    Does anyone work in a state facility? I am curious about what I can expect working at a state psychiatric facility. I probably would work there anyway if offered a position, regardless of pay (within reason) but I would like an idea anyway. Any ideas?
    Elmira Psychiatric (State run) shows 35K on their job description. This is par for NYState LPNs (DDSO is the same), though I don't know if there is a shift differential. Benefits are very good also.

    I'm in Southern Illinois and I currently work in Home Health. Eight years ago I started out at 13.50/hr and am now up to 15.75/hr. That is pretty decent pay for LPN's around here. Several area hospitals start new LPN's out at 11.72 and new RN's out at 18.00.

    What do you mean by less case load? Do you mean the number of patients, or the acuity of cases? I'm asking because I work in a nursing home in Western PA and have 30 people to care for, where the hospital jobs have 5-8 people.

    I work in the Bay Area in Solano county (California) at a LTCF and I get $25.40/hr as a new grad with NO shift differential for NOC shift and no benefits. I heard other LTCF in neighboring Napa county pay LVNs up to $27/hr and in San Francisco county up to $30/hr with benefits and shift differential. Clinic LVNs can get paid anywhere in between $20/hr - $28/hr in the bay area. With State Hospitals/Prisons, pay varies depending on geographical location and experience. This can range from $3200/month to $4500/month. The plus side is that there's always OT if u want to work and the benifits are phenominal... at least that's what they told me when I applied there earlier this year.
