    We are curious Taxminia - on your public profile you state you are the following:
    Nursing Education:
    Nursing Student, LPN/LVN, RN-ASN, RN-Diploma, RN-BSN, RN-MSN, RN-PhD, Other

    When we've reread your posts when we go to your public profile - you contradict yourself over and over about what you are, where you live, and where you want to move. You are very 'knowledgeable' with opionions on many different areas and many of us would like to know more about your acquiring this education. You certainly feel strongly about the things you write about.

    Nursing is hard enough - and this site exists to make a small part of it a bit easier for many of us - a place to get a 'hug' - to get some quick info - to bounce an idea around - or to soften a bad day. We are all by nature - compassionate and caring or we wouldn't be here in the first place. It hurts - when one of 'us' tends to be quick to pass judgement, to ridicule, and to hurl insults. Passive-agression is easily recognized.

    Curious minds want to know -
    blah blah blah

    Thanks Ashera. I agree with you 100%. It is hurtful to come here to get a "hug" and end up getting "attacked" instead.

    Cali Girl what hospital was that, if you don't mind me asking????
    I am about to graduate from a LPN program in North Carolina where we are able to do IV's, the only thing we aren't able to do is Care plan on our own and hang blood basically or central lines. Wondering what salary range is out there in the bay area and does anyone know what the reciprocation is for California and North Carolina

    P.S. Here in North Carolina it seems like you have to promise your first born to get on with a hospital, which I really want even if it's not as much money to start off with for the experience. How is it out in California getting a job in an acute care setting?

    Job prosepects are very good in an Acute Care Setting- UCSF is a great hospital to take a look at as well as all of the Kaiser Permanante Medical Centers sprouted around. I would highly reccommend working here. The pay is outstanding as compared to other states.

    I work Home Health on Visits which pay from $20-$28/visit in Miami, Florida. I Grossed $72,000 last year but also I have to pay for my Vehicle's Gas and maintenence. Still, I have independence as I mostly work on my own without any supervisor. Only time I see that person is when I turn in my weekly Notes and not even then if I can avoid it! haha I hear the rates are high in the Hospitals and LTC locally but since I don't work in these places the pay rate there is of no concern to me.

    [FONT="Impact"]Just out of curiosity, are you male or female? $72,000 a year is VERY good. I am an LPN and since 1996 have gotten my Associates degree in Drug and Alcohol Counseling, a BS in Human Services with a secondary in Administration of Substance Abuse Programs and with the grace of my "higher Power", I will graduate this coming July with my Master's in Health Adminiustration. I am 60 years old and have been disabled for 11 years. In that last year of work I was administrator of an adult home and was making $45,000 with no degrees, just my license.

    I continued my education to keep my mind fresh and sharp. I also figured with a Master's I could pick a job that works around my disabilities (I need an electric scooter).

    I live in NY and would really like to move south/west. Does anyone know how the pay is in Arizona? I am glad to be able to chat here, even though I have the degrees the only work field that I know is as an LPN. : thankya:

    I am from Daytona, and it is mostly the same here...$15-19 in LTCs and $12-16 in hospital jobs if you can find them, agency pays well.

    I live in texas (in a very small town). I work L&D, med surg, and ER at the local hospital and make 14.00 plus shift differential (1.00 weekends, 1.50 nights). I know an LVN that makes 32.00 hour doing the weekend plan in Fort Worth. I have been considering applying where she works and making the drive 3 days a week (120 miles).
    I live in Fort Worth and will be graduating soon. What hospitals pay the best? I am so clueless of where to start applying.

    I am starting my first LPN job on the 9th of Jan. As a new LPN the starting pay in Tallahassee, Fl. at TMH is $11.85 hr.
    I asked my wife if I should go back to driving nails until I finished my RN program.
