    Hospitals dont hire lpns much anymore. LTC's 16 - 20 range, dr office 14-16, agencies 18-22.
    I currently make 20 w/ pd benefits.

    Wow it is amazing the different rates of pay.. I work here in East Tennessee about 20 minutes north of knoxville, TN and I make $17 an hour I have been there for exactly 1 year and 6 months.. My wife is also an LPN there and she makes $18.88 an hour and she has been there 4 years and 2 months. That does include our $.50 night shift diff too.

    This topic has been around before, but I was looking for something more up to date. Things have fluctuated in past two years or so. I know people are always looking for salaries and most of the time its for RN's. I'll start ;-)


    Around the Cincinnati area here I'm not sure about the starting pay or pay in hospitals for LPN's. But I know LTC facilities are about 16 to start ranging up to about 22. I've seen ad's in the paper saying $24 but I don't know what that was for. Agencys are about 21-25 dollars for LPN's also. I believe Jobs are plentiful around here! Also when I was up in columbus, I heard an instructor saying they are starting their LPN's out with $27-30 while the RN's get about $40-50 ..I don't really believe that, but I just tossed that out there maybe for some clarification?

    I live in Bay Area (san Jose, CA) Ive asked & learned that you don't get less than $25/hr as an entry level LVN. Most of the LVN's i know get $27 up/hr (homehealth, hospice & SNF).

    cheers!

    I cant believe the wages are so low. I have been an LPN since 1985. The last time i made under $20 per hour was about 8 years ago. So sorry I know where i won't relocate to.

    I got recently hired in a Convalescent Hospital (Cupertino, California) I got an offer of $31/hr w/ benefits. Im a fresh green, new LVN..but as ive said before, around here in our area pay rate is in between $25-28/hr. One of my classmate got recently hired also got an offer of 28/hr (San Rafael, CA).. hope i helped in answering your question.

    I live in North Carolina. The hospital I work at start LPNs at $14 max pay is around $22. :spin:

    That does not include shift dif for evenings or nights. Imagine working holidays with double pay, and shift dif. If you are willing to work those shifts, imagine the money your able to work.

    There aren't many LPNs where I work, most are going back to get their RN.

    I've looked through the 30 something pages in this post and I didn't see any pay rate for Western Washington, Seattle/Tacoma area. I'm aspiring to be an LPN in this area. What is beginning pay, anybody know??? Thanks so much!!:spin:

    I'm in Philadelphia. As a GRADUATE Nurse (permit, no license) I earned a starting rate of $19.65. After I got my license, one LTC facility offered $21 (didn't have the shift I needed though so I had to decline), another LTC facility had a Baylor/weekend position offering between $25-$27 plus full time benefits (but then they decided to discontinue the position all together for some reason!!!!), I interviewed at a rehab facility today with a starting rate of $22.50+ $1/shift diff. (hope i get it!!!!)

    I would be happy with but there's always room for more money in my account. What do prefer hospital or LTC? Just wondering which route I should go?!
