    I've been an LPN for a year started out at 21/hr. I've had a pretty hefty increase in my salary at the 1 year mark. I live in the Chicagoland area.

    i was making $24 per hour as an lpn. so $24 x 160 hrs (4 weeks) = $3,840 per month (or every 4 weeks). but i get paid bi-weekly so $1,920 every 2 weeks.

    that is not my take home though because i have a lot of deductions e.g. ss, federal tax, state tax, 401k, union dues, etc...

    $2,600/month. like what i said i have a lot of deductions and even put more on extra 401k, pension, credit union savings, etc..these are all automatically deducted. and i always put 0 dependent so during income tax time, i get a lot back.

    my first year as an lpn, i made $60,000 (with some ot).

    I don't fare as well as the other posters. I live in Ohio, have been a lpn for 1 year. I started out a 16 dollars an hour. still make the same. I bring home about 2114.00 a month. I can get alot more if I work some overtime, but when 3:30 rolls around I am ready to get outta there.

    Right out of school I started at 20.50/hr for the 1st 6 mos then got a raise to 21/hr. With overtime that 1st year I made about 52,000. Now im back in school working part-time for an agency so far its been 18.45-23/hr but it depends on the case. I was with one agency that gave me 35/hr for intermittent visits.
