    I work in a hospital in Lawrence as an IV certified LPN; I started at 15+ an hour (I was not a new grad, I had worked as an aide and secretary at this hospital before nursing school. Then I worked for 4+ years as an office nurse and L/D/M/B nurse); 1.25 week night shift differential, 1.50 weekend night shift differential. Full benefits, including PTO, fairly good health insurance, that sort of thing. 12 hour shift.

    I also work very prn through an agency, usually at a LTC facility. There I make 23 an hour for night shift. The shifts at this facility are 8 hour.

    I know I'm a new LPN graduate ...........but I was offered only $12.00 an hour by one of the 3 major hospitals in Wichita, Kansas. To me this seems really low....What kind of hourly wage can I expect as new grad?? ( I do have 2 years experience working as a CNA, HHA and I was making over $10.00 an hour several years ago.)
