    I used to live in Northern California, Sanfrancisco to be exact. They pay pretty well. LPN's working in the County hospital earn between $27 and $30. I can safelly say that in the Bay Area of California they earn nothing less than $22 an hour base rate not including weekends and differentials.
    Right now, I live in houston, Texas. The pay here is not that good, it depends on where you work. Some places start out at $13/hr. Some agencies will go up to as much as $24/hr.

    However don't forget the cost of living in the Bay area is about 5x that of Houston area it only makes sense you get paid a much higher wage.

    Here in SW LA, range goes from 9 and change up to 18, depending on if it's the hospital or nursing home. Something I found out the other day that just ticks me off:angryfire :angryfire :angryfire I've been a nurse 3 1/2 yrs, a brand spanking new nurse, without any type of experience, is going to make less than a dollar less than I make right now. Which I guess is one of the main reasons I'm moving to Tx.

    As a graduating LPN, the numbers are between $15-17.50 around here (NW Ohio), depending on shift differentials and weekend hours.

    I as an LPN started out at $12.00 an hour plus $0.50 shift diff and $1.00 weekend diff.. that was one month ago.. I was interviewed for a job that is alot farther away doing 5 - 8's starting at $16 an hour if you work EVERY weekend..

    So i opted to stay where im at doing 3- 12's at $12.50 an hour for a few reasons. 1. I get payed weekly 2. i like where im at 3. i have great days Mon, tues, wed. 4. its CLOSER... blah blah blah..

    OH YEAH after one year of "experience" I get boosted up to $16.00 an hour where i am
