RPN pay scale - Page 2Register Today!
- Jan 31, '12 by Daisy_08as an rpn i started at 26 in a hosp and 23 in ltc. in the hosp the differentials put me over 30. i do have a friend who works ltc and makes more on her base pay then i do with my differentials, so it all depends on where you’re working. pay is negotiated by the unions where i am. rns have a much higher cap then rpns.
ps old folks home won’t fly anymore its ltc from here on in.
- Feb 2, '12 by itsmejuliQuote from jake the nurseDon't knock LTC, you can gain some very good experiences that will help you in your next job. I worked LTC when I graduated LPN, it was great experience for time management and assessment skills.Yea I am hoping that Kingston General Hospital is hiring RPN's when I get out of school worst case end up in an old folks home until they begin hiring.
- Feb 2, '12 by Fiona59Yup, got to agree. I started out in LTC/Continuing Care. You take what you can to repay those student loans and keep the skills alive.
Those who hold out for their "dream" job need to grow up.
Nursing is like a wolfpack. Low wolf in the pack has to suck it up and deal with the jobs nobody really wants.
