I was curious to know what type of nursing you all do and what it pays in your area? I've been looking at other positions (home health, hospitals, and doctors offices) but I don't know what fair pay is. Several of the home health agencies by me pay $15/hr with no benefits!
Below are some older threads that discuss LPN pay around Florida. They are from 2011 and 2012, so those wages should still be similar:
Based on what I read, your salary is in the average range, although on the low side. I would still consider that "fair" in today's market. There's no harm in continuing to look for other jobs. In Southern California, where I am, some places offer new grad RNs
$18-20/hr. That's ridiculous! It's almost only half of the average range for the area. But competition is fierce for new grads so some new grads will take it because it's better than nothing.
