop when it comes to these things b/c i like to know how much I'm getting rolled over now as an LPN vs what it will be like when I'm an RN.
